Top 10 Posts For August 2017

Relatively few fans would have looked at last month’s number one post, “Livestream Hugo Ceremony on YouTube,” if the livestream broadcast had actually happened as planned.

(And, boy, did the blog ever creak and moan!)

The antics of the Dragon Awards administrators helped fill the rest of the Top 10, garnering a lot of ugly publicity by refusing to let any nominees bow out, then changing their minds, and finally, sending some of their cronies into shock by talking the writer they poormouth the most into staying on the ballot.
