Did you know that there is Wrongthink science fiction?

From Bad Novelist:

The Wrongthink Sci-Fi Giveaway is about showcasing authors who have been marginalized by the gatekeepers of the sci-fi publishing industry for the sin of not complying with progressive social justice dogma. From Sarah Hoyt, who was accused of racism and ”internalized misogyny” for her association with the Sad Puppies campaign to reform the Hugo Awards, to Nick Cole, who lost a publishing contract for daring to write a story about an artificially intelligent computer who is troubled by abortion, these authors have faced smear campaigns, boycotts and blacklisting for failing to toe the progressive line. More.

Reality check: Bad novelist! Bad! You deserve plenty of readers.

Politically correct novels are an environmentally unfriendly form of litterbox liner.

    But, but, but… THE HOLLYWOOD BLACK LISTS!
    Forget that this kind of censorship is far, far worse, and way more pervasive that the made up and wildly exaggerated tales spun about the McCarthy era.

      There’s this funny line now.. stories gotta have the PC quotas just to get published, but not so far that people stop watching (let’s face it it’s almost never reading anymore).

    • It absolutely is worse.

    Yes the Sad Puppies are a great organization, if they still exist, but the Rabid Puppies (see Vox Day) are a more er ah rabid version and will not back down. The tortuous ploys of the establishment SJWs to deny awards earned by voting are on a stalinist level.

    It’s sad to see the “Hugos” now associated with the great Hugo Gernsback.(sp)

    • They will did their own hole.

      Molyneux’s conversations with Vox are always interesting… 😉

    Hopefully, fans will speak with their wallets and encourage writers that put story first, as Marvel seems to be finding out.

    • I suspect it will, no one likes to be lectured by the Hulk.

    Asimov sucks. There, I’ve said it.

    The Notebooks of Lazarus Long is sure to offend everyone. Heinlein was the Ayn Rand of hard SF.

    Much of classic science fiction is coming true today (robotic warfare, death rays, “Star Wars” missile defenses, artificial intelligence). What can authors do for an encore?

      Write fun stories where the bad guys lose; the hero gets the girl and good triumphs

    Jesus, these leftists have infested almost every avenue of our culture and civilization with nary a peep from it’s victims. McCarthy was right in the first place and had he been successful, maybe we wouldn’t be where we are now today, on the precipice of the abyss looking at the suicide of everything we used to hold dear for yet another try at a failed ideology.
