Near Past Future

I have a nasty habit of setting stories in the 80s and 90s. It's easy to chalk this up to nostalgia, and since all of my childhood cultural references are tethered to 80s and the first few years of the 90s, no research required, but mostly I find myself doing this as a way to free myself from 2014 politics. I've already talked about my issues with political correctness in the blog world, which are few actually, but in art or writing I have huge problems with self-imposed restrictions. And I find myself doing it anyway when writing marginalized characters.
