Another 'Rag & Muffin' Sneak Peek
Once I complete the chapter I'm currently working on, I'll be fully halfway through the revision of Rag & Muffin , which I still expect to finish by the end of the summer. My goal is to have it on an editor's desk by the time I take my return trip to India...
Once I complete the chapter I'm currently working on, I'll be fully halfway through the revision of Rag & Muffin, which I still expect to finish by the end of the summer. My goal is to have it on an editor's desk by the time I take my return trip to India in late October.

A Brief Note on Storytelling vs. Political Grandstanding
One thing that really, more than anything else, cheeses me off about the so-called "Social Justice Warriors" is their appropriation of moral criticism, that is, the analysis of literature or other art for its moral content.  These people are usually proud a...

Gratuitous Music Video
I happened to notice that an artist I much admire, Lindsey Stirling, a violinist, has a brand new music video out, this one with a sort of Inception -esque dreamscape thingy going on, so I thought I might as well share it. I note in passing that Stirling, l...

Writing for Message, not to Entertain
I originally wrote and published this essay on this blog many, many moons ago, but I think it apropos to reprint it in light of recent discussions of Social Justice Warriors and their determination to place message above entertainment in storytelling. Read...

Patrick Nielsen Hayden Learns about Sad Puppies
Man, the SJWs have really gone ballistic. The smear campaigning and the outright lying are just off the charts. Salon , The Atlantic , and Entertainment Weekly are perhaps the guiltiest parties, printing articles accusing the Sad Puppies of pushing an "all...

We're Going to Build Our Own Hugo Awards with Blackjack and Hookers
Last year was only the second year of the so-called Sad Puppies campaign, a movement started by Larry Correia and which has since grown bigger than he is and beyond his control.  It is an effort to reclaim the Hugo Awards for the sf fandom and take it from ...

The Hill to Die On
I recently received this in my e-mail from Catholicvote.org : Columnist Mollie Hemingway said it perfectly today: “If religious liberty is the wrong hill to die on in America, then there is no such thing as the right hill to die on.” The events in Indiana, ...

An Evening with the Mormon Missionaries.
So I had the Mormon missionaries over this evening.  It is my humble opinion that when the Catholic finds the proselytizers of another sect at his door, the polite and Christian thing to do is to show them all courtesy.  Hospitality demands it, and it is an...

Addendum: Anatomy of the SJW
