Coming soon: The Raven, The Elf, and Rachel!

Posted August 28, 2014 By John C Wright

My beautiful and talented wife’s next book is soon to be published. I love, love this cover. One big advantage of the ‘new model’ of Internet publishing versus New York publishing is that authors can hire their own cover artists and describe the painting they want.

Breaking Down Pink and Blue SF

Posted August 26, 2014 By John C Wright

At Castalia House, Daniel applies the definitions of Pink and Blue SF to what are perhaps the best examples of the genre. Both are short stories, and can be read in one sitting. The first is Rachel Swirsky’s Nebula-Award winning and Hugo-nominated short story “If You Were A Dinosaur, My Love” The second is Gene […]

Interview on CITY BEYOND TIME!

Posted August 24, 2014 By John C Wright

The Sci Phi show, a podcast of science fiction and philosophy, unwisely decided to interview me. Listen in horror as the interviewer asks me clear and precise questions to which I respond by unguided stream of consciousness ramblings in disconnected sentence fragments! Future anthropologists will recover only this one file out of the entire auditory […]

The International Lord of Hate v Smugwhiner von Sneer

Posted August 21, 2014 By John C Wright

Larry Correia, man among men, take the time to dismantle the filthy lies and maggoty madness of a subterranean dwarf, or Nibelung, named A. A. George, who, on behalf of my publisher Tor, and in the name of Tor, accuses all gamers in general and GenCon in particular of being racists. Mr Correia in hiphigh […]

Prayer as a Deadly Weapon

Posted August 21, 2014 By John C Wright

I am mentioned in a rather flattering connection by the first ever podcast of the 1P5 podcast. But the rest of the meditation by Mr Steve Skojec is so well worth hearing, that I will overcome my natural modesty to link to his podcast. It is well worth hearing. https://soundcloud.com/onepeterfive/1p5-podcast-e01#t=26:55 or here it is from […]

The Wright Perspective: Arguments for Everything and Nothing

Posted August 21, 2014 By John C Wright

My latest is up at Every Joe. http://www.everyjoe.com/2014/08/20/politics/existence-of-god-rational-arguments/ So why do Progressives pretend there are no rational arguments for the existence of God? The various arguments in favor of the existence of God and the truth of Christ do not find favor among secular, that is, antichristian philosophers of this generation. However, such arguments are […]

The Wright Perspective: Anti-Ideas and Newspeak

Posted August 13, 2014 By John C Wright

My latest is up at Every Joe: http://www.everyjoe.com/2014/08/13/politics/leftist-anti-ideas-newspeak/ The previous columns have proposed that civilization believes in truth, virtue, beauty, reason and romance, in liberty and salvation, whereas the Morlocks destroying civilization say that opinions are arbitrary, values are personal, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, reason is untrustworthy, and monogamy is oppression […]

On Reparations for Historic, Collective Wrongs

Posted August 12, 2014 By John C Wright

From the Pen of Michael Z Williamson, genius. Remind me to read his SF books after buying them in hardback.   Dear United Nations: I note with approval that there’s a bill before the US Congress to compensate African Americans for their mistreatment in the past. However, I was talking to a Russian Jewish friend […]

Fake Roots

Posted August 11, 2014 By John C Wright

Story in the New York Post opens with this lede: ON Friday, NBC will air a special commemorating the 25th anniversary of the landmark miniseries based on Alex Haley’s book “Roots.” Ironically, the original series aired on ABC – but officials at that network took a pass on broadcasting the tribute. What’s truly amazing, however, […]

Quotha: Argumentum ad Awesomesauce

Posted August 8, 2014 By John C Wright

Guillermo del Toro gave us Idris Elba rocket punching Godzillas with a giant Voltron. Your argument is invalid. Today’s quote. The italics is NPR (National Panhandler Radio) preaching racism and racebaiting and nodarnfun-for-noone. The bold print is from the bold Larry Correia, author of HARD MAGIC and MONSTER HUNTER INTERNATIONAL, as well as being a […]
