Via John Scalzi, the Bitch magazine staff post a reading list of “100 Young Adult books for the Feminist Reader,” and after complaints are raised about the inclusion of Margo Lanagan’s Tender Morsels, they decide to do a feminist impression of the curators at the Smithsonian. A kerfuffle ensues. You may recall a similar flap a couple years back over the inclusion of Lanagan’s short story “The Goosle” in The Del Rey Book of Science Fiction and Fantasy.
I haven’t read Tender Morsels yet, but Lanagan’s Black Juice was one of my most treasured discoveries during my stint as a Tiptree judge. So you may want to check it out. Gal’s obviously got a knack for affecting people.
