Posted February 1, 2016 By John C Wright

George RR Martin remembers David Hartwell:  http://grrm.livejournal.com/468266.html My comment: Mr. Martin’s words were moving to me, and I wrote him the note below. Mr. Hartwell launched and sustained my career with the same unselfishness and goodheartedness you here describe. Under very trying circumstances, for example, his work allowed me to write NULL-A CONTINUUM, which, like […]

Dialog with Amazing Stories

Posted January 16, 2016 By John C Wright

Forgive the length of this post. I wanted to present to my readers the situations of the ongoing peace negotiations between me, as the Grand Inquisitor of the Evil League of Evil, and a puppy kicker whose name I happen not to recognize. He is the editor of Amazing Stories, and, at the time of […]

Posted January 16, 2016 By John C Wright

So far in my career, six to eight readers, perhaps ten, have arranged to give me a tip or emolument at regular, repeating intervals, such as fifteen dollars a month. In each case, the payments have not gone through. Paypal won’t send the money, but will sent a note telling me they won’t. We’ve contracted […]

Beyond the Mist by Ben Zwycky

Posted January 4, 2016 By John C Wright

I just had the privilege of reading Ben Zwycky’s new book BEYOND THE MIST, which I must say kept me guessing even up until the last scene. Since I am an old and cynical reader, that is not easy to do. I liked the science fiction with a slight garnish of philosophical speculation thrown in. […]
