Panel discussion on the Hugo-nominated novels. Quality? Which one deserves to win and why? The nominations this year have been intensely discussed since two groups calling themselves the Sad Puppies and the Rabid Puppies have succeeded in obtaining many nominations by telling people to nominate from a prepared list. The panel will discuss all the nominated novels and also which novels they think would have been nominated without this procedure. How might “Puppygate” change the future of the Hugo award?
This panel was recorded at Swecon 2015 – Confuse in Linköping – Sweden.
Participants: Marianna Leikomaa (mod), Jukka Halme, Kjartan Lindøe, Flemming Rasch, Tommy Persson
