Ok folks, now it’s time for conservatives to take a leaf out of the progressives’ playbook, and promote somebody because he’s Our Guy. Also, it helps that he’s a truly excellent writer, so we don’t even have to compromise on our principles of supporting quality over groupthink! /irony/
Larry Correia is Book Bombing John C. Wright’s new *coughfanficcompilationcough* Awake in the Night Land, which is basically a plot to have everyone buy the book on the same day so that it gets more exposure. I’m not personally familiar with the source material, which is a 1912 novel The Night Land by William Hope Hodgson. (This is undoubtedly because I’m badly educated. Mea culpa, and it’s on my list!) Of course, not being familiar with the source work has never stopped me from reading well-written fanfiction before, so I went out (to Amazon) and bought it! Even if I don’t really “get” the full effect of the stories before I read Hodgson’s book, I know I’m likely to enjoy these stories simply for Wright’s felicity with prose. I’m not really going to have time to read it today, alas – but if it rains tomorrow my plans will be washed out and I’ll suddenly have a bit of extra time!
