In today’s episode of SUPERLUMINARY, the well-born billionaire with no experience at politics assumes the imperial throne, and, immediately after, mindlessly feral undead enemies arise in countless hosts, and the entire solar system is destroyed. No, this is a coincidence. It is not a comment one way or the other or any political events which […]

Who Runs America and How

Posted November 1, 2016 By John C Wright

I am sorry to hear that Damien Walter, the original Morlock for whom all Morlocks are named, had apparently lost his post at the Guardian earlier this year. (The Guardian is the branch of Pravda newspaper operating in Anglostan, a Muslim nation once known as England, except with policy of less adherence to truth in […]

Stellar Comment from Reddit

Posted October 29, 2016 By John C Wright

One begins to feel a proprietary interest in stars and heavenly bodies one puts in one’s books. To me, for example, Iota Draconis has a very special place in my heart, because I did research on it, and set a scene there, and likewise for Eta Carinae in the Homounculus Nebula. However, I have never […]

Video Break!

Posted September 13, 2016 By John C Wright

I was writing a scene that takes place near the supermassive black hole at the core of the Milky Way, and typed a search term into Google to find any true but fascinating astronomical tidbits I might be able to use. Not long ago, I was so flabbergasted by some of the real astronomical wonders […]

From the Pen of Brad Torgersen

Posted September 7, 2016 By John C Wright

Puppy-in-Chief Brad Torgersen asks the musical question: Apparently the Dragon Awards are “bad” or at least invalid, because voters are not charged a fee for participation. Simply anyone can cast a vote. Perhaps (gasp) more than once? Mind you, this charge is leveled by the same camp that screams bloody murder over voter ID laws; for state […]

Writing is a Great Profession

Posted August 25, 2016 By John C Wright

Writing is a great profession! All you have to do is stare at a blank sheet of paper until your eyes bleed, and write a story — compared to lumberjack, ditch-digger, farmhand, truckdriver, mafia hitman, or any honest labor requiring skill and effort, being a bard is the bomb! The muse does all the hard […]

The Morlock Morlocks More

Posted August 21, 2016 By John C Wright

It is a pleasure to be alive during the last days of Social Justice Fandom. These creatures, by and large, are old, sickly and obese, and playing little more than a delaying game against time, hoping that the friendly press will keep the buying public in ignorance, deceived by hoopla, one year more, one month, […]

Somewhither Mini-Review! And Drinking Game!

Posted August 18, 2016 By John C Wright

Behold! Here is a guest review, from our own Mr. Davidson, of my reward-not-yet-winning book SOMEWHITHER, ripped from the comments boxes of this very website! His opinion unfolded as we were discussing the new SOMEWHITHER drinking game (called Six Degrees from Captain Kirk–I am not sure how the drinking fits in) where the reader takes a […]

Here are some photos from Dragoncon, home of the Dragon Award for Excellence in Science Fiction. It is an award based on fan votes. My book SOMEWITHER is up for an award this years, and I am soliciting your vote. If you are unable to read the book in time to vote, I will read […]
