Link Dump: Hugo Nomination Edition

Just some links that may prove to be of some use for folks in the Hugo nomination game.
  • 2015 Hugo Sheet of Doom - This is a public Google doc with potential nominees broken out in each category. Some of the nominees are clearly, er, longshots, but at least it's a source where things are categorized by, um, category (so you don't need to figure out a way to hack a Kindle book/story to do a word count or something). It's public, so you can add stuff if you'd like, but play nice (I did my part and added Coherence and The One I Love to the Long Form Dramatic Presentation Category - and you should totally watch and nominate if you like them, because I'm doubting they will get there without a little help).
  • Chaos Horizon - An extremely thorough attempt to predict Hugo and Nebula (novel) nominees. It is basically a value neutral attempt, so there's very little in the way of proselytizing, just lots of collation and correlation, and plenty of analysis. Dude is even starting to predict the 2016 Hugos...
  • Announcing Sad Puppies 3 - Brad Torgerson takes the baton from Larry Correia and is leading the charge this year. It is mildly less combative, but will no doubt raise a lot of hackles when it manages to get something nominated. It does still seem less about "These books are awesome and deserve recognition" and more about "Other people are ideological and we need to fight them" or some such thing. I can't ever seem to get on board with this because it's just too whiny. He's also written a few follow up posts, but has not posted a list yet (and frankly, I would not really recommend wading through the comments). It's worth noting, though, that the folks who bought a supporting membership last year are still eligible to nominate this year, so there's a fair chance that we'll see more Sad Puppy nominees...
That's all for now. I'm sure I'll be posting more about the Hugos as time goes on.
