"Fantasy Writer Terry Goodkind Now Claims He Hated His Book Cover Because It's 'Sexist'" (see A368)
Looking at some crowdfunding data (see A368)
Tor Books reshuffle
Ansible 368 had several production hiccups. Heavy snow on 1 March made the prospect of the usual town-centre copy shop seem deeply uninviting, and paper copies were coaxed out of the ancient Ansible laser printer. After an unpleasant trip to the post box, it was time for the digital editions ... at which point our broadband stopped working. Updating the website via cellphone is not unlike uploading a camel through the eye of a needle. Various other notifications, the email lists and Usenet had to wait until net access was restored on 2 March. What fun.
