Vox Day is a racist, a petulant man-child, and a terrible writer. #HugoAwards #SadPuppies
To be perfectly clear, Vox Day is a racist, a petulant man-child, and a terrible writer who only garners attention by gaming the system. This is, however, a great example of the kind of people who think awards are worth putting more effort into figuring out how to get one rather than writing a decent story. As pathetic as it is to seek that sort of external self-validation, what they are trying to validate is even more wretched. People like this remind me of the Kevin Kline character in a Fish Called Wanda; they’re so convinced of their own genius they can’t be bothered to notice how stupid they are.
