The Mallet of Loving Correction

READ ì The Mallet of Loving Correction N the Internet and on the planet Earth Nothing is sacred “Taunting the Tauntable” is the motto of Whatever Scalzi takes on politicians bigots vengeful nerds and major corporations with righteous sarcasm and also takes time to muse on love marriage children and faith Everything and anything is up for discussion examination and explanation The Mallet of Loving Correction in short is the whole range of one human’s experience in one easy to carry packag. I first encountered John Scalzi s writing and his blog Whatever when he published a brilliantly scathing incisive laugh until you choke hilarious critiue of the contracts being offered to authors by several Random House imprints I immediately started tracking down Scalzi s science fiction because a I read a lot of science fiction and b I figured that anything else this fellow wrote would probably be worth reading I also started following Whatever as well as Scalzi s Twitter feed And I ve had no regrets So when The Mallet of Loving Correction came out as an affordable ebook I grabbed itFor whatever reasons Scalzi s blog has not been especially political since I began following it unless one characterizes his concern for addressing sexual harassment at science fiction conventions as political So I wasn t uite prepared for how many of the columns in this collection concern electoral politics As it happens while my political views overlap with Scalzi s I disagree with him in a number of areas on points where he makes plain that anyone with my views can t possibly have any functional intellectual capacity That s his privilege but as he points out in some parallel contexts his freedom to say what he wants doesn t preclude me from reacting to it He also makes a factual error or two eg about the political views that members of the Tea Party are and aren t likely to hold A few of these columns also toss out accusations that this or that group of folks are lying to the public and Scalzi doesn t bother to provide corroboration Again he doesn t have to he s writing a blog not taking an exam But in some of those instances if he happened to want to convince readers of my general stripe he d need to do That said the columns in this collection are generally well written sometimes beautifully written and many are thought provoking or moving or both And uite a few are funny though none come close to the column I mentioned at the start of this review The next collection may be better in part because I m betting A Contract From Alibi will be in it But the current collection may well be worth your time and money depending in part on your politics and your blood pressure
