Wisdom from my Internet is a really bad book. I will admit that I disagree with about 90% of Williamson's political statements; but even in the few cases where I don't, his style is just not very funny. More objectively, I've got a quarter of the way through and if there has been any actual reference to SF I have missed it. I prefer my Best Related Works to actually be, well, related. I don't think I will bother with the rest.
How interesting that the author is a mate of the slatemongers, and that it was not recommended by a single contributor to the crowdsourcing exercise (which we are repeatedly told was "100% open" and "democratic"), yet ended up on both slates anyway! It has reinforced my intention to vote "No Award" for this entire category.
This nomination really shows up the bad faith of those behind the slates. For all their complaints about cliques, political messages and works getting nominated which are of poor quality and are't sfnal enough, here they have done exactly what they accuse the imaginary cabal of doing. It is simply shameful.
