Reader poll

Just out of curiosity, which do you want to read first?
  • A Sea of Skulls, the final edition
  • SJWs Always Double Down
  • Alt-Right Revolution
  • The Collapsing Empire
Don't get too excited about any one particular option. You know me. I could end up doing something else entirely.

On a completely unrelated note, the daily average pageviews at Infogalactic have nearly doubled since October and are now rivaling this blog. I'm looking forward to it leaving VP in the very distant dust in the near future. For all that the SJWs would like it to be, Infogalactic has never been about me or my politics. I just want a better dynamic knowledge core for everyone.

Alt-Right Revolution, no contest. Each book has its time, and that one is now. You're great at defining things, and the 16 points are a great bulwark against malicious definition, but this is a moment to be seized for recruitment.

Seem DD will be topical in about a month. You KNOW they're going to go full 'Trump is illegitimate! Selected, not elected!' If he has a great first month (from America's perspective) I think they'll be exceptionally depressed.

That said, I'm way behind on my non-fake news fiction reading, so SoS and ARR timing doesn't matter to me. Should I reread the Foundation series to get ready for Collapsing Career?

Finish ASOS!

Anonymous Philalethes December 18, 2016 3:10 PM  

Though I can understand why some want to see the complete ASoS next (I'm reading the preliminary now, and can see I'll need to go back and reread AToB to figure out the plot; I expect to do so when the complete ASoS appears, maybe even go back and read the whole oeuvre), the time is clearly right (not to say perfect) for the political/social works, so that's what I'd prefer to see first.

While ASoS is a lengthy, dense work of fiction, which I'm sure has required and will require a lot of concentration and time, Double Down is already partially written, in a way, as an enlargement of part of SJWAL, and seems unlikely to go much more than 100 pages. Current events, especially those associated with December 19 and January 6 and 20, will provide plenty of juicy examples; the book could almost write itself, and appear in February, when memories of these SJW shenanigans are still fresh.

And Alt-Right Revolution should be next, appearing perhaps after Trump's first 100 days provides some concrete examples of where we may be going, on which substantive predictions may be based.

Arts of Dark and Light promises to be a long-term classic. I especially like its counterposition to GRRM's now far-overgrown paean to decadence without any redeeming grace (so I understand; I've never felt any interest in reading or watching it). We've waited a while for the second part, and will wait even longer for the third (a trilogy is planned, I believe?). I counsel patience. I think we all would like this Magnum Opus to be something we can turn to again with pleasure ten years from now. Which it can be. Take the time to do it right (and a little more copy-editing, please; the little errors grate).

As for the Empire, let it Collapse on its own; it needs no help.

(Brave won't let me edit a Previewed comment; the little "edit" button doesn't appear. So to Safari.)

Haven't even started AToB (waiting for the final version of SoS before I get started), so I'd prefer one of the non-fiction books first.

ARR and SJWADD are very timely topics, and will be useful/required as handbooks for the Trump era -- either of them would be a good first choice, followed by the other one.

Alt-Right Revolution.

My own enthusiasm aside, I just did a quick search on Amazon. When you key in "alt-right" and see how the search bar auto-fills, you see that Amazon customers are looking for alt-right shirts and hats. This seems a strong sign of enthusiasm for the subject in general.

On the book front, so far, much of what's been written about the alt-right is negative. A counter-view seems long overdue, and the timing is definitely right.

Anonymous gxg December 18, 2016 4:24 PM  

Heh! I just noticed something. When you search the Amazon kindle store for "alt-right," the following book is prominent among the search results.

Amen to the notion of infogalactic. I just wish I could scrub wikipedia and replace it with i.g. I'm stuck in Pale Moon and Iron for browsers, in part due to being stuck on a Vista machine. So... Yea, sure, maybe kicking over to some sort of linux, but this machine won't allow thumbdrive os running, and... it gets messy. Still... I'll be keeping it in mind. It would be good to have automated access and wikipedia banned. Hate them all on my own.

I figure A Sea of Skulls is what's in your future anyway, and the others are all pretty much a joke. If you really have thought of the material to go beyond SJWAL I'd be mildly surprised as it seems complete with little to be added. SJWs are a great topic though if you have enough insight for another book.

I use to be a heavy-duty fantasy/sci-fi fan in my youth, read my first Tarzan book at age six and a half, and most of Heinlein by the time I was twelve. I also read Tolkien for the first time in my pre-teens.

So I should start on your fantasy books, obvious to me now.

And by then we'll see if The Collapsing Empire is still a joke, which I have mixed feelings about; I would rather America not be an empire, and I would rather not have to endure a collapse of social order.
