Virtue Signaling and Other Heresies

Virtue Signaling and Other Heresies

by John Scalzi

Availability: Out of Print


Virtue Signaling: A chronicle of a turbulent, momentous moment in time, from one of the most important science fiction authors of his time.


“‘Virtue signaling’ is a phrase the dim and bigoted use when they want to discount other people expressing the idea that it would be nice if we could all be essentially and fundamentally decent to each other.” -- John Scalzi

For twenty years now—yes, twenty—John Scalzi has been writing on his blog Whatever, writing about, well, whatever: Politics, writing, cats, the internet and the great social and cultural events of our times. In that time he’s gone from being just another crank online to being a bestselling, award-winning crank, i.e., the very best kind of crank there is.

With Virtue Signaling and Other Heresies, Scalzi looks back on the years 2013 through 2018. In this volume, Scalzi delves through the final term of Obama and the ushering in of the Trump years, surveys the increasingly-hostile online landscape, goes to the movies, and talks on subject ranging from #MeToo to the teachers who shaped him growing up. Through it all, Scalzi’s distinct voice—funny, sarcastic, passionate, sometimes angry, and honed by two decades of daily writing served up to hundreds of thousands of readers monthly—is on full display.

Virtue Signaling: A chronicle of a turbulent, momentous moment in time, from one of the most acclaimed science fiction authors of his time.

Limited: 1000 signed numbered hardcover copies

From Booklist:

“Scalzi does not shy away from using the blog to share his opinions on politics and culture, particularly President Trump, the NRA, activism, privilege, and why avoiding controversy is a bad idea for a creative individual… The quick, conversational essays are delivered with humor, honestly, and humility and are just like Scalzi himself, ‘all over the place and a bit pixilated.’”
