1. "How did 'Space Raptor Butt Invasion' by Chuck Tingle become a Hugo finalist?"

Pseudonymous erotica author Tingle, who is also responsible for titles such as "Taken by the Gay Unicorn Biker," responded quickly to the Hugo news with a new e-book, "Slammed in the Butt by My Hugo Award Nomination."
