Hugo - short stories - John Scalzi (Night Dragons) 
29th-May-2012 03:16 pm
I'm starting into my Hugo voter packet, so that I can make educated voting choices. My first attempt was something light and fluffy...

"Shadow War of the Night Dragons: Book One: The Dead City: Prologue" by John Scalzi (the hyperlink takes you to the exerpt on tor.com)

This is up for a Hugo Short Story. I can't even get through the free posted exerpt. To quote elyth35, this should be up for a Bulwer-Lytton award, not a Hugo. Though, as Jim Hines pointed out, it must feel a bit odd to Scalzi to have something that was written as an April Fool's joke be nominated in the first place.

The excerpt is the entirety of the story, FWIW. That's the "joke."

I didn't like it either.
