The Nature of the Andromeda Realm is Abstract and Fluid

Posted January 20, 2015 By John C Wright

I was looking for the correct demonym for Andromeda. (Is it Andromedan or Andromedean or Andromedian? Andromedahin? Andromedaneese? Andromedine? Andromedaoi? Andromedishman?) So I typed in the word Andromedan, and I found this:

On the Moral Retardation and the Islamophobic Backlash

Posted January 10, 2015 By John C Wright

Earlier in this space we were visited by two anti-Christian anti-civilization bigots and morally retarded persons who used the opportunity of the mass murders of French satirists by Jihadists to express their delight and love for all things anti-Christian and barbaric. I use the phrase ‘morally retarded’ extensively here, so allow me to explain what […]

Klavan: The Debate is Over

Posted January 9, 2015 By John C Wright

A reader has informed me that, since Fox News is not reliable, the ‘no-go’ zones in France simply do not exist, that is, the banlieues or suburbs where Muslim immigrants in France have menaced and deterred police and fire services to the point where the writ of the Republic no longer runs — these are […]

Take it from a Newspaperman

Posted January 3, 2015 By John C Wright

I just wanted to share with my readers the benefit of my years of experience in the newspaper business. The press lies. They lie their hindquarters off, and lie, and lie and lie. Sometimes the lie when it costs them money and readership. The lie even when they lose advertisement. They lie like Baghdad Bob […]

Some say that ever ‘gainst that season comes Wherein our Saviour’s birth is celebrated, The bird of dawning singeth all night long: And then, they say, no spirit dare stir abroad; The nights are wholesome; then no planets strike, No fairy takes, no witch has power to charm, So hallow’d and gracious is the time.

Release the Correia!

Posted December 11, 2014 By John C Wright

Another must-read too-good-to-miss fisking and public flogging by Larry Correia against the forces of darkness, or, at least, the forces of nagging nattering nonsense about nothing. http://monsterhunternation.com/2014/12/10/fisking-the-guardian-again-this-time-for-hp-lovecraft/ As usual the original article is in italics and my responding comments are in bold. Move over HP Lovecraft, fantasy writers of colour are coming through. A stupid […]

If I wrote this in a parody SFF story, no editor would buy it. It is too far beyond belief. Feminists: We need to fight negative stereotypes like women caring more about fashion than science. Comet? What comet? EEEK! LOOK AT THAT SHIRT!! Some big, strong man, HAAALP! Protect me from seeing that shirt. Eek! […]

Gamer Credentials

Posted October 24, 2014 By John C Wright

In the interests of full disclosure regards the Gamergate scandals, I should mention that the only games I have ever played are, obsessively, the long lost and dolorously lamented City of Heroes; I played DC Universe Online briefly, as an insufficient rebound-substitute for City of Heroes when it folded; Doom and its sequels, and, very […]

Curse of the Fifty Worlds!

Posted October 3, 2014 By John C Wright

You may have heard the wondrous news that Pluto is once again a planet, eight years after being relegated to the status of dwarf planet by the International Astronomical Union (IAU). Plutonians, Rejoice! I commanded the initiation of a worldwide nine-year long feast, festival, festivity and celebration, culminating in the ritual trampling of Tokyo by Godzilla and […]
