There's been a lot of hubbub since my last post regarding Jessica Verday, Trisha Telep and the supposed 'alternative sexualities' thing I keep hearing about. A lot of people have been asking me about this so here are a few useful links as to what's been happening:
I sincerely regret the sequence of events which has led to Jessica Verday’s story ‘Flesh Which Is Not Flesh’ being excluded from the forthcoming anthology Wicked Pretty Things. This has been the result of a misunderstanding on my part which is entirely regrettable. Along with publishers Constable & Robinson Ltd, who commissioned the anthology, and Running Press, who are due to co-publish the book in the United States, I fully support LGBTQ issues. I apologise wholeheartedly for any offence that I have caused and offer the assurance that I would not in future reject any story on the grounds that it included a gay (or any LGBTQ) relationship.
"f it no more pretty wicked things for me. i'm withdrawing."
