Top 10 Posts for November 2019

After one writer spoke out about the steps he’d taken to get paid by ChiZine Publications, the Canadian horror publisher run by Sandra Kasturi and Brett Savory, a pent-up wave of complaints came out about the small press’s slow payment and nonpayment, as well as accusations of bullying and blackballing, and that sexist and racist remarks were made by some individuals associated with CZP. File 770 did several roundups of tweets and posts from authors who spoke out, one of them even linked by Publishers Weekly.

On the pleasant side, Bence Pintér, assisted by writers and fans from all over Europe, created a massive recommendations list of the best science fiction, fantasy and horror books published this decade in their national languages, and it was linked internationally.
