Top 10 Posts for September 2018

The Dragon Award winners post normally has a lot of readers anyway, however, when Stephen M. Stirling dropped in to refute some skeptical comments – “As for the Dragon Awards process, it’s transparent if you assume the people running it are telling the truth, which I do because I know and trust several of them” – the debate went into overdrive.

September’s most-read Pixel Scroll was lifted into first place by an item about the reading of Prometheus Award winner Travis Corcoran’s speech at the Libertarian Futurist Society award ceremony at Worldcon 76, which he largely devoted to attacking conventions, editors, and publishing houses where “The sociopaths have pushed the geeks out and have taken over the cultural territory.” Filers had a few things to say bout that subject, too.
