I didn’t know about John C. Wright till, this winter, the science-fiction writer and reviewer Robert Chase sent me a note suggesting I read Wright’s Golden Age series.

You gotta love Wright, though, for this recent response to a reviewer (noted over at the always-interesting Postmodern Conservative blog, by Will Wilson):

An interviewer once asked me if my Christianity or my political philosophy would offend readers, by which he meant readers to the Left of Center. I answered that since such readers get offended at plain, ordinary and decent things like heroism, romance and marriage, I have no need to expend effort to offend them with more abstract or topical questions.
