  • A mention of Mike at the Hugos

    Jeanette Ng, whose speech at let year’s Hugo’s was part of getting the John W. Campbell Award renamed to the Astounding award, mentioned Mike in an acceptance speech this year, giving him credit for calling out Campbell’s fascism and it’s negative impact on SF.

    Having trouble with the link, but you can find it on The Guardian’s site, in the book section where they covered the Hugo’s.

        This link will take you to the start of Jeanette Ng's speech: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7yGP...outu.be&t=4367

        Personally, I don't find her voice shrill at all.

        Note to the Fox: I tried embedding the vid, but it looks like maybe the short code ignores all but the first query string value.

          Thanks for that, Heresiologist! And agreed on tone. Not at all shrill.

            Cheers. If it's any further help, I've seen chatter that RF Kuang's and especially Amal El-Mohtar and Max Gladstone's acceptance speeches were quite good, even uplifting.

              I am getting old. I say that because I am not really paying attention to who has been awarded Hugos or Nebulas. I see that Ted Chiang got one.

                Or you just don’t pay attention to awards. Haha. I have award winning books from 2015 in my to-read
                pile, so it does me almost no good to pay attention to them.

                And Ted Chiang deserves all the awards.
