Top 10 Stories for May 2023

Interest in the latest Nebula Award winners surpassed everything else on File 770 in May.

The topical anxiety over AI art generators drew readers to last month’s second leading story. The discovery that the latest Self-Published Fantasy Blog-Off cover contest winner was produced using AI in violation of the rules was a shock, and came only after others showed why the cover artist’s evidence that he had done it himself could not be believed.

  1. SFWA Announces the 58th Nebula Awards Winners

  1. Kinda glad I didn’t see the Basedcon one until now when it would be pointless to comment on some things said there. I don’t usually consider it a good thing to have missed a whole week’s worth of posts, as I did around then, but this time it was a small favour.

    (For the record, I am happy they have their own con, and I wish them success off where they are.)
