An Open Letter to Mr Hines

Posted December 31, 2014 By John C Wright

Mr Jim Hines takes exception to the grave insult done to all fans of LEGEND OF KORRA by asserting, first, that I am the only one dismayed and dissatisfied by the bad writing, cheap ending, lame out-of-nowhere romance between two female characters (neither of who previously was homosexual) being shoehorned into the last scene in […]

The Feast of the Immaculate Conception is Today

Posted December 8, 2014 By John C Wright

So remember to go to Mass!

Interview with a Sci Fi Writer

Posted November 25, 2014 By John C Wright

This was part of a project a student, and a fellow fan of the long lost and lamented City of Heroes, did for his class. He asked me to help him, and I was glad to oblige. I assume the questions were standardized for honest professions, and so the answers for Writing, which is a […]

Posted November 14, 2014 By John C Wright
