There's a surge in folks telling writers to "Stay in their lane. Be non-political. Don't alienate readers."

If you've read my books and think I'd ever do any of this, you haven't understood my books.

I gleefully offended people with a book on a forty year old text editor.

My lighthearted SF mysteries? Post-apocalyptic? The six foot Weiner Dentata? Political.

Beaks? Bwahahaha, wildly political.

Cozy mysteries? Sorry, folks, "git commit murder" is political AF.

Humans are political animals, literally everything we do is dripping in politics.
