One of our readers here, Chemist, sent me this link in response to my link to Dave Freer’s post on sf short stories. So I read it.
Turns out 20BooksTo50K is a a “community dedicated to helping authors with the business of writing.” What could be wrong with that? Well anyone who remembers the Puppy Wars over the Hugo nominations know that the scolds of science fiction would prefer to burn down their own awards rather than allow anyone who isn’t up on the current LGBTQ grovelling to get into the nominations. so it surprises me not at all to hear that Puppy redux is happening at the Nebula awards over the nomination of several 20BooksTo50K authors.
Having been a strong supporter of the Puppy writers (in terms of buying their books), I’ll have to check the authors in 20BooksTo50K to see if any of them click with me.
So many books, so little lifetime left.
Thanks to Chemist for the heads up.

The Left just can’t help but destroy whatever they can’t control.
I’m hopeful things are turning a corner. The left is running out of steam.
