Safe Space Opera

The mighty Jon del Arroz holds forth on the absurd spectacle of people who hate Space Opera talking about Space Opera, and banning a lead Space Opera writer from the conversation. Because he talked about Space Opera.

At one time Tor was the flagship publishing house leading the New Space Opera renaissance. The editor and publisher under whose hand those things were done have passed away, and may they rest in peace.

Whenever a publishing house is more concerned with Social Justice than Science Fiction, its ability to publish Science Fiction, or even to talk about it, is crippled. Social Justice is a jealous goddess and a vain one. She allows no rivals, no equals, no neutral parties. Social Justice demands every conversation be only about Social Justice.
