A profoundly negative review of my tor.com story, “The Speed of Time” — I continue to be baffled that people seem to think this is political fiction. Unless the absence of white male characters makes it “political”?
The power of anecdotes — Bad Science on research, reporting and anecdotal evidence.
The right-wing, blinded by its own hysteria — Yet right-wing commentators and politicians have twisted themselves in knots to portray the Park51 project as a grievous assault — and “the American people” as victims. Victims of what? Rauf’s sinister plot to despoil the city with a fitness center, a swimming pool and — shudder — a space for the performing arts? Hahaha.
