Top 10 Posts for March 2018

Chris Barkley’s proposal to name the Worldcon’s new YA Book Award after an undisclosed person (and the blowup that ensued), and the banning of Will Shetterly by the 4th Street Fantasy Convention, were the most-read stories here in the month of March.

It wouldn’t be quite fair to say they overshadowed the Hugo announcement, since that just happened yesterday and those comments are still rolling along.

Here are two lists, the complete Top 10, and a second that leaves out the daily roundups — although March 2018 was a rare month when there were just as many news stories in the Top 10 as Scrolls.
