If I had a cat, it would know what to do with Mr. Beale's leavings.

Yes, it's horribly unjust when (women) scientists win science fiction awards! Yes, I am an Asaro fan, but The Quantum Rose wasn't one of my favorites by her, although I think a lot of people criticizing it haven't read it. Also, I believe the author of the diatribe is incorrect, I don't think Asaro was President of the SFWA when The Quantum Rose won the Nebula. And while Asaro may not have won another Nebula for best novel, she has won a Nebula for novella (also in a year when she was not President of SFWA). Asaro was responsible during her tenure as SFWA President for establishing the Andre Norton Award and for honoring Anne McCaffrey with a Grandmaster Award, two things I'm sure further get men like Beale's ire up. Don't even get me started on his whinging about Walton's Among Others, which not only won the Nebula, but also won the Hugo. While McIntyre's The Moon and the Sun only won the Nebula, another book of hers won both the Nebula and the Hugo.
