Elizabeth Sandifer created Eruditorum Press. She’s not really sure why she did that, and she apologizes for the inconvenience. She currently writes Last War in Albion, a history of the magical war between Alan Moore and Grant Morrison. She used to write TARDIS Eruditorum, a history of Britain told through the lens of a ropey sci-fi series. She also wrote Neoreaction a Basilisk, writes comics these days, and has ADHD so will probably just randomly write some other shit sooner or later.Support Elizabeth on Patreon.

    Hey Phil, there is more about Vox Day on the Guardian today. I think u might find it funny though because its about chuck tingle and how how Vox’s silly behaviour may be backfireing!

    Fandom is perhaps a little too used to being nice, cautious, fair-minded, and not wanting to exclude anybody. In the face of open warfare, this good-natured attitude becomes a terrific liability – this may sound like a weird comparison, but it’s not completely unlike the way harassers know about and take advantage of the way women are trained to be polite. It’s only natural that fans are hesitant about voting stuff that can be tricky to understand, but I can’t help but feel that after two years it’s become timidity instead of caution. At the very least, VD and anything he publishes should be banned from the ballot – but I prefer your option of outright killing slate ballots, which surely could be done mostly by computer. (I wonder if it would also help to publish – anonymised, of course – all the ballots received once the award is out, to allay fears that the admins have incorrectly identified slate ballots.)

      Why anonymize it? Surely the threat of being publicly shamed would make for an effective deterrent. Or, better yet, if one is identified as a “slater,” one is banned from further Hugo activity.

        Oh, I meant publish all of the ballots, so interested parties could see for themselves that the organisers had done the right thing. (I can see how this might have a chilling effect on voting, however, even anonymised.)

    Yup it’s all a bit illy in a way the door effectively being left open for folk such as VD to easily take over the Hugos – and I agree with you Kate about the “good-natured attitude” which creates the open door policy for this kind of nonsense. No slates would be a good idea.

    When fascists try to join your club, you don’t take their money and you don’t let them, easy.
