Some questions asked of me recently in person, via e-mail or on social media.
You haven’t written anything much on the Hugos situation recently. Why not?
Because at this point it’s boring as shit and neither I nor anyone else has anything new to say about it, and I have better uses of my time. Plus I’ve already voted. Done thinking about it unless forced to.
Related: Hey, remember that boycott of Tor Books? Did that affect you at all?
As far as I can tell it had no impact on my sales, or anyone else’s. This did not surprise me in the least.
Hey, they’re taking down the Confederate flag at the South Carolina capitol! Your thoughts on that?
Good. Took long enough.
Enraging business associates with your racism when you’re never going to be president anyway doesn’t appear to be a fabulous strategy.
Also not going to be president, but I’m glad he’s giving Hillary some worries.
Chinese stock market!
I know very little about this. Glad I don’t have stocks there.
What very little I know about this makes me suspect the drachma is going to make a comeback there sometime soon.
Ariana Grande licking donuts!
Why would I give a shit about this in any way?
But she licked some donuts!
So don’t eat those donuts.
Please don’t make me kill you.
Women’s World Cup!
Government officials refusing to marry same-sex couples!
Bigots who should be out of a job.
What about cats?
I don’t know, just, cats!
San Diego Comic-Con!
Hope everyone there is having fun. I still want them to improve their harassment policy, which continues not to give useful examples of what harassment is, and I still won’t set foot into the convention proper until it does.
I think that’s everything today.
