Updated 2015 Hugo Nominations - With Links to Free Fiction

The 2015 Hugo Nominees list is now slightly updated. A couple of the previous block vote nominees were ruled ineligible, and a couple were evaluated for eligibility and allowed to stand. One of the Best Professional Artist nominees was found ineligible; the replacement nominee came from the Rabid Puppies block vote slate. One of the Best Novelette nominees was found ineligible; the replacement was not from either block vote slate.

With this updated ballot, 67% of the ballot is now claimed by the Rabid Puppies block vote slate. 85% of the written fiction ballot was claimed by the Rabid Puppies block vote (and now "only" 20% of the written fiction nominees are this guy).

I'm adding links to free versions of these nominees' works as I find them. Please comment if you find others, and I'll add them! Thanks.
