A question for the readers

Which would you rather have first, A Sea of Skulls or SJWs Always Double Down? I've been focusing on the former, given how long Selenoth fans have been waiting, but it occurs to me that it might make sense to, you know, actually ask the core market what it prefers.

On a somewhat related note, the first novel in what could reasonably, but will not be, described as a New Heinlein series, Mutiny in Space by Rod Walker, will be published soon. It's an intentional attempt to capture the style and spirit of Robert Heinlein's classic SF juveniles. I think you'll find it is considerably more successful in doing so than some of the previously declared New Heinleins.


UPDATE: The readers have spoken. The current schedule will remain in place. First A Sea of Skulls, then SJWs Always Double Down.

That way, the mental image of orcs raping goblins can be burned afresh in our minds as a visual metaphor for Muslims raping Swedes. Perfect image to work with while reading SJWADD.

How long of a wait are we talking here, Vox RR Day?

I'd rather have Sea of Skulls, but if the options are Sea of Skulls in nine months, against SJWs Always Double Down in one month and then SoS in 12; I'll go with the SJWADD first.

But if there's a possibility of either one come summer, SoS.

It depends. If SoS is already mostly done and there's no writer's block, I'd say go with that, and do SJWADD if you need a break or are stalling.

I'm not quite convinced that SJWADD is time-sensitive since the SJWs will still be around and as obnoxious as ever once SoS is out.

SJWADD - It should be shorter and we are at a critical moment with Trump, Milo, etc. The cracks are there, a few more hammer blows should shatter it. Moreover, like NC and MS, many still aren't convinced, or still think moderation is good.

If the EMP happens, would you rather have "Grow or Die" or "Sea of Skulls"? There is a cultural, socionomic EMP causing brown-outs now.

Anonymous Philalethes April 21, 2016 1:58 PM  

Well, I seem to be in the minority here, but...

Although I've very much enjoyed the Selenoth stories, the first fantasy I've read in something over 40 years, and am looking forward to the next one...

If you really are working on a book titled SJWs Always Double Down, then the best time to publish it would be approximately last week, so I'd much prefer you finish it now and get it out. The War is ramping up a lot faster than I expected, and more ammunition is needed now.

Besides, I'm willing to wait a while for Sea of Skulls in the interest of your not feeling rushed while you write it. It's literature, not time-sensitive, and deserves all your care and attention from as relaxed a state of mind as possible.

Blogger tz April 21, 2016 1:59 PM  

Put differently, what would I want to have available to point OTHERS to. Selenoth is entertaining. SJWADD is enabling and liberating.

Let me put it this way:

If by the time Vox finishes Sea of Skulls, the Trumpenfuhrer has not only Made America Great Again by building the big beautiful wall and placing the illego amigos on the other side, while simultaneously barring entry to the H1B parasites, and has also demolished the SJWs to such a point that there is literally no market for SJWADD ... I will happily start and contribute to a fund to send Vox all the lost profits due to SJWADD actually having been time-sensitive.

I have a suggestion for a new book that could sell decently for a long time ... a book of terms like ad hominem, logical fallacy, strawman, so on and so forth. A book that provides a definition and a couple of examples of how it's used, it's history, etc., brief discussion of rhetoric vs dialectic, Aristotle, Socratic method, etc. etc., could turn into a staple. As long as it's written in you usual style, not like you're trying to impress the intelligentia. One or two pages per subject.

SJW ADD - keep the pressure on!
But looking forward to both, no losing either way.
Nice to hear about RW.

Sea of Skulls please.

Anonymous LastRedoubt April 21, 2016 10:54 PM  

Double Down - mostly because the bigger Selenoth books are still in my "to read" backlog, but your non-fiction work keeps getting re-read.

(That said, Wardog's Coin and "Opera" were excellent)

I can't decide. Maybe SJWADD pre-primary because if Hillary wins, there may not be much of a point.

Meanwhile, two idiots from the same family are at war.

Want? All else being equal, I want A Sea of Skulls. However, want is secondary to need. I do believe your books along the political and religious lines have the potential to break the line, wake people up, and guide them. So, I have to vote for SJWs always double down.

Civil, social, political responsibility before pleasure, any day of the week. Hop to it, HopSing.

SJWADD. It's needed because November elections are just over the horizon, and we need to be able to distribute copies to friends and acquaintances as soon as possible.

In contrast, the fiction is merely entertainment.

SJWADD. Strike again before they stop the bleeding from SJWAL.

Blogger Were-Puppy April 22, 2016 1:00 AM  

My preference -

SJWADD - First one was a gold mine and can be distributed shared with friends

Cuckservates Continue to Betray America - could wait until after the election? j/k :P

I haven't read the fiction yet, so that's my reasoning

Combine them into one massive genre-busting epic: "A Sea of SJW Skulls - Always Double Down"

SJWADD.

We've waited this long for SoS, we can wait a little longer.

Double Down

Sea of Skulls for sure.

I have really been looking forward to it.

Anonymous EH April 22, 2016 3:51 AM  

So what's your goal? Sadistic annihilation of your enemies, right? And which one is going to do that? SJWADD.

Anonymous FrankNorman April 22, 2016 5:21 AM  

One vote here for SJWs Always Double Down.

Then SJWs Always Project

Then we can have Sea of SJW Skulls.

Why is the site purple suddenly?

Because Prince.

Or else Vox is starting early on Viking pride.

Skulls for me.

I have to say, Variable Star was the book that finally pissed me off enough to swear off Spider Robinson altogether.
He's always been a homoerotic liberal, but some of his basic ideas like 'lifehouse' were interesting enough to suffer through his hippy-dippy insanity long enough to see where he was going with it.

But today? He's joined David Brin and GRRM in 'Scifi Hardcovers that are useful for nothing but propping up wobbly tables'

SJW Double Butt Invasion Down

Though I'd much rather read Sea of Skulls than be reminded that most of my fellow Americans need brain bleach.

Blogger JaimeInTexas April 22, 2016 9:15 PM  

If something were to happen to VD, which book content and topic could be addressed by another writer? On SJW, sure VD has his own style and insights but there is no one else, humanly speaking, that can see into VD's mind and write about the world therein. As it has already been pointed out, there is a soul in the story and a truer reflection of reality.
I, as person who rather read history, to say what I said earlier is no small compliment.
