Hi SFR Brigaders. Ann Wilkes is a fellow member of Broad Universe who recently had a blog post up on why she reads more male sf writers than female. Go here to read.
As someone who writes all that mushy stuff as well as sf ... well, I couldn't let that stand, could I? :) I approached Ann and asked if she was interested in a different viewpoint and, because she's such a terrific person, she said she would love to host a contrary perspective.
So, while Ann is away in San Jose for BayCon, my post is up at her place about why romance, and human connections, are such an integral part of whatever it is we write.
I'm not sure what kind of a reaction I'm going to get, so I thought I'd drop a line here. If you have a few spare minutes, please go over and read what I have to say and, if you agree, a comment wouldn't go astray either! :)
Now, don't go jumping on Ann. She's been wonderful about hosting me there and has been incredibly supportive of what I have to say. But if you think my point has any validity, then I'd be grateful for a kind word. And thanks in advance for all your support.
