Wow! Very thoughtful post from Bookwraiths about the state of SFF. Personally, I read for the entertainment so if I run across something heavy-handed it turns me off. When I write, I try to keep it entertaining and avoid devolving into agenda-based proselytizing. I always want to keep it professional at all times. I think it’s important to keep focused on SFF being entertainment and fun rather than everyday issues. I read and write to get away from issues of the day though such topics can be woven into the plot when necessary (and only that). Everything else just becomes disingenuous to readers. Well said, BW!
