Tor and the Volunteer Thought Police Department

Posted June 24, 2015 By John C Wright

As noted before, a conflict of interest requires I recuse myself from expressing either support or opposition to the boycott of Tor, my publisher, urged on by my readers. Obviously I would prefer to retain the goodwill of both. Also obviously, I would prefer the matter be solved in a civil and professional fashion. To […]

The Three Laws of Morlocktics

Posted June 22, 2015 By John C Wright

Below is a comment I simply had to share: 39. Jack Aubrey They are as predictable as Asimov’s robots, whose three laws were programmed into them. 1. An SJW may not tell the Truth or, through inaction, allow the Truth to be told. 2. An SJW must obey orders given it by the Hive Mind, […]

Libertarian SF versus Establishment SF

Posted June 19, 2015 By John C Wright

The science fiction stories promoted by the establishment authors, libraries, schools and lit-critics has become so dreary, smug, self-righteous and politically correct as to be unreadable, save by those seeking a political commentary, not a space princess. If the establishment were content to kept its moist hands to itself, and write books to its taste […]

Posted June 11, 2015 By John C Wright

Here is a transcript of am unexpectedly polite mutual interview between my publisher Mr Beale, whom the Elves name Vox Day, and the orcs of the Dull-Eyed Land call Morgothrond the Voxinator, and a satanist named Mr Sandifer. They each agreed to discuss one book the other finds terrible. I am curious whether anyone aside […]

The Customer is Always Right

Posted May 21, 2015 By John C Wright

It would be untoward for me to comment on the mental processes of any readers disappointed in my humble work. If I fail to please, the fault is mine, not theirs. Nonetheless, from time to time the causes for discontent are worthy of note. For example, in the novella ‘One Bright Star to Guide Them’ […]

Posted May 20, 2015 By John C Wright

A balanced view and trenchant insight in a column from an interested onlooker to the ongoing world-shattering Holy War and  foodfight-in-a-phonebooth between the subterranean Morlocks and the lachrymose Sad Puppies http://www.contrapositivediary.com/?p=3402 Some of the more interesting observations from Mr Duntemann are in his comments below the column. SP authors have nothing to lose in the […]

NR on SP

Posted May 18, 2015 By John C Wright

I am too cheap to spend the quarter it costs to read the article. From the opening paragraph, this writer sounds like he did his homework, however, and might produce something fair and balanced: https://www.nationalreview.com/nrd/articles/417713/sci-fis-sad-puppies It turns out that pop culture doesn’t inexorably drift toward political correctness. The forces of “social justice” are not invincible, […]
