Having gone back to look for the letter to Locus from John Norman complaining that he wasn't on panels there, I also discovered - rediscovered - the proposal for a special Children's Novel Hugo and such, apparently aimed at making sure that mean Ms. Rowling didn't steal any more real Hugos from hardworking SF authors by writing books millions of people love.
This is why I looked at the YA Hugo from the wrong perspective. Humane questioning will, I believe, eventually lead to a confession that the category is intended to celebrate YA fiction, not isolate it, but I was still stuck on a previous conversation. Good to know.
