Brian Keene on Bad Moon Books

Brian Keene wrote a blog entry regarding Bad Moon Books and its head honcho, http://www.briankeene.com/?p=250.

This was something I wrote about back on August 15, in regards to a thread on SL, https://raingods.wordpress.com/2008/08/15/matt-gets-his-snippers-out-again/.

I have to say, I’m very happy that a writer with the profile of Mr. Keene was able to not only take a stand but point out some hypocrisy as well.  There is no difference between Roy Robbins and La Femme Nikita, when it comes to their blatant homophobia.  One can’t codemn Nikita and ignore, or brush aside Robbins’ comments because he’s a publisher. Any writer with any semblance of conscience would not do business with him. Any reader, would do well to not buy or support authors on his roster. It’s all too easy to look at the easy buck or two, but at what cost?

Matt gets his snippers out again

I saw this thread over at TODP http://theotherdarkplace.com/mboard/index.php?topic=15272.0 and had no idea the thread had gotten so-err, short.

Seems the new Barker book is being published by Bad Moon Books, in several editions to gouge your wallet. This is a company run by a well known (and absurdly proud) bigot and homophobe. He’s made no bones about his hate for gays, has called people faggot on SL and harrassed JReitan to no end over some books. however he has no qualms about making money off a well known faggot to line his own pockets. I guess if there’s enough money to be made it doesn’t matter who you fuck. so much for upholding your principles.

Principles, or lack of is where Matt comes in. Seems he’s snipped every post pointing out the homophobia of this publisher and calling Matt out for it. Typical Matt behavior. Proclaim to not tolerate hate speech, yet snip everything that challenges it. As a gay man, I’m deeply embarrassed that I’m part of the same community as Matt.

Matt, if you can’t deal with criticism, it’s time to hang up your crotchless panties. You sir, are pathetic.
