Today I asked two questions: what does "poggers" mean, and what did GRRM do that has everyone I know who cares about Worldcon pissed off?
I feel I can sum up what I learnt with "GRRM's tostmastering of the Hugos was totally unpoggers."
@anthracite Speaking as an early millennial: Well said.
Double plus unpog.
He basically spent the entire time talking about himself, how Campbell was good, and mispronouncing names.
@anthracite wait what did he say
If unpoggers means lithobraking, then yes.
@anthracite GRRM, the writer who redefined fantasy as a genre you might read to enjoy. A reaction to Tolkienesque potboilers and yet completely without the flamboyant multidimensional weirdness that characterized Moorcock’s reaction.
