One Bright Star’s Forgotten Forebearers

Posted May 6, 2017 By John C Wright

Doris Sutherland has a surprisingly balanced and fair description of the events surrounding the Sad Puppies kerfuffle and the Hugo award, followed by several articles where she reviews all the nominees in the categories. http://womenwriteaboutcomics.com/2016/02/03/2014-hugos-versus-2015-sad-puppies-novellas/ Since my readers did me the honor of nominating a historically high number of my works into the categories, there […]

Signal Boost for John Del Arroz

Posted February 11, 2017 By John C Wright

Jon Del Arroz is a Christian conservative author who has recently come under fire from the hard-left big publishing establishment in science fiction. You can read the gory details here, but basically what happened is his neurotic publisher fired him for wearing a Trump MAGA hat in the privacy of his own home. He was […]

Those Whom the Gods Destroy

Posted September 15, 2016 By John C Wright

… they first drive mad. From a puppykicker. She offers her opinion of SOMEWHITHER Even if one considers that the Dragon Awards seem to be aimed at populist and action-packed SFF, Raising Caine or Agent of the Imperium still fit the bill much better than Somewhither, which – going by previous experience with Wright’s work – is neither […]

The Voice of the Dragon

Posted September 4, 2016 By John C Wright

I was very pleasantly surprised today when I got a phone call out of the blue congratulating me. I did not at first guess for what I was being congratulated, because I am an absent minded genius. You see, just last night I put the finishing touches on DAUGHTER OF DANGER, the fourth volume in […]

From the Pen of Moshe Feder

Posted September 3, 2016 By John C Wright

Moshe Feder was my editor, and my wife’s editor, who decided to libel and campaign against me during the Sad Puppies Hugo kerfuffle. Here he comes to a startling realization, and, even more startling, he is willing to admit it. I am deeply impressed and pleasantly surprised. This sounds like something a professional would say, […]

SOULDANCER available free today, tomorrow

Posted August 26, 2016 By John C Wright

A letter from an ally Dear Mr. Wright; You are surely aware of this year’s Hugo results at the time of this writing. Though small compared to the outrage committed against Dr. Pournelle, the Worldcon clique chose to insult the readers who nominated me for the Campbell by publicly contradicting their judgment that I am worthy of consideration for […]

The Morlock Morlocks More

Posted August 21, 2016 By John C Wright

It is a pleasure to be alive during the last days of Social Justice Fandom. These creatures, by and large, are old, sickly and obese, and playing little more than a delaying game against time, hoping that the friendly press will keep the buying public in ignorance, deceived by hoopla, one year more, one month, […]

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 […]
