An Inside Look at the SJW Convergence in Science Fiction Publishing

Almost two months ago, author Jon Del Arroz wrote an article exposing an endemic anti-male bias in the publishing industry. For this, he was viciously attacked by members of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers Association (SFWA). Not only was he attacked online, but a this spilled over into real life. Today, he released anotherContinue reading “An Inside Look at the SJW Convergence in Science Fiction Publishing”

The Problem of Social Justice Mobs in the Speculative Fiction World

As many of us who follow the news in the speculative fiction writing world are well aware of,  the problem of mobs of the perpetually offended attacking authors is a pervasive one. The targets of these attacks are not only those of us on the political right, but also even those who are ideologically inContinue reading “The Problem of Social Justice Mobs in the Speculative Fiction World”

There was a special Geek Gab episode today, and a bit of a different one, as it dealt with politics–albeit those within the science fiction and fantasy publishing world.

This review’s been long in coming, but I’m finally getting to it. It’s always harder to do reviews when it’s been some time since I read the book, but I haven’t forgotten anything major.

It’s been out over ten days already, but I only just saw this excellent post  by Dominika Lein, where she talks about her experience as part of the Pulp Revolution (also known as PulpRev) scene. It’s definitely worth checking out. While we’re here, I figure it’s as good a time to talk a bit about myContinue reading “Still PulpRev”

Message fiction predominates, and mainstream authors seem more keen on pushing their social justice agendaContinue reading “Why the #PulpRevolution Will Win”

Insensitivity

My blog content has, unfortunately, dropped off a bit lately, in part due to a lot going on, but now I plan to get back to regular posts, even as I have a lot to do before I return to Israel, and continue working on more books. That’s enough of that for now, however. TimeContinue reading “Insensitivity”

As #SpaceOperaWeek comes to a close, author Jon Del Arroz has compiled a nice list of some of the great pieces of content released this week, most, of course, by the #PulpRevolution, as we co-opted the tag.

It’s #SpaceOperaWeek, but Where are the Aliens?

So, Tor.com decided that this week is Space Opera Week (#SpaceOperaWeek on Twitter), though thus far it seems that I and a few other fellow members of the #PulpRevolution have been dominating the hashtag, though that may be unsurprising, as Tor is using contributors who aren’t fans of the genre. Jon Del Arroz, author ofContinue reading “It’s #SpaceOperaWeek, but Where are the Aliens?”
