Mein Sf/f

Small important victory against chilling fascism. Sad Puppies, akin to GamerGate, is a group of science fiction/fantasy writers who are taking on leftist conformity in the sf/f writing world especially the Hugo awards. Article has several links, click on the 'astonishing reports' link. Takes you to a lengthy March blogpost on sf/f writer's experience with oppressive conformity demanded in sf/f literary world for the past 20 years. Post ends with; “Ask not for whom the puppies bay. They bay for you.” Tor books founder recently stood up for independent thought (because his creative director is a progressive, hateful towards conservatives) and Baen is considered the 'conservative' sf/f publisher.

AccordingtoHoyt blog website post of June 12, Dispatches from Another World, besides interesting read, continues discussion of Hugo awards leftist conformity. Good ending; “Part of the screams we hear are a dying establishment struggling to convince us they still matter.”

(Ms. Hoyt has a 15 part series on how to write/publish your first book up at PJMedia-PJLifestyle.)
