Here's another interesting nugget of information which was unearthed while I was making my way down the Baltic States. You all know that SFF Awards are not always seen in the most positive of light. Well, this one, this time from the Locus Awards, will not help matters much, at least where SFF fans are concerned.
After all the votes were submitted and the poll closed, Locus announced a rule change that will see a subscriber's votes count for twice the value of the votes submitted by non-subscribers (the majority of voters).
You can find all the pertinent information in Ken's post, as well as various links and discussion in this thread on Westeros.
More and more, I get the feeling that SFF Awards show as much integrity and transparence as international boxing federations. As a huge fan of the sport, let me just say that you do not want to be compared to the WBC (World Boxing Council), or the WBA (World Boxing Association). Come to think of it, the IBF (International Boxing Federation) and the WBO (World Boxing Organization) are not much better. . .
