Some loose ends from the Christopher Priest/Clarke Award discussion: John Scalzi posted a couple of followups to his initial post, the latter linking to a comment by Priest (who also put in an appearance at Martin McGrath's post and edited his original remarks to remove the comments about Mark Billingham). Cheryl Morgan considers what the Clarke is for and spotlights Pat Cadigan's letter to the Guardian. Martin Wisse comments on Rule 34 and counters Damien G Walter. Damien Kelly disagrees with Priest's take on awards. Gary K Wolfe and Jonathan Strahan discuss Priest's comments in the latest Coode Street podcast. And Nina Allan changes the subject slightly to think about what her Clarke of Clarkes would look like.
