Here's what I want from the Hugo Awards:

  • A lively discussion before nominations which provides lots of lists of good books to read

  • A lively discussion of the finalists, hopefully providing a shorter list of really good books, along with a bunch of recommendations along the lines of "this didn't get nominated, but it is sooooooo good..."

  • An award in each of several categories that I can reasonably say "Yup, I can see how people thought this was the best novel/novella/short story/short video/movie/related/fan/Locus/thing of the year, even though I didn't think it was as good as Tales of the Space Gazette."

  • Or, alternatively, "Yay! Space Gazetteers forever!"

The Sad Puppies/Rabid Puppies have done absolutely nothing that advance those things that I want, and have, metaphorically, taken a dump in the punchbowl.
