A belated discovery

John Scalzi finally realizes that the science fiction community has passed him by.
John Scalzi@scalzi
Just saw my WorldCon schedule.

Single panel and a kaffeeklatsch.

Huh.
They don't respect Asimov, Clarke, and Heinlein anymore. They're certainly not going to take long to forget about a mediocre, middle-aged white male.

UPDATE: If you can't win, pretend not to have been playing the game.
John Scalzi@scalzi
It's a trend. Also, after noting last night I'd be happy to give up my panel slot, this morning I went ahead and withdrew from programming entirely, to open up slots for folks previously excluded from programming, including other Hugo finalists.
Such magnanimity! It almost brings a single tear to my eye.

They might respect current sales and new books, even from White males, but does Scalzi qualify on those grounds?

Holy shit the back and forth between him, his editor, and some of the vaunted Hugo finalists with Worldcon are amazing. Check out the feeds of @fozmeadows et al for a good laugh, particularly the dude that got misgendered (someone didn't use-i kid you not-"E/em/eir/emself or they"):"After many similar exclusionary actions, this is the last straw, I am honestly not sure I can safely attend."

It appears that they all hate, hate, hate Worldcon. Huh.

That was ten years ago.

The world really has passed that sad little freak by hasn't it? TV did not work out for him. Stargate Universe (2009) as a "creative consultant" and a complete failure to launch with Red Shirts the Basic Cable Show.

Although he did appear on Fat Wesley's YouTube show Tabletop. Can't forget that.

That's the thing about poor old Scalzi. He started out as a fake libertarian (which worked well enough to fool Glen Reynolds). But when he thought he was big enough he dropped the act and announced to the world how super-woke he was.

Problem for Scalzi. He's a white binary Cis-het (at least he was last I knew) in an SJW world where that puts you at the bottom of the totem pole.

If he goes trans-gender he can probably snag another hugo... Assuming he ever writes another book.

That's the recent furor, with a lot of the established crowd getting bumped for no-name outsiders. Of course this is all an Evil Puppy Plan by sexists, misogynists, and racists to marginalize the Right People...

As for Scalzi, he has no clue just how passed by he is. Not only has PNH moved on to new discoveries, Scalzi is not part of the group of Torling and Puppy-Kickers fleeing to Disney, Star Wars, and Marvel.

Poor old Scalzi. Not writing and being super woke on Twitter somehow didn't work out how he thought it would.

Unfortunately for him, he's the lowest on the Social Justice totem pole. Even lower than those evil, alt-right huwite males. He's almost-male soy golem doormat - the only thing despised by SJWs AND everyone else.

It's almost as if completely throwing every ounce of his dignity and any values he might have once had to the wind just to prostrate himself to the false god of Social Justice was possibly the worst decision he could have made. Now he can't even get attention from his broad shouldered "wife" or any of his "fans". Not even his haters notice him.

They say the opposite of love is not hate, but apathy.

About 5 years ago, before I had the full dose of Doctor Vox's Sci-Fi Fantasy Red Pill and couldn't quite put my finger on what was wrong with everything, I went to a Con.

I had never been before and never went after that one time. Besides all of the things we usually hear about conventions (blue haired whales, pedo-predators, High BO/Low Deodorant ratios, etc.) what leapt out at me the most: The panels.

On every panel, there was usually at least one recognizable name. But the rest of each panel was an absolute Nobody. And they were put on these panels to talk about things like 'Getting Published', 'Getting Off The Slush Pile'. Things of that nature.

It was actually quite sad and depressing to listen to people who have nothing published, except possibly self-published short stories on their blogs. Which no one actually reads.

It was bizarro world.

I like your wording here. A good title for a history of western Civilization :

The Nefarious History of the Jews.

Did you know that the Hebrews became numerous in Egypt because they kept cattle and Egyptians could not due to religious imperatives?

Did you know the Jews became prominent in banking because of the catholic ban on usury?

There is more, but that is enough for now.

this is a lie.

the Jews used Solomon's Temple as their central bank and repository. and that's according the Jews themselves. that's why the Temple was torn down stone from stone, when the Temple burned large quantities of the gold and silver melted and went down into the foundations of the Temple. they had to tear the Temple down in order to get the shiny back.

the Jews were fully involved in usury, tax collecting and money-changing hundreds or thousands of years before Jesus was even born.

now, ask yourself two questions:
1 - who would benefit by the Catholic Pope prohibiting Christians from lending at interest ... but not actually making the practice illegal?

2 - how old are the Torah laws which permit usury to be practiced against the goyim ... but never against a fellow Jew?

How far behind his Tor contract schedule is he now?


the contract is 13 books ( 3 YA, 10 regular skiffy ) over 10 years, signed in May 2015.

thus far, by my count he's got

The Collapsing Empire, March 2017
Head On, April 2018
The Consuming Fire, scheduled for October 2018

The End of All Things was serialized over the month of June 2015, but knowing how slowly Johnny writes, there's no way in hell he didn't have that whole thing finished before he signed the Tor contract. whether or not he can buffalo Tor into considering that part of his contract obligations, i have no idea.

but he's three years ( 37 months ) into the contract and needs to be releasing a new book every ~9 months ( 120 months / 13 books ).

by my calculations, he's got 83 months to write 10 books. not HUGELY late but definitely not giving himself any safety margin.

@9- He doesn't have to impersonate one type of tranny: transvestite. Because he is one, at least occasionally. Does that get him any Diversity Pokemon Points?

"In your heart, you know we're right."

Is that MPAI or sarcasm?

When will I learn not to click links around here.
@#$&+ it.

Larry Correia often confronts events with a "single manly tear".

Pretty tough to 'out manly' Correia.

Read up on how priapism is actually treated, and you'll lose it fast.

@24

"But seriously, he's the only name I recognize in the whole shit show. They couldn't wheel out one of the old grand masters that's still around? Couldn't sully the event with people that actually sell fiction? Who ARE these people??"

Jealous, no-talent losers.

That is why I love LibertyCon in Chattanooga. Nothing but writers! And plenty of panels for them.

"Lol. She's sold literally hundreds of copies."

Much more accurate now.

Look on the bright side, John has more time to write now.

I haven't been to his blog in some time so went over to visit. A lot of boring posts, most made by his fat little daughter, few comments made by his boring fan base, a very few. One thing that was interesting, Scalzi used to allow any posts only to "mallet" them later, now he has introduced moderation for comments, would like to know the story behind that.
Anyway the puppy whisper campaign continues, little johny has only begun to cry.

Blogger Dirk Manly July 24, 2018 8:29 PM  

Hey all you whispering puppies, don't give away the plot.

OPSEC.

"They don't respect Asimov, Clarke, and Heinlein anymore. They're certainly not going to take long to forget about a mediocre, middle-aged white male." Yeah because every SciFi author gets a con panel? Right it seems that this is a fake tweet since you don't give a screen cap nor allows us a link to said tweet.

Blogger pdwalker July 25, 2018 3:36 PM  

@114 yes, because looking it up yourself is too hard.

grading? 2/10. troll fail. try harder next time.

Blogger Zander Stander July 25, 2018 5:00 PM  

Didn't Arthur C. Clarke own an island? Was Heinlein a proto-polyamorist? That in itself should gain them new respect nowadays.
