The 2016 #HugoAwards: How (some more) bloggers are voting

An update to my previous post, surveying the 2016 Hugo votes in viction categories published by bloggers. I think that one of the categories has a very clear winner. It's also clear that there is a serious Rabid Puppy attempt to generate a block vote, with two other bloggers (and who knows how many others) following the lead set by Vox Day (whose post I missed in my previous roundup).

Best Short Story

"Cat Pictures Please" has extended its lead, with literally twice as many votes as the rest combined.

“Cat Pictures Please” by Naomi Kritzer: 19½ Sue Burke, Didi Chanoch, Mark Ciocco, Jonathan Edelstein, Peter Enyeart, Camestros Felapton, Andrew Hickey, Rich Horton, JL Jamieson, Rachel Neumeier, ½Kate Paulk, Doctor Science, Joe Sherry, John Snead, The Weasel King, Marco Zennaro, Lise Andreasen, Charon Dunn, Ethan Mills, Aaron Pound
No Award: 6 Bonnie McDaniel, Timo Pietilä, Solitair, Nicholas Whyte, Lori Ramey, Christina Vasilevski
Space Raptor Butt Invasion by Chuck Tingle: 3 John C. Wright, Vox Day, Didact
“Asymmetrical Warfare” by S. R. Algernon: 1 Doris Sutherland
“Seven Kill Tiger” by Charles Shao: ½ ½Kate Paulk
“If You Were an Award, My Love” by Juan Tabo and S. Harris: 0

Best Novelette

"Obits" has overtaken "And You Shall Know Her by the Trail of Dead" for second place, partly due to the Puppy vote.

“Folding Beijing” by Hao Jingfang, trans. Ken Liu: 14½ Liz Barr, ½Sue Burke, Jonathan Edelstein, Camestros Felapton, Rich Horton, Timo Pietilä, Doctor Science, John Snead, Solitair, Doris Sutherland, Nicholas Whyte, Lise Andreasen, Liz Barr, Ethan Mills
“Obits” by Stephen King: 8 Mark Ciocco, Kate Paulk, Joe Sherry, John C. Wright, Vox Day, Didact, Charon Dunn, Lori Ramey
“And You Shall Know Her by the Trail of Dead” by Brooke Bolander: 7½ ½Sue Burke, Didi Chanoch, Peter Enyeart, Bonnie McDaniel, Rachel Neumeier, Steph Bianchini, Christina Vasilevski, Marc Zennaro
No Award: 1 Andrew Hickey
“Flashpoint: Titan” by Cheah Kai Wai: 0
“What Price Humanity?” by David VanDyke: 0

Best Novella

Binti has extended its lead as well, but Penric's Demon has a good second place (with Puppy help).

Binti by Nnedi Okorafor: 15 Didi Chanoch, Camestros Felapton, Chris Gerrib, JL Jamieson, Bonnie McDaniel, Doctor Science, Joe Sherry, John Snead, Solitair, Marco Zennaro, Charon Dunn, Ethan Mills, Lori Ramey, Doris Sutherland, Christina Vasilevski
Penric’s Demon by Lois McMaster Bujold: 8 Jonathan Edelstein, Rich Horton, Rachel Neumeier, Nicholas Whyte, John C. Wright, Mark Ciocco, Vox Day, Didact
Perfect State by Brandon Sanderson: 4 Peter Enyeart, Timo Pietilä, David Steffen, Lise Andreasen
Slow Bullets by Alastair Reynolds: 2 Sue Burke, Kate Paulk
The Builders by Daniel Polansky: 0

Best Novel

Brandon Kempner predicts that Uprooted will win. It also has Puppy support. However, The Fifth Season has extended its lead in my survey. Down the table, Seveneves has overtake Ancillary Mercy for third place.

The Fifth Season by N.K. Jemisin: 10⅓ Didi Chanoch, Jonathan Edelstein, Camestros Felapton, Daniel Goldsmith, Bonnie McDaniel, Joe Sherry, Marco Zennaro, Eric Franklin, Ethan Mills, Lori Ramey, Doris Sutherland, Christina Vasilevski
Uprooted by Naomi Novik: 6⅓ Didi Chanoch, Roger McCray, John Snead, John C. Wright, Vox Day, Didact, Kate Paulk
Seveneves by Neal Stephenson: 4 Chris Gerrib, Rachel Neumeier, Mark Ciocco, Charon Dunn
Ancillary Mercy by Ann Leckie: 3⅓ Didi Chanoch, The Weasel King, Nicholas Whyte, Peter Enyeart
The Cinder Spires: The Aeronaut’s Windlass by Jim Butcher: 0

Unfortunately I'll be on the road from Thursday to Sunday next week, so I probably won't be able to post my usual instant analysis of Hugo and Retro-Hugo results. Y'all have fun with out me, you hear?
