All the real writers wrote off the Hugo Awards long ago. I just became a SJW shit show.

Since I'm friends with the real writers behind all four Sad Puppies campaigns, I can confirm that you are correct. Sad Puppies 3 was basically the last nail in the coffin for most of us, but this year's WorldCon was a spectacular Hindenberg re-enactment, even before it started.

Honest question: are her books any good?

I’ve never heard of her before now.

Amazon doesn’t seem to be giving any “look inside” freebies, and the reviews are so generic as to be useless.

Honest question: are her books any good?

I find her unreadable because of the eight deadly words: I don't care about any of these people.

People who have read more of her than I have argue that she has potential, but writes like an inexperienced newbie, making all kinds of mistakes (like failing to give the reader a reason for caring), but instead of learning, she gets praised and rewarded.

(And I go out of my way to praise SJWs who can actually write, like S.L. Huang.)

This might be a new concept to you, but it's entirely possible to criticize her for her own faults, rather than falling back on racism against her and, totally randomly, da joooooooooooooos.

To begin with, she lives off her professorship and her Patreon, since very few people actually read, let alone buy, her books. And if her revenue sources dry up, she can still buy her $500 capes because her parents are rich, and were when she was a child, meaning she was privileged, not oppressed.

Hitting her for her actual faults is much more productive than spewing ignorant hate and showing yourself to be a tribalist idiot.

And yet, what he wrote was completely accurate. And undeniable. But for some reason, you don't want to say it. Hmm, I wonder why that could be?

she is a much worse racist than I could ever be. I dont pretend to be a victim. 13% of the population. 53% of the murders. FUCK YOU!
