Virtue Signaling And Other Heresies: Selected Writings From Whatever 2013-2018

We rated this book:


Sci-fi luminary and generally outspoken fella John Scalzi maintains a terrific blog when he’s not too busy writing New York Times bestsellers and Hugo award-winning stories.

Those blog entries run the gamut from anecdotes about his family and political opinion pieces to solid advice on the art of writing, how not to be a butthead, having pride in your work, maintaining self-respect, and more. Some pieces are poignant, some are snarky, and some are absolutely hilarious. And each is indelibly Scalzi all the way through.

Virtue Signaling And Other Heresies is unapologetically opinionated, funny, and honest, and whether you choose to read it straight through or jump around, picking and choosing based on subjects and themes, it’s a great time. In one chapter, he ranks the months simply because he can, and in another, he determines the Hogwarts houses for each of the Beatles.

Not only is the book great fun to read, but it’s a mirror of the man himself, one that reflects his virtues and foibles in equal measure. And it makes for one heck of a gateway drug to his other works.
