if you're more interested in the current fannish fail than I am

Start here:

The Daily Dot - Jonathan Ross withdraws from the Hugos after online uproar

The Observer Profile: Jonathan Ross

I didn't go any further, but if there are especially entertaining posts about this, let me know.

Yes, the Daily Dot article is Aja Romano's. I think she wants to be fandom's Walter Winchell.

ETA: No, don't read Aja Romano's. Read this: When Jonathan Ross Was Presenting The Hugo Awards. Until He Wasn't. - Bleeding Cool Comic Book, Movies and TV News and Rumors.

  1. Jonathan Ross has had some controversies (hey, who hasn't?) but he's hardly seem evil bigoted figure who should be shunned. He's a very mainstream TV personality.

    The idea that SF/Fantasy is not "inclusive" enough is odd. Ursula Le Guin? Chip Delany (a 2 for 1 there)? Anne McCaffrey? Robin Hobb? Marion Zimmer Bradley? Everyone respects those people - if you've got the talent you can make it.
