I’m a capitalist, so I believe in voting with my wallet. The furor over Elizabeth Moon’s harmless commentary has compelled me to (once again) put my money where my mouth is. I went down to the Barnes & Noble today and spent way too much cash on a stack of books — including three titles from Elizabeth Moon:
The Speed of Dark
Marque and Reprisal
Literary near-term SF, military SF, and heroic fantasy. Seemed like a good sampling of Ms. Moon’s talents. I have heard nothing but good about her from lots of people I trust to know my tastes, and to know what they’re talking about. If nothing else, it’s a sharp poke in the eye to everyone who slagged Moon on her LiveJournal and threatened to not buy her.
Sometimes, as a consumer, you just have to stand up against punks.
Hooah, Ms. Moon. Looking forward to reading you.
