Hugo Voting Deadline is Tonight

The deadline for your Hugo ballots is tonight at midnight, Pacific Daylight Time -- just about 18 hours away as I type this.

It's too late for mail delivery, but you can still vote online if you're a member of LA Con IV. Please do so; I don't want to hear any complaining about the results by people who didn't vote this year.

Oh c'mon. Complaining about the results is traditional. And people will always be able to complain that they couldn't afford to vote.

If there is a type of complaining I'd like to see an end to it is complaints that the results are "wrong" on technical grounds made by people who haven't bothered to read the rules. If George Martin wins The Big One I expect a flood of posts pointing out that the Hugos are "only for science fiction" and demanding that the "Hugo Jury" amend the results.

I don't mind people who couldn't vote complaining -- well, maybe I do, a little bit, but not as much as those whiners who go to Worldcon, neglect to vote, and then cry in their beer that the things they like didn't win. Those people need to be chased down and pummeled with a Hugo rocket until they cry "uncle."
