Hugo voting ends Tomorrow
Reminder from Larry Correia:
The Hugo voting ends shortly, so if you joined the crusade to combat the scourge of Puppy Related Sadness don’t forget to get your votes in.
Related — Vox Day posts his suggested sample ballot:
Myself I have no opinion on the current voting, but on the retro-Hugos, allow me to suggest:
- Galactic Patrol by E. E. Smith (Astounding Stories, February 1938)
- Out of the Silent Planet by C. S. Lewis (The Bodley Head)
- The Legion of Time by Jack Williamson (Astounding Science-Fiction, July 1938)
- Carson of Venus by Edgar Rice Burroughs
- The Sword in the Stone by T. H. White (Collins) (this is not science fiction at all, so why is it on the ballot?)
- “Who Goes There?” by Don A Stuart [John W. Campbell] (Astounding Science-Fiction, August 1938)
- Anthem by Ayn Rand (Cassell)
I have no recommendations concerning the other candidates, so I do not rank them.
I have no recommendations here, having read none of the candidates.

Left off ballot: Farnsworth Wright, Mort Weisinger, Raymond A. Palmer, Walter H. Gilling. All of these were punks compared to Campbell, and Wright, despite his fine and wonderful and handsome last name, was a terrible editor, intrusive and lacking in taste. Campbell created modern Science Fiction out of a pulp sciffy space opera slush that previously existed, nearly singlehandedly.
