Best Series is pretty gruesome. Only Bujold’s Vorkosigan Saga is one that is worthy of any note. Best Novel is even worse; as expected, Jemisin should be the odds-on favorite to win her second straight Best Novel Award. That is arguably a bigger joke than “Alien Stripper Boned From Behind By the T-Rex”, which is why it behooves us to wholeheartedly support The Obilisk Gate.
