Philbin licks his dick

Philbin has shown up again at Shocklines. With Philcon approaching in November, Philbin is attempting to cozy up to people in an attempt to persuade them to nominate him for a Philip K. Dick Award. Previously in Dagstine’s forum, now vanished, at Horrorworld, Dagstine and Philbin were both going on and on about both the Hugo Awards and the Philip K. Dick Awards. Both awards are among the most prestigious in speculative fiction. Daggy wanted a fan Hugo and Philbin wanted a Philip K. Dick Award. At that time, Daggy mentioned that he intended to try and make it to Philcon.

How Philbin, notorious for writing noxious fiction filled with disgusting imagery, can believe that his work is as good as that of the previous winners and nominees is a study in infantile shit-fetishistic behavior patterns of the entitlement generation.

Insulting and offending the reader will not gain him an award in anything except poo smearing.

Writers are free to write what they wish.  Editors are free to buy what they wish.  AND READERS ARE FREE TO TELL BOTH THE WRITER AND THE EDITOR TO EAT SHIT AND DIE and refuse to give them awards they do not deserve. This especially holds true for fan voted awards.

    The ego has landed and it’s name is Philbin.

    20:1 Daggy doesn’t make it to the con. Is Phleabitten really going?

    I have no idea. It must be somewhat expensive to fly into the US for a convention, even one this important and prestigious.

    Does he lick his own dick, or Dagstines? Does he even have a dick to lick? I’m lost, as usual.

    To get a major award like the Dick Award of the Hugo, I think they need to be published by publishers who are recognised in the industry. Silverthought is not.

    You know how it is with male dogs, Khazar. They spend an inordinate amount of time curled up licking the bone.

    Johaha, I did notice a few small to midling publishers on the Philip K. Dick list, but they all had a great deal of cachet in the community. That is something that Silverthought will never have. It requires a level of visibility that Silverthought has yet to achieve and is based upon the overall quality of the work they bring out.

    The larger fandom is not impressed by the use of ejaculation as a prolonged metaphor. They tend to be far better read and more widely read than an undernoticed messageboard called Shocklines.

    The boards frequented by the type of fans who would be in a position to vote for either a Dick or a Hugo usually have a google ranking of 7. Shocklines has a google ranking of 2.

    I’ll check on the google ranking at Silverthought, but I suspect it is not above a 3.
