That said, Rod Walker appreciates two things about the Rabid Puppies campaign:
1.) They are hugely, hugely entertaining. The drama goes on and on for weeks. It’s better than reality TV!
2.) They exposed the Hugos for the hollow con job that they are. The Hugo have nothing to do with excellence or even commercial success, but the repayment of favors and political backscratching. Perhaps the decades-long elevation of mediocrity is one of the reasons Amazon is devouring traditional publishing like Tiamat swallowing the moon.
