Tor Editor Libels Tor Author

Posted March 31, 2015 By John C Wright

If my accustomed Vulcan calm could be perturbed, no doubt it would be by the allegations Teresa Nielsen-Hayden late of Tor books is leveling against myself and the other members of the Evil Legion of Evil Authors. But since I am imperturbable, I merely raise one eyebrow and wonder on what evidence, or one what chain […]

You never hear her name any more, even though you hear Uhura all the time. But no one ever mentions Nurse Chapel, but I loved Nurse Chapel as a girl. Because she loved […]

If you were curious about my voice, or what my basement looks like, or why my video account uses a pokemon icon, all these mysteries can be deepened by listening to this podcast by Geek Gab, where I talk over people, refuse to answer questions, and make many remarks so odd that a team of […]

The eternal war between Vesta and the Muses: http://www.ljagilamplighter.com/2015/02/25/superversive-blog-the-needs-of-drama-vs-the-needs-of-culture/ My beautiful and talented wife pens a column which identifies a clear and simple idea absolutely crucial to be understood before any discussion of the merit of a work begin: It takes a superb writer to make the process of painting a landscape interesting to an […]

Posted February 26, 2015 By John C Wright

David Warren on Hobbes and Hobbits

Posted February 24, 2015 By John C Wright

This is your must read column for this month, dear reader. It is a meditation on the rights and duties of sovereign power, including Shakespeare’s and Tolkien’s refreshingly Mediaeval take on the issue: http://www.davidwarrenonline.com/2015/02/23/on-legitimate-government/ The idea of the autonomous “prince” is modern.
