- It’s the week after Worldcon, so of course there has been discussion about Hugo voting trends, how the awards should be reformed, and what the value of awards is, anyway. And as a result of the Best Editor split, there’s now a wiki of sf editors.
- But this year that’s been somewhat eclipsed by what Harlan Ellison did; David Moles has the essential roundup of who said what. The best posts you might not have seen yet are by Alan DeNiro, Meghan McCarron and Ben Rosenbaum. The most impressive train-wreck of a conversation (aside, presumably, from whatever’s going on at the SFWA forums) is this one at Ed Champion’s place.
- Young Adult literature seems to have caught the blogosphere zeitgeist, too, from the debate at TEV (which turned into a more general debate about the merits of genre) to two posts at SF Signal to David Moles’ request for YA he should read. (Even Instant Fanzine’s latest discussion is about a YA book.)
Next week: all slipstream until the end. Oh yes.
