Off to New Orleans

I’m heading to New Orleans tomorrow for the PCA/ACA conference. I’ll be presenting on historicity in Fantasy novels on Saturday morning, so drop by the conference if you get a chance!

Fortunately, this means I’ll get to miss some of the initial furor when the Hugo nominations come out this Saturday. Rumors are that some 60% of the Best Novel Hugo slate will be from the Sad Puppies, and that their impact on the rest of the ballot will be even greater. I’ll be back in the middle of next week to discuss some of the numerical implications of the results, whatever they are.

Everyone enjoy the weekend!

    The rumors were correct. Where did you hear or read about the Hugo noms before they were released on Saturday??
