Welcome to the New Dangerous Visions: "Forbidden Thoughts"

Forbidden ThoughtsThe folks at Superversive Press just released Forbidden Thoughts for Kindle, and, well, I'll let the blurb do the pitching:

You are not supposed to read this book.
You are not supposed to think about reading this book.
In fact, just plain thinking at all is unacceptable.
You have been warned....

From hilarious to horrifying to dangerously insightful, a selection of stories that must not be told, for they slaughter the sacred cows of our age.

Do you dare read them?

Stories by Nick Cole, John C. Wright, Sarah A. Hoyt, Brad R. Torgersen, Vox Day and more…

Non-fiction articles by Tom Kratman and Larry Corriea

This collection of stories and articles, as one should expect out of Superversive Press, is intended to be full of fun fiction and alluring articles aimed squarely as those dissatisfied with (and turned off by) the politically-correct, SocJus-converged "mainstream" publishing world of Science Fiction & Fantasy (and related stuff). Many involved are also posting about it today, starting with the publisher's blog and going on to include several of the contributors.

For $5 on Kindle, that's not out of line considering what you get. If you're willing to wait for the print version, that may be your better option depending on how you read what you acquire. (It would be how I want to go, as I prefer to read at home in my late father's comfy chair.)

I'm passing on word (and linking to Amazon's listing of) this anthology because this is a good opportunity to get a taste of a lot of authors who've previously been part of either the Sad Puppies or the Rabid Puppies, and opposing SocJus convergence of both SF/F as a business as well as the fan convention scene wherein this SocJus clique holds sway (something I know well). If you're looking for the good stuff, and despairing that where you used to find it now turns out crap stories pushing propaganda, here's your antidote- and introduction to the host of authors that still produce stuff that is fun first and foremost.
