    As for best, Hugo have not been about that in decades so it's an irrelevant discussion
    I hate to ask, because I'm reading Jo Walton's book now and I'm really liking it, but why is she personally unpopular?

    . It just didn't gel for me as much as I feel that it's been done better by other authors.

    It's still a pretty good book.
    Yes, it's not perfect but quite enjoyable. I'd have liked Embassytown to win (and cast my vote so), but Among Others was my second choice.

    I get some photos and congrats etc. Nothing untoward

    Wanna try to be more specific?

    ETA absolutely the only controversy I can see is Ustream shutting down the ceremony due to bots, when they had permissions etc. I see a couple of blogs mention a 'beautiful letter to fans'

    So,, what the heck is this about then?

    But you posted about her 'personal unpopularity' approx nine months before that occurred. (And...hmm...I'm not seeing a huge swathe of OMG Jo is unpopular because of it either, even in that article it's noted maybe she's just name-checking someone who helped her, and it was just a bit odd)

    So, you can see the future? Or what? If you can, you can still see more than I can here.
