SFF Ethics, a new website has just launched, with the following mission statement:
Our mission is to celebrate everything positive, funky and exciting in the Fantasy, Science Fiction and Horror Universe! The SFFE is a core platform, a hub of authors who have banded together with the aim of celebrating all that is positive in genre fiction. We aim to leave cynicism and negativity at the door, and concentrate on what makes us smile, what entertains us, and what brings light and joy to our SF, fantasy and horror universe.That’s not to say there is no place for criticism— there’s plenty bad in the world. However, this little digital corner is a place for positive progression, somewhere you will (hopefully) come if you want to smile and be entertained.
This is a good thing: there’s far too much bitching and sniping online, so any site that tries to slap down negativity, I’m all for. The internet being what it is, faceless criticism is all too common (we’re behind computers so there’s no need for manners, right?), so I hope this site can celebrate what’s good. And I like the fact that it’s nicely wide-ranging and open and a little vague, because that won’t limit it, and should give us some interesting pieces.
