Follow-Up

As I mentioned here a couple of days ago, Jeannette Ng took the occasion of winning the John W. Campbell Award to remind fandom of a few home truths about the award’s eponymous figure. Hilarity, or something, ensued. Mike Glyer, at File 770, has done his usual thorough job of reporting the kerfuffle, from the reasoned responses of John Scalzi and Cory Doctorow to Arvid Engholm’s curious theory that Ms. Ng violated the Codes of Conduct by molesting a ghost.
