Larry Correia, creator of the ”Sad Puppies” campaign to get his novel nominated for a Hugo, urged those buying Loncon 3 memberships in order to nominate Warbound to consider filling in the rest of their ballots with his slate of 11 other recommendations.
How did that pay off this year? When the Hugo nominees were released today we saw that, counting his own book, Correia scored 7 hits out of 12 on his list. I have placed asterisks beside them.
