Given the subpar to horrendous slate of Hugo nominees this year, I thought it would be nice to point out that everyone can vote for the Locus awards - I hope that lots of people will vote and that quality works will win out!

Some facts on the Locus award:
  • You can vote here:  http://www.locusmag.com/Magazine/2015/PollAndSurvey.html
  • Voting is open to everyone (but subscriber votes count double)
  • The voting deadline is April 15 (tax day in the USA)
  • The knowledgeable staff there has assembled a shortlist of recommendations, but you can write in any eligible nominee you like
  • Staff manually reviews the votes and throws out block voting (Yeah - no Sad Puppy slate here)

Just saw this. Since the deadline is tomorrow, I thought I'd bump this up.
Thanks, Engelbrecht.

The nominees have been announced.  All in all, they're a very nice populist list, and a great anodyne to the Hugo mess.

I'll get those posted this evening. It does look like a good batch.
