Orwellian group-think comes to real-world science fiction writing.

A little recondite, but instructive: the Hugo Awards and SFWA are the latest (if minor) institutions to have succumbed to the left's jackbooted tolerance enforcers. The issues have risen to the attention of USA Today, so it's newsworthy instead of merely nerdworthy.

Larry "Monster Hunter" Correia explains part of the problem (the Hugos) in a link within the USA Today column.

Then there's just the general stupidity of demanding that one simply must incorporate PC tropes in one's speculative fiction.

Finally, Sarah Hoyt (not exactly a charter member of the Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy herself) and John C. Wright both lower the boom.

  1. I have been following that kerfuffle for a while. I am not a huge fan of Larry Correia's books (I tried one, couldn't get into it) but I love his blog, especially when he fires up a really good fisk.

    It will be interesting to see how this goes. Are these authors doomed go down raging against the dying of the light, or are they the start of something else, and will debates such as this and those which follow it be seen in the end as the high water mark of Left wing encroachment? I hope the latter more than the former.
