Escalation on the Puppy Front

Written by Natalie Luhrs

I'm a lifelong geek with a passion for books and social justice. And I give absolutely no fucks.

And we all know just how effective Scrappy-Doo was, right?

Oh, for fuck’s sake.

Original post from Peter Grant, endorsement from the wannabe supervillain himself.

As Laura Resnick says at the end of her post:

So I’m more concerned about what persons, organizations, or businesses will be the Puppies’ next target. I didn’t think they would stop with the Hugos, and I’m skeptical they’ll stop with Tor, either.

Indeed. And I know that there is a school of thought that says to deprive assholes of air, but in my experience that doesn’t work in the long term: they just find newer, softer targets. So as far as I’m concerned, the more people calling them out on their bullshit, the better.

So here’s an incomplete list of people published by Tor. Incomplete because I’m writing this on my lunch break, not incomplete because I omitted people for ideological reasons. This is pretty long, so I’m sticking it behind a cut. If you’re so inclined and the budget allows, maybe buy a book on Friday?
