No, Do Not “Let the Past Die”

As those who follow me on Twitter and have watched my recent periscope know, I have a great many problems with Star Wars: The Last Jedi. That said, pretty much every criticism worth making has been voiced by others, and I unfortunately don’t have time for a full-length review; however, I had to comment on one…

Some Personal Thoughts on Self-Censorship

Jon Del Arroz is really hitting it out of the park this week (pun intended). His recent article on the national anthem controversy and baseball has really blown up, and he’s been receiving a lot of hate for it. Check out a Best Of compilation of those comments over on his site. I’d like to…

No One Expects the SFWA Inquisition

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.

Diversitygate, One Year Later

Well, time certainly does fly. I still remember when this first took place a year ago. Bre’s video has a full recounting of what took place as well as its aftermath, but I’ll quickly summarize here. Bre Faucheux, then a book reviewer on YouTube as well as an indie author, made a video calling out…
