Sad Squiddies FAQ


Politics. Fun.

These two forces, like the tectonic crap happening beneath our feet, have been at odds since Adam and Eve slayed all those cavemen and rode their dinosaurs into the glowing thermonuclear sunset. Politics and fun do not even freaking shake hands.

We believe speculative fiction is all about fun, so were were pretty cheesed on behalf of all puppydom to hear about how the "Sad Puppies" and "Rabid Puppies" factions took a big stinking dump on the Hugo Awards and didn't even bother to pick it up off our lawn.

The Sad Squiddies is our humble effort to honor the Hugos... okay, okay, it's our effort to enjoy a chuckle at the expense of everyone else. Enjoy!

Note: Both the quiz and the choose-your-own adventure appear in Space Squid #12, but in a different format. The CYOA is especially different in the web format; in the print issue, it has no illustrations and appears as marginalia. The reader chooses her path by turning to the appropriate page, of course.
