I’m sure the title of this post is terrible for SEO (search engine minimisation??) but it is going to be a grab-bag of things I’m catching up on. If you would like to get updates on writing stuff in REAL TIME, Twitter is generally my first port of call for reporting book news (I am zenaldehyde!) and I cross-post to Facebook as well nowadays, though the posts aren’t identical because Facebook permits me to be as verbose as I naturally am. I can be found here on Facebook: my profile is public so anyone can follow it, but if you’d like to be friended do drop me a message to let me know who you are.

On to the news!

Sorcerer to the Crown: galleys, giveaways and more!

Ace/Roc sent me galleys of the book! My gosh. It looks like a REAL BOOK. And it is covered with quotes by authors I admire hugely!

SorcererGalley

Naomi Novik! Ann Leckie! Courtney Milan! Karen Lord! Charles Stross! Kate Elliott (on the other side with the dragon, you can’t see it in this picture)!

And as of today, awardwinning YA author Justine Larbalestier, who says Sorcerer is:

Georgette Heyer meets Anthony Trollope with some Edward Said and a very big dash of feminism. Romance, magic, frocks, intrigue and lots of politics … I was in heaven. More please!

If you’re in the US, you can enter the Penguin BEA 2015 sweepstakes for a chance to win five new releases from Penguin Random House, which just might include Sorcerer to the Crown and/or Aliette de Bodard’s fabulous new novel The House of Shattered Wings. You don’t have to be at BEA to sign up — you just have to be resident in the States. (If you’re not in the US and want Aliette’s book, you can join the 500 people jostling for a free copy over at her own ARC giveaway!)

Otherwise, watch this space, because I am going to do a galley giveaway here soon. Subscribers to my mailing list will get a MAGICAL ADVANTAGE, so sign up now! It’s a new release mailing list so you don’t get regular news when you’re on it — I just send out an email when I’ve got new fiction out that you can read or order. Here’s a previous example.

The House of Aunts and Naomi Novik’s Uprooted

Speaking of writers I admire hugely, Naomi Novik wrote a really kind post about The House of Aunts on Tor.com:

A New Reality: The Optimism of Zen Cho

You feel as you read that the author wants you to be happy, even if she is not going to lie to you to make you feel more comfortable. … As a reader, when I feel a writer has those goals, it creates a kind of trust that carries me along with them. Even when they take me to difficult or uncomfortable or sad places, I still feel they are doing so because it’s where the story belongs, and even then still with the underlying desire to give satisfaction.

Naomi links this to fanfic writers and writing, and I thought it was interesting because it’s precisely this quality that I like in Naomi’s work. (This must sound like the most sickening logrolling! But long-term fandom friends will vouch for the fact that I was reading and squealing over Naomi’s stories since I was 16. (I actually went to look at the earliest story by her that I remember reading when it was being posted, and that was in 2000, so I was actually 14. 14 years old.))

I spent most of her newest book Uprooted with every part of me clenched in terror lest everything would not turn out OK, but I also simultaneously knew that everything would not only be OK but more than OK — marvellously, eucatastrophically more-than-OK. And the author saw me through, as I knew she would. You should read Uprooted.

Interviews and roundtables

The Star interviewed me, KL Noir: Yellow editor and Cyberpunk: Malaysia writer Kris Williamson, and romance author RodieR about the increasing popularity of genre fiction in Malaysia:

Is genre fiction picking up steam with Malaysian readers?

Our books are all finalists in the Popular-The Star Readers’ Choice Awards. Voting closes on 31 May so you still have a couple of days to vote for the winners!

And I spoke with Charles Tan, Aliette de Bodard, M Sereno, Bogi Takács and JY Yang for a roundtable on “diversity” and the kind of conversations we’d like to have for the Book Smugglers’ SFF in Conversation feature:

On Diversity

Actual fiction (kind of)

Finally, my new post went up at Where Ghost Words Dwell today! This is a group project I’m doing with a bunch of other cool SFF writers, where we string our discarded writing together on a blog, along with links and images. Today’s contribution is a piece of lost text from The House of Aunts:

At age 16, in Lubuk Udang

You can check out this explanation to get an idea of what the project is about, or better yet, read the whole blog through.

AlephOne of the first ideas which came to David and me as we began preparing to take on the role of co-chairs of ALEPH (see A new chapter in my life with Jewish Renewal) was a listening tour.

We want to spend our first year as co-chairs doing a lot of listening: to people who are a part of ALEPH now; to people who have been part of ALEPH far longer than we have; to people who were part of ALEPH but have moved into other circles; to people who are not yet part of ALEPH but are nevertheless doing the work of renewing Judaism and who might become part of our extended hevre (fellowship) in time.

We've developed some big questions which we hope will guide and inform the coming year. Among them are: What do you most cherish about Renewal that you hope the future will carry forward?  What would you jettison or change?  What new focus would you recommend in coming years? How can we cultivate a shared pan-Renewal "ecosystem" for continued spiritual and organizational innovation? 

We're going to be listening, and cultivating responses, in a variety of ways: collecting stories and hopes asynchronously (which is to say: you can send us your reflections and your answers to our big questions in your own time, in written form), scheduling video chats with people who want to talk about Jewish Renewal's history and its future, and meeting with people around the country at a variety of different gatherings over the year to come.

We just shared a long post -- containing information about the ALEPH / Jewish Renewal Listening Tour, our list of Big Questions, and three ways that You (Yes, You!) Can Participate -- here: A Listening Tour, Big Questions, and the Next Turning of Jewish Renewal. I hope you'll go and read... and if you have thoughts in response to our questions, I hope you'll share those with us too.

Posted by Fred Clark

The Duggar family of Tontitown, Arkansas, are a large clan of fundamentalist Baptists who have gained celebrity due to the “reality” television program 19 Kids and Counting on basic cable’s TLC channel. Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar are parents to 19 children — a result of their patriarchal, “Quiverfull” religion.

The TV show purportedly revealing the daily reality of this large family helped turn them into spokespeople for and mascots of the religious right — avatars of “family values” and a religiously motivated sexual righteousness. The Duggars have leveraged that fame to support various right-wing political causes — fighting to ban same-sex marriage, gay rights, antidiscrimination laws protecting LGBT people, access to contraception, and legal abortion. The family’s oldest son, Josh, went to work for the anti-gay religious right lobbying and fundraising group, the Family Research Council.

All of that blew to smithereens last week when celebrity-gossip rag In Touch magazine published police reports revealing that Josh Duggar sexually abused several children when he was a teenager, and that his parents waited for more than a year before notifying authorities.

This is not the first time that prominent religious right figures have been exposed as sexual predators and hypocrites after making a career out of demonizing LGBT people while celebrating their own sexual “purity” and moral superiority. Nor will it be the last.

Here’s a round-up of some insightful commentary and reflection in response to the Josh Duggar scandal.

In Touch Weekly, “Jim Bob Duggar Didn’t Report Son Joah’s Alleged Sex Offenses for More Than a Year”

“Jim Bob Duggar waited more than a year after his son, Josh, confessed to sexually molesting several female minors before contacting police … based on information contained in the official police report.”

• Libby Anne, “What You Need to Know about the Josh Duggar Police Report”

“Sexual abuse should always always always be reported to the authorities immediately, even when the perpetrator is a minor.”

• Sarah Posner, “Josh Duggar and the Purity Lie”

“The Duggars are no ordinary spokespeople for the religious right; they are super-spokespeople. For years, they have been held up as exemplars of biblical living, of devotion to Christ, and of, especially, homespun honest living and sexual purity. It’s long been obvious to many that this is a product of marketing and packaging, not reality. But now no one can pretend anymore.”

• Sarah Pulliam Bailey and Michelle Boorstein, “How do evangelicals view the Duggars? It’s complicated.”

“When the Duggars first appeared on television in 2008, some evangelicals saw a fringe image of themselves, perhaps something like the experience of Mormons watching the reality show Sister Wives, about a polygamous family.”

• Melissa @ Permission to Live, It’s Not Just The Duggars”

“What is truly horrifying, is that after setting their kids up for this to happen, Josh Duggar’s parents pushed it under the rug, kept things in house, and didn’t get help for either the molester or the children who were molested.”

• Katie Mulligan, “Child Sexual Assault”

“We have not figured out how to deal with child sexual assault.”

• Ken Tucker, “Josh Duggar, Molestation, and the Hypocrisy of Reality TV”

“How does one look at the cheery faces of Jim Bob and Michelle and not think about the degree of their complicity in keeping this ‘storyline’ — for that’s what all real events become in this TV genre — suppressed?”

• Timothy Swanson, “The Duggars: How Fundamentalism’s Teachings on Sexuality Create Predatory Behavior”

“All I needed to know was that they followed Gothard’s teachings about sex and gender, and I knew that it was more likely than not that a sex scandal would surface sooner or later.”

• Hemant Mehta, “After He Was Accused of Child Molestation, Josh Duggar’s Family Did Everything Wrong”

“Turns out Josh Duggar is far more dangerous to children than the LGBT people he has demonized for so long.”

HuckAndJosh

• David Clohessy, “Huckabee defends sex offender; SNAP responds”

“It’s painful when some misunderstand and misapply the notion of forgiveness in ways that lead to putting other innocent kids and vulnerable adults in harm’s way again, even in cases of proven, serial, predatory behavior by dangerous men.”

Christian Post, “Duggar Family Continues Receiving Evangelical’s Support Amidst Josh Duggar’s Molestation Scandal; Training Ministry Says ‘Everyone Has Sinned’”

“‘Having met the Duggar family and been in their home, I have great admiration and appreciation for how Jim Bob and Michelle instilled Christian values in the lives of each of their children,’ … Evangelism Explosion International president John B. Sorensen said in a statement.”

• Hemant Mehta, “Ray Comfort: Josh Duggar Wasn’t Really a Christian When He Molested Those Girls”

“If this is the sort of morality Christians have — where the only thing preventing them from stealing or raping or committing any number of crimes is their fear of God — it tells you how fucked up their worldview is.”

• David Badash, “Only ‘Fear Of Consequences’ Keeps Us From Sin: Jessa Duggar’s Father-in-Law Defends Josh”

“Michael Seewald penned a lengthy essay Sunday, quoting Scripture, and offering disturbing excuses.”

• Mary DeMuth, “In faith communities like the Duggars, abuse victims are encouraged to be filled with grace. It’s not that simple.”

“Often we see in communities of faith that victims are admonished to be grace-like, offering instant forgiveness to their abuser as if it could be doled out like a trinket or candy. And when someone is pressured to ‘be like Jesus’ and forgive swiftly, often this pressure causes harm.”

• Kathryn Elizabeth, “Josh Duggar says he’s sorry. So what?”

“This isn’t penitence, it’s not repentance, it’s what child molesters do. Rewrite the narrative so that in the end the audience feels sorry for them and forgets about their victims.”

• Samantha Field, “How Josh Duggar is getting away with it”

“This is what purity culture does. More than anything else, it silences victims.”

• Boz Tchividjian, “A grand deception: The successful response of sex offenders”

“Sexual offenders have perfected a grand deception that sadly seems to work all too well inside faith communities.”

• Carmen Green, “Anna Duggar and the Silencing Power of Forgiveness”

“They are tapping into the belief that no sin is too terrible for God to forgive and the mandate that we must forgive our trespassers as God has forgiven us. Together, these beliefs force victims in this subculture to shut up, sit down, and ‘make peace’ with the people who have wronged them.”

• Libby Anne, “What Did Josh Duggar’s Counseling Look Like?”

“Bill Gothard was outed as a predator of teen girls last year and removed from his leadership position, but the Duggars continue to serve for speakers at ATI conferences. The Duggars’ connection to Gothard and ATI is not incidental or tangential.”

AbusiveAbuseCounseling

• Rebecca Schoenkopf, “How Not to Counsel Your Daughters When They’ve Been Molested by Josh Duggar”

“What we are going to talk about is what the Duggars’ religion — their freaky-deaky, Stepford-meets-Taliban, patriarchal, Quiverfull, homeschooled, isolated, culty, HARMFUL AND DAMAGING religion — teaches them about their girl babies. Because what it teaches is Some Bullshit, and it is Not Okay.”

• Vyckie Garrison, “What Is Quiverfull? Here’s a look inside the Duggars’ dangerous Christian cult”

“The teachings of the Quiverfull lifestyle are spread primarily through the Christian home school movement. Many of the publishing companies which cater to the curriculum needs of the Christian home school community also publish and promote materials which address lifestyle choices regarding biblical family structure, roles, and practices.”

• Vyckie Garrison, “5 demented evangelical teachings that enabled Josh Duggar’s sex crimes”

“My point here is to say that contemporary evangelical Christianity sets ‘biblical families’ up for this sort of disaster.”

• Libby Anne, “Josh Duggar and the Tale of Two Boxes”

“There seems to be an assumption among some social conservatives that because progressives do not see premarital sex as sinful and wrong, they aren’t in any position to criticize Josh Duggar’s actions.”

• Joanna Rothkopf, “Let’s revisit what Michelle Duggar said about LGBT people being child predators”

“I doubt that Fayetteville parents would stand for a law that would endanger their daughters or allow them to be traumatized by a man joining them in their private space.”

• Ahab @ Republic of Gilead, “Josh Duggar Backs Out of Teach Them Diligently Conference”

“I’m relieved that Duggar will not be speaking at the event. However, when I skimmed over the conference workshop schedule, I was disappointed that the topics reflected the unhealthy Christian homeschooling culture in which the Duggars live.”

Or, in less elevated English . . . the dishwasher stopped working, but Himself got it working again.

You have to understand, the dishwasher is the one device standing between me and abject surrender to total household disarray. (As opposed to the merely ordinary household disarray which is the normal state of things around here.) So I was contemplating the unedifying possibility of having to hand-wash all the dishes, and I know from bitter experience how well that always works out for me, and I was feeling pretty much beaten about the head and shoulders by the universe.

So I went from the kitchen into the office, and my face was as the face of despair.

"The dishwasher has stopped working," I said. "I have tried all of the electric outlets, and they are not the problem. Alas!"

"Let me take a look at it," said Himself, rising from his computer.

And lo, he did take a look at it, and caused it to resume its accustomed operations. And I did marvel thereat.

"The overflow shutoff was clogged," he explained. "All I needed to do was unclog it -- it was the first thing that I thought of."

"I love you," I said. "And not merely because you have unclogged the dishwasher."

So now the dishes are once again being made clean, and I am going to try to make pot stickers for dinner.

Meaning, I hasten to say, no disrespect to anybody reading this who happens to have been actually, as opposed to merely metaphorically, beaten about the head and shoulders. Samuel Johnson said that it was bad manners to jest about rope in the house of a man who has been hanged . . . the difficulty these days is that thanks to the power of the internet, there's no telling whose house you may be in at any given moment.

Item Two: “The ongoing legacy of the great satanic sex abuse panic”

As Texas’ top criminal court finally tosses out the convictions of Dan and Fran Keller after 22 years, Radley Balko looks back at the Satanic Panic of the 1980s, which “was pervasive enough to dupe our entire criminal justice system, as dozens of innocent people were sent to prison for crimes for which there was no evidence other than the coerced testimony of kids, and for which those same defendants would later be exonerated.”

The Kellers were finally released from decades of imprisonment, but Texas declined to declare them innocent. Balko shares an excerpt from Judge Cheryl Johnson’s argument for their innocence:

This was a witch hunt from the beginning. The allegations in the indictment were based on the testimony of a three-year-old child who, even before she sporadically attended the applicant’s day-care facility, was in therapy for numerous psychological and behavioral issues. In accusing applicant, she asserted that applicant had come to her house and had cut her dog’s vagina with a chainsaw until it bled, that she was taken to a cemetery, where, after a person dressed like a policeman threw a person in a hole, Daniel Keller shot the person who had been thrown into the hole and cut up the body with a chainsaw while all the children helped, and that she had been put into a swimming pool with sharks that ate babies. She also alleged that applicant served blood-laced Kool-Aid, forced the children to have videotaped sex with adults and other children, sometimes wore white robes and lit candles before hurting the children, and forced the children to watch or participate in the killing and dismemberment of cats, dogs, and a crying baby. According to the complainant, bodies were unearthed in cemeteries and new holes were dug to hide freshly killed animals, an adult passer-by was shot and dismembered with a chain saw, Frances Keller cut off the finger of a gorilla at Zilker Park, and applicant had performed a satanic bone-replacing ritual on one child. And the children were taken on several plane trips, including one to Mexico, where they were sexually abused by soldiers before returning to Austin in time to meet their parents at the day-care facility. In spite of such fantastical claims, which should have produced total incredulity in the police investigators and prosecutors, charges were filed.

Keep in mind, again, that there was no physical evidence to support any of these ridiculously imaginative claims. The Kellers were convicted and imprisoned for crimes that allegedly included dozens of victims who were never identified, never found, never reported missing by anyone anywhere.

How did that happen? Well, partly, as Balko notes, because the courts relied on “expert witnesses” such as Randy Noblitt — a guy who made a living recycling old Mike Warnke fantasies for credulous audiences, police departments, juries and culture-war “moral entrepreneurs.”

WitchunterBut it happened mainly because people wanted to believe in those fantasies. They preferred them to reality. Faced with the choice between living in this world — the real world — and the monster-haunted landscape Judge Johnson describes, millions of people chose the latter. It is, again, just like the imaginative “shared insanity” of fantasy role-playing games — but without the conscious recognition that you’re really just sitting around a folding table in the basement, eating chips and rolling dice.

This fantasy reinforced itself by feeding the same need to imagine that we’re heroic adventurers. Any challenge to the pretense of the “shared insanity” — any skeptical questions about the shark-filled swimming pools, the gorilla fingers, or the bloody Kool Aid would provoke a defensive response lest that heroic illusion should be dispelled.

Any skeptical questions about the reality of these alleged horrors was reinterpreted — and fiercely condemned — as a defense of those same horrors. Questions such as “How did they have time to fly the children to Mexico?” or “Why are there no records of such a flight?” wouldn’t be answered directly because answering them would threaten the fantasy. Instead, anyone asking such questions would be recast as a defender of Satanic ritual abuse by Mexican soldiers. The questions would be answered with a question: “Why are you protecting foreign soldiers who rape and murder American children?”

It’s an all-too-familiar pattern. Anyone who challenges the fantasy framework of heroic opposition to imaginary Satanic baby-killers is dismissed as a co-conspirator of the Satanic baby-killers. (Habeas corpus? What kind of sicko demands to see a dead body?)

Judge Johnson’s use of the phrase “witch hunt” is an important reminder that this moral panic of the 1980s wasn’t unprecedented. Nor has it lacked antecedents. We have always had witch-hunters, witch-finders, witch-sniffers and witch-burners, and the absence of witches has never lessened their fantasy of heroic self-importance.

(Regarding the Kellers and their case, see these earlier posts: “And all his works and pomps” and “Imaginary Satanic baby-killers, real people still in prison.”)

[personal profile] muccamukk
[community profile] femslashficlets's theme this week is texts from last night, which goes from having too narrow a prompt (I have trouble thinking of fills for one-word things) to having rather a wide one (ALL THE TEXTS!) Hmmmm...

Rewatching Lois & Clark (three episodes in, still adorable. And Cat Grant and her terrible self is running up to my favourite character. She's so awfully written I'm perversely rooting for her) has put me in a yen for Mutant X, so I'm swinging through that again as well. Not a revelation: Superhero shows are really white.

Meanwhile, dipping my toe back into DC has ended up badly, again. Though I'm having a good time reading comics sites trying to explain what happened at the end of Convergence and what that means. I think the answer is: "Nobody knows." It may become more clear as the new comics roll out. Or not. I admit to being tempted by a few of the girl comics. It looks like they might actually be going with Diana/Teri over in JL 3001, though I can't quite tell from the preview. I'm getting increasingly sick of Asshole!Clark.

Bloody Jergens though. The latest Booster Gold was legitimately terrible. Granted, it was nice to see Ted and Booster on the same page again, but then spoilers ) And it was just... very much not good. Bah! The Blue Beetle comic with all the Charlton characters was cute anyway.
