Fiction writers today have a plethora of options for getting their stories out, from e-books to streaming video to old fashioned print. But the challenge of capturing people’s imagination, in addition to slipping through the ever-tightening electronic net in an age of censorship has made the task of right-leaning authors all the more difficult in the modern era. Tonight we are joined by our good friend Ethnarch for a special ‘After Dark’ episode to talk about the speculative fiction, sci-fi and fantasy genres and the importance they bear on the broader front of the culture war.
