Following on from our post about the Dragon Awards the other day, the latest news is that after some uproar, the Dragon Awards decided to accept Alison Littlewood’s withdrawal of The Hidden People from the ballot. At the same time, and for very similar reasons, N.K. Jemisin has withdrawn The Obelisk Gate from the ballot.
No new titles will be added to the ballot to replace these books, however, ballots will be re-issued to anyone who has already voted for either book so that they will have a second chance to vote.
Meanwhile, John Scalzi has changed his mind again and has decided that The Collapsing Empire should remain on the ballot.
Meanwhile, the Hugo Awards are being announced even as I write, and I will post the results as soon as I have them all.
From Nebula and Hugo Award–nominated Carolyn Ives Gilman comes Dark Orbit, a compelling novel featuring alien contact, mystery, and murder.
Reports of a strange, new habitable planet have reached the Twenty Planets of human civilization. When a team of scientists is assembled to investigate this world, exoethnologist Sara Callicot is recruited to keep an eye on an unstable crewmate.
