Top 10 Posts for July 2017

People steamed about the Shadow Clarke jurors who felt A Closed and Common Orbit was unworthy of being shortlisted for the Clarke Award, combined with others annoyed by the low number of European creators represented in NPR’s list of “100 Favorite Comics And Graphic Novels,” united to drive the Pixel Scroll for 7/12 to the top of the charts for July.

The non-Scroll with the most views was the World Fantasy Award shortlist — because File 770 was first out of the gate with the press release.

  1. In (8), Print Policy, I still find it disturbing that it took so long for disabled members to get approved for their reservation in the one close hotel — late enough that some of them might not have then been able to schedule the trip — and I fear there are going to be people showing up there who literally won’t be able to move around their rooms.

    Without dimensions, who can tell? Just looking at the photos, I’m unsure anything but a standard manual wheelchair is going to be able to maneuver. Which is going to make it impossible for people with wide chairs, power chairs and scooters to move.

    I hope that hotel’s ready to move and remove furniture from the rooms, and I pray the turn in and out of the bathrooms is navigable. Else there might be some VERY unhappy people who’ll have wasted a lot of money, time, and spoons.

    Hopefully it’s a new enough building to comply with EU standards. (They do have standards, right? They got rules for EVERYTHING.)

    But, one of my disabilities is not being real good at judging distance by eye, so I might be COMPLETELY wrong on this. 🙂 Hope I am.
