You know, I was all set to do one, last, big post, explaining my motivations, why I wrote the bombshell, clarifying things I meant, and responding to a few more points before signing off…Then John C. Wright wrote this.
And you know what? It’s so good, so well-written and compellingly argued, I have nothing else to really say about the matter. If everyone can get behind that, I think we’ll do just fine.
That’s all from me for now, folks. Jeffro offered me a deal that’s too good to pass up. I mentioned that I’d keep up with the debate until it stopped being fun, and it stopped. But the cross-pollination was good for both blogs (though ours especially, for obvious reasons), and I’m all in favor of keeping that up. So expect to see some short fiction reviews showing up here and less editorials, at least from me (as always, I don’t speak for anyone but myself). That’s more fun anyway!
So after all of that…I encourage everyone to read Mr. Wright’s post. Trust me. You won’t regret it if you find this topic remotely interesting.
And now I’ll relax.
