Laura J. Mixon Hugo Nominee Fanwriter Sample

Laura Mixon's fanwriting sample is, quite logically, her thorough, documented exposure of the rage blogger Requires Hate/Benjanun Sriduangkaew.

This is a clear, well-supported explanation of Requires Hate's multiple online identities, cyberstalking, and harassment, as well as her habitual deletion of hateful posts after the fact, making it hard for her victims to prove what happened to them. Mixon has included only episodes that she can document, and includes screen caps. Names are included only with the agreement of the individual. This was a major service to the sf community, and it's well-written.

Recommended.
