Vox Day has been quite vocal about his laws of SJWs, starting with his first book, SJWs Always Lie. We saw this immediately after my being removed as a speaker, when folk who were running the convention took to the hate/smear fake news site, File 770, in order to try to destroy an independent artist that they already were trying to keep down. That was me back in February.
Soon, book 2, SJWs Always Double Down will arrive. And not soon enough, as they’re already doin so with me.
This last week has shown that, as we already knew from the stellar sales that I get as a newer independent author, that people crave my science fiction. I’ve been called the leading Hispanic voice in Sci-fi by many, and then received further validation/vindication of the demand for my writing (if all of the positive reviews on Amazon/Goodreads weren’t enough!) when I was nominated for the most prestigious award in Science Fiction, Dragon Award for Best Military Science Fiction.
As I still have many friends and readers who attend Baycon and volunteer there, I naturally posted my elation to their facebook group of 1,000+ sci-fi readers/attendees. I received many likes on the post, and appreciate all the people who attend who do support my career. I wouldn’t be here without my readers, after all.
Here was my post, which I saved before I was removed from the group, and the hateful leadership who blackballed me last year removed my post:
No one can disagree that this post contains nothing to merit blocking from science fiction fandom. It’s a pure celebration of sci-fi fandom!
After only receiving positive response from Baycon members in the group, I was removed and blocked from seeing the group, my wife was removed as a member (not blocked, hwich is how I saw they took down my post as well), and I was blocked from BayCon’s twitter feed.
There are a lot of gatekeepers in the cultural establishment who don’t just ignore me despite my overwhelming popularity in the field, but they actively hate and want me to fail in my career because of who I am, a Hispanic writer with a voice that people want to hear.
The best way you can send a message to these elites is to buy my books of course, and share with your friends, but right now there’s an even bigger message to send: ensure that Star Realms: Rescue Run wins the Dragon Award for Best Military Science Fiction or Fantasy. I need your help, as I’m up against the best of the best in the field (and I mean it, I read most of the books on the list– I’m honored to even be among them) but every vote and every push that you make, my readers, changes the culture for the future to create a positive world.
