  8. Sci-Fi Luminary John Scalzi Swears Off Cons Without Clear and Prominent Sexual Harassment Policies

    A Lesson in Humility

    John Scalzi's no stranger to taking his clout as a successful (not to mention Hugo and Nebula award nominated/winning) science fiction author, the (now former) president of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America, and a blogger with no small amount of renown and using said clout to do good things for women who create and are interested in science fiction, and sometimes even for women in general. He participated in the first Humble EBook Bundle, where fully half of the items available where created by women, was up for a photoshoot with Jim C. Hines, and when the Susan G. Komen Foundation for the Cure defunded Planned Parenthood for very clearly political reasons, he donated all proceeds from the sale of his ebooks to Planned Parenthood. Now the author, often asked to be a prominent guest at science fiction conventions, is issuing an ultimatum to any con that wants him on their floor that is as simple as it is firm: have specific, clear rules about sexual harassment and a path to report them, and make sure that everyone knows it.

  10. Male Sci-Fi Writers Pose Like Female Cover Models and Vice Versa in This Two-of-a-Kind Print

    i'll just leave this here

    Fantasy author Jim C. Hines has been waging war against poorly photoshopped, exploitative fantasy and sci-fi novel covers for some time now, in the best way he can think of: by taking pictures of himself attempting to emulate the poses on them, and thus highlight and contrast the inherent sexuality that images of women are frequently imbued with against the power that images of men are. This time, however, he's pulled out all the stops: enlisting three other male science fiction and fantasy authors, and one female one to recreate a cover in its entire. If you're interested in owning a high quality signed print of the image on the right for, as Hines says: "your living room, your bathroom, or maybe on your bedroom ceiling. We won’t judge you!" two exist... and they're both being auctioned off for charity. Check here for updates on both auctions. Previously in Genderswap
