A Storm Blew Up Over the Weekend

At the time that we were posting about reading women writers’ books in the SFF genre, a ****storm has been exploding in the MM community.

For those who don’t know what’s happening, here’s a summary of events in this blog: http://bit.ly/2FwmaHQ

There are links in the 3-part article to give you a more in-depth look, if you want.

For those with orders/pre-orders of this author’s books, please be aware that Riptide and Dreamspinner have dropped him. Not sure his two other publishers. You may want to have your pre-orders cancelled.

In any case, we at The Romance Reviews condemn the gaslighting, catfishing, cyberbullying, fraudulent activities of this author. Our hearts go out to his victims, and to those who have spoken up, thank you for your bravery and courage. We stand with you. Thus we will no longer be reading or reviewing works by this author. All reviews posted at the site will also be removed.

Love has long been the language of classic literature. From Pride and Prejudice to My Fair Lady to Les Miserables, each of these beloved stories features, at its core, two people coming together. But in the stories we studied as children and adore as adults, the central couple is straight. LGBTQ+ people have existed throughout history, but in Western classics, they’ve been erased or, worse, killed or made the villains of the piece. That ends now. Continue reading
