Just when you thought it wasn't over:

"The backsliding editor and ignorant publisher of Wierd Tales Magazine (sic) should be ashamed of themselves, the one for condemning a book he admits to not even having read, the other—more disturbingly—who read it and loved it and wrote a truly sensational rave review about it, now taking all that back in the face of some ignorant criticism and hysteria from a few others who have NOT read it. Unbelievable.

This all reminds one uncannily of the Hollywood Blacklist of the 1950s when, during the insanity of McCarthyism and The House Un-American Activities Committee, the movie industry—including all it's Studio Heads—destroyed the careers of so many writers and directors and actors under the slightest pressure to do so from any one of a group of disgruntled attackers who deemed them insufficiently loyal or patriotic. If you have read Victoria Foyt's "Save The Pearls" you know that it is a wonderfully written book, a deeply moving warning about the very real dangers of ignorant racism, prejudice and profound climate change in a sadly not-too-distant future, as well as being a truly touching tale of self-discovery and young love. How a few disturbed non-readers have been scared off by images on its web-page is a cautionary tale. There is nothing to be frightened of here, everything to applaud.

I strongly recommend you read it for yourself and see.

You will not be disappointedd.
Henry Jaglom"

Unfortunately I can't go to Chicon this year, as I may be buying a house and moving during that time period, and my wife would kill me if I spent that weekend partying with all my friends . . . so I have to give up my Chicon membership. Drop me an email with a reasonable price!

    Susan Cooper is obviously well known for The Dark Is Rising sequence,
but she's also on the Board of the National Children's Book and Literacy Alliance,
a U.S. nonprofit organization that advocates for literacy, literature, and libraries.

It seems an oversight that she hasn't been given a Lifetime Achievement already.

I've been distracted, lately, but I do want to do a quick shout-out, for the nonprofessional category, for:

Cat Rambo for Fantasy Magazine

Cat gave four years to editing and managing Fantasy Magazine,
so I think it'd be nice to give her a nod this year.
