Arguing that fan Hugos ought to be voted to fans, I started a homemade kerfuffle that drew even more attention than Jonathan Ross’ brief reign as Loncon 3’s Hugo ceremony MC. Now that I know the idea is so controversial I’m glad I brought it up before the nominating deadline.
March wasn’t all feudin’ and fightin’ – we had our share of fun, too. File 770 ran two Bradbury trivia quizzes – “Up Among the Stars” and the self-satirizing “Tough Trivia Quiz.” (Not that controversy-seekers didn’t get their money’s worth — we discovered the Wikipedia misidentified its supposed photo of the Hollywood Brown Derby.)
