You’d think people would have the grace and good manners that, if someone asked you to leave them off of your slate/not a slate/christmas card list, you would have enough respect for them to actually abide by their wishes. You like Reynolds work enough to put it on your slate/not a slate/christmas card list, and yet when he asks you to remove him, you get hostile about it?
I am particularly thinking of poor Alastair Reynolds here, whose Slow Bullets has been caught in this mess. Cat Valente, too, is not happy by this. As always, File 770 is rounding up reactions and responses from the Puppies and others.
Author, Creator: If I were to ever put up such a recommendation list, and you asked me to remove you, I’d do it, immediately, without question.
