Beware: genre authors bite!

A group of 85 genre* authors have signed a letter addressed to the BBC about the corporation's glossing over of a whole gamut of books during their World Book Night schedule.

The protest, which was led by Stephen Hunt (of SF Crowsnest fame, amongst other things) has been reported on in the Bookseller and elsewhere.

Among the signatories of the aforementioned letter were a number of writers known to me personally along with my editor Jon Oliver of Abaddon and Solairs Books. Movers and shakers all, if really is a case of who you know in this world...

* That's science-fiction, fantasy and horror, in case you were wondering.
