SFWA Is A Terrorist Organization

That’s certainly a spicy headline, isn’t it? This is just a quick post, to formalize my support of Cirsova’s statement on the matter, which you can read over at his website. SFWA’s open endorsement of the violent Black Lives Matter organization makes this very easy to do. This doesn’t even take into account the supportContinue reading “SFWA Is A Terrorist Organization”

Wizards of the Coast Can Go To Hell

I guess the title makes things pretty clear from the outset, doesn’t it? As a company, Wizards of the Coast is dead to me. It’s been coming for a while now, but around last week was where it all solidified, and I’ve determined to no longer buy any sealed product from them. (With maybe aContinue reading “Wizards of the Coast Can Go To Hell”

A Final Thought on “Representation” in Fiction

Now, I’ve talked a bit about this nonsense before, so I’m not going to spend too much time talking about why the whole campaign for “representation” in fiction is stupid. In brief, anyone who feels some sort of personal need for characters who look like them is pathetic. All that should matter in fiction is ifContinue reading “A Final Thought on “Representation” in Fiction”

How to Get Work Done–Even in “Challenging” Times

Unless you’ve been living under a very large rock, or literally out in space, you’re aware that it’s been a rather… interest year, between the pandemic, the current riots, and other things. Now, while there have certainly been some inconveniences for me over these past several months, it’s been a super productive year, writing-wise. AContinue reading “How to Get Work Done–Even in “Challenging” Times”

Being “Apolitical” is not a Virtue

A little while ago, David V. Stewart made a solid blog post about the concept of being “apolitical,” and I had something to add to it. Namely, beware people who use their alleged “apolitical” nature as a virtue. You see, as David pointed out in his post, being truly Apolitical is all-but impossible. Just theContinue reading “Being “Apolitical” is not a Virtue”

Let’s Watch Girls Und Panzer: Episode 9

Been a little longer than I would’ve liked, but now we’re back with Girls Und Panzer Episode 9: “We’re in Deep Trouble!” We don’t pick up right where we left off—not quite. We’re treated to a little flashback to explain the revelation we got at the end of last episode. The Student Copuncil is meetingContinue reading “Let’s Watch Girls Und Panzer: Episode 9”

Galaxy Ascendant 7: A Worthy Sacrifice Kickstarter is Live!

The end draws near! For anyone who didn’t see it yesterday, the Kickstarter campaign for the seventh and final book in the Galaxy Ascendant series is live! In A Worthy Sacrifice, our heroes face one last desperate struggle to prevent an enemy they had not prepared for from undoing all their hard-won victories. Everyone must give their all,Continue reading “Galaxy Ascendant 7: A Worthy Sacrifice Kickstarter is Live!”

Let’s Watch Girls Und Panzer: Episode 8

Barreling toward the end of the season, but we’ve still got a few episodes left, starting with this one: Up Against Pravda! We pick up aboard a ship we’ve not seen before, sailing somewhere cold enough that there’s tons of ice in the ocean around it. This is the Pravda schoolship, as you might’ve guessedContinue reading “Let’s Watch Girls Und Panzer: Episode 8”

Revealing: Light Unto Another World

Well, I was originally going to wait a bit longer for this, but Yom Ha’atzmaut seemed like a pretty appropriate time. Today we celebrated the re-establishment of the state of Israel, which played a major role in ushering in a new era for the Jewish people, and revived the image of the fighting Jew, somethingContinue reading “Revealing: Light Unto Another World”

Yom Ha’atzmaut 5780 (2020): The Freedom to Be Locked Down

It’s been a weird year, hasn’t it? I don’t think I need to go into detail as to why; if you’re not aware, you must’ve been such a shut-in before Coronavirus that the lockdowns mean nothing to you. The irony isn’t lost on me that we here in Israel are all spending the 72nd IndependenceContinue reading “Yom Ha’atzmaut 5780 (2020): The Freedom to Be Locked Down”
