The Iron-Toed Workboot of Truth

Posted September 14, 2016 By John C Wright

Yet again, Larry Correia, man among men, drives the iron-toed workboot of truth into the drooping groin of political correctness. Angels and archangels with wings of flame, crowned in circling constellations, pause in their invisible business and watch in silent awe. In this case, the Correia has been unleashed by the gods of war against the […]

Superversive: Puppy Pictures, Please

Posted September 13, 2016 By John C Wright

The beautiful and talented Mrs. Wright has written a column attempting to explain the obvious to the oblivious: The Bifrost Between Calico and Gingham I have been asked what the Puppies—Sad and Rabid alike—are objecting to? If they are not racist or homophobes—ie, if it is not the author’s identity that they object to—why do they […]

Flight 93 Election by Publius

Posted September 12, 2016 By John C Wright

From the Claremont Review. If you are lukewarm on Trump, or opposed to him, this column is required reading, and may be the most important thing you read this year. I reproduce the whole thing.

Tolkien and Martin

Posted September 9, 2016 By John C Wright

  Hattip to Daddy Warpig for finding this comment, which is by The Don Show and left on a parody rap contest on EPB between Martin and Tolkien found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XAAp_luluo0&ab_channel=ERB I post the comment not to mock nor to praise, but merely to warn readers not to assume a direct correlation between an author’s experiences and […]

Arhyelon: The Prude and the Trollop

Posted September 5, 2016 By John C Wright

From the pen of my lovely and talented wife. http://www.ljagilamplighter.com/2016/09/05/the-prude-and-the-trollop/ Occasionally, I come upon a review (there has been more than one) of The Unexpected Enlightenment of Rachel Griffin where the reader threw the book across the room and stopped reading at the scene in chapter Four where crazy orphan boy Siegfried Smith encounters a young woman deliberately […]

It is Darker Than You Think

Posted August 20, 2016 By John C Wright

Dave Truesdale, the editor of Tangent Online, was asked to moderate a panel on the state of short science fiction at MidAmericaCon II. He took the opportunity to introduce the topic of how political correctness is destroying the market, a topic that is no more controversial that talking about the hot weather in August. He […]

Young Mrs. Wright and her Legalistic Atheist Friend

Posted August 17, 2016 By John C Wright

A controversial post this week from the lovely and talented Mrs Wright. She asks when is it right and proper to murder grandma? http://www.ljagilamplighter.com/2016/08/16/when-can-we-murder-grandma/. She was Miss Lamplighter at the time when the events described took place. I wonder who the friend was with whom she was secretly in love. Many years ago, I was […]

Larry!

He says what needs saying. Take heed: http://monsterhunternation.com/2016/08/08/fisking-the-latest-diversity-in-sci-fi-freak-out/   Editors, understand your target market, then buy stories you think your audience will like enough so they will continue to give you money for them. Authors, write the best stories you can and try to sell them. Be professional. Keep improving. Repeat.   My comment: imagine […]

For Appendix N Fans

Posted August 1, 2016 By John C Wright

As regular readers may recall, I am something of the fan of the books and authors listed in Appendix N of Gary Gygax’s Appendix to the old rulebook for Dungeons and Dragons. You may also recall that Jeffro Johnson did a series of articles about the Appendix N books, and wrote with such verve and […]

From the pen of John Lott

Posted June 24, 2016 By John C Wright

John R. Lott, author of MORE GUNS LESS CRIME, holds forth on the unwisdom of so called Gun-free zones. They are, of course, Self-Defense-free zones, herds of prey were there are no bulls with sharp, scary horns to defend the cows and calves. These shooters are crazy, but not stupid. Even dumb beasts know to […]
