Misrepresenting History–Again

I have numerous writing projects I’d rather be working on right now, but, yet again, I’m seeing people misrepresent the piece of history which I spent a great deal of time researching and writing about. To write something every time someone wrote an article with outright falsehoods, mistakes, and over-generalizations about Miklos Horthy and theContinue reading “Misrepresenting History–Again”

Women Crying During Wonder Woman’s Fight Scenes, and the Problem with Modern Priorities

So,¬†Wonder Woman was a good movie. In my opinion, a very good one, and definitely one of my favorite superhero movies of all time, largely because it maintained a good balance, in my view, between being s serious story but also remaining optimistic and fun (unlike previous DC movies.) Also, having a main character who¬†wantedContinue reading “Women Crying During Wonder Woman’s Fight Scenes, and the Problem with Modern Priorities”

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”

Setting A Historical Record Straight

Amidst all the excitement over the release of my debut novel, A Greater Duty, last week, and the fun of #SpaceOperaWeek, some might’ve seen my mention of an award I received at my (now former) college for excellence in writing my 40,000+ word Master’s thesis on Hungary’s Horthy era, which lasted from 1920 to 1944.Continue reading “Setting A Historical Record Straight”

Real Talk: Being Honest About The Situation in Israel

(Note: I’ve created a new tag for this, because unlike pretty much everything else I plan to write on this website, I’m not going to tie in to writing, or genre fiction in general. This is just something that needs to be said. This is not meant to be an authoritativ treatise on the subject,Continue reading “Real Talk: Being Honest About The Situation in Israel”

Personal Musings: 2016 Wrap-Up (And What to Look Forward to in 2017)

So, I was seeing lots of people writing 2016 wrap-up posts, so I figured I should do the same, even if it is a bit late. (And, also, this allows me to get something new up here while I keep working on a pair of longer posts that are taking longer than expected.) So, 2016,Continue reading “Personal Musings: 2016 Wrap-Up (And What to Look Forward to in 2017)”

Personal Musings: New Paths

So, once again, I have been unable to regularly get posts up here, this time in large part to a pair of major changes in my life and career trajectory, which I touched upon a couple months back in one of my last posts on here. First, as mentioned there, I moved country, from theContinue reading “Personal Musings: New Paths”

Writer’s Ramble: Star Trek and (Intellectual) Diversity

(A note: This post will be touching on politics; I do not intend to do so often, and I’d much rather be writing about writing, or SF/F stuff I love, but this is something that needed to be said. Also, this, as it is under my “Writer’s Ramble” header, this was written in a relativelyContinue reading “Writer’s Ramble: Star Trek and (Intellectual) Diversity”

Writer’s Ramble: Some Thoughts on the Dragon Awards, and SF/F Publishing Awards in General

(Trying out putting super-titles before article titles so I can better categorize my posts here in the future once I reorganize this site. This post, and posts that’ll have the Writer’s Ramble super-title will be largely written in one sitting, with me just saying my opinions, as opposed to future articles that’ll feature more researchContinue reading “Writer’s Ramble: Some Thoughts on the Dragon Awards, and SF/F Publishing Awards in General”
