Emerging from blog limbo to say a few things about the election.


With all the difficult, miserable, unpleasant and scary things going on simultaneously right now, I thought I’d step up and remind you that this is probably the most critical national election in which you personally will ever participate.

That is, I certainly hope it’s the most critical. I dearly hope that there isn’t worse crap headed our way that would cause some future vote to be even more dreadful than this one.

Right. Well.

That being the case, I thought I’d let you know what I thought of Donald Trump —

— wait a moment.

Do you actually need me to tell you what I think of Trump?

I mean: you’ve read my books, right?

I’m assuming that you’re here because you’ve read my books. Really, there’s no other particular attraction to bring you here. It’s just a blog by some woman who wrote some books you’ve read. And probably liked.

Those books about a woman whose life is dedicated to truth.

Those books about logic, reason, science, and passionate devotion to the act of discovery — the better to understand the world, the real world.

Those books about finding truth, and sharing truth.

Those books about learning to see through the illusions and falsehoods; about standing up against the lies that being used to manipulate you.

Those books where the bad guys create divisions, force everyone to one side or the other side, and literally send you to war against each other — all for the sake of maintaining their place in power.

Those books where facts matter, where reality matters, where people matter.

You don’t need me to tell you what I think of Trump.

Human beings have two things: our lives, and our minds.

Anyone promoting ignorance, generating ignorance, and feeding off of ignorance is acting against humankind.

If you haven’t already voted, please do it. Don’t sit this one out.

    Please, please, PLEASE, finish the series. My wife and I have long awaited more of our favorite SF series. Please don’t delay until it is too late!

    Your post: Bravo.

    The books: Don’t let current events distract you from writing. A new book in the series would be pretty wonderful right now.

      But so hard not be be distracted… by the oncoming train wreck sliding in our direction!

      “Possible” train wreck, I should say.

    Thank you! Watching the world these days, I often feel like I’m in all those sci-fi novels I’ve read my whole life, and I know how this story ends if we let it continue on it’s current course. We have to stand up, vote, and work toward a better future…before it’s too late.

    I voted. I text banked. I phone banked. I went door to door in PA and I don’t even live there. I volunteered as a poll observer in PA. I donated every cent I could. Please let it be enough.
