A dinosaur gay anal sex book is in the running for a prestigious science fiction award, but why?
Chuck Tingle, the erotic fiction novella writer behind such classics as ‘My Billionaire Triceratops Craves Gay Ass’, ‘Pounded In The Butt By Own Butt’ and ‘Happy Birthday Frankenstein, Now Pound My Butt’, is a finalist for a Hugo award.
He is nominated for his short story, ‘Space Raptor Butt Invasion’.
The Sad Puppies and Rapid Puppies movements, separate but similar conservative anti-‘social justice warrior groups’, have campaigned to get many of their preferred nominations on the final ballot.
Since 2013, the Sad Puppies has posted recommendations of works to combat the Hugo tendency to reward works that writer Brad Torgersen deemed ‘niche, academic, overtly to the left in ideology and flavor, and ultimately lacking what might best be called visceral, gut-level, swashbuckling fun’.
Supporters are encouraged to buy memberships to the annual World Science Fiction Convention, according to The Guardian, which enables them to nominate works chosen by the campaign and vote on the final selection for the Hugo awards.
The Sad Puppies and Rapid Puppies also managed to get My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic: The Cutie Map Parts 1 and 2′ on the shortlist for Best Dramatic Presentation (Short Form).
But Tingle is not taking it that seriously.
To celebrate, he penned a new novella.
