In a response to a law passed in England which makes it illegal to publish literature which glorifies terrorism (even fictionally), Farah Mendlesohn decided to create an anthology of works which did just that. Why? Quite simply for freedom of speech. I’ll just say that censorship in any form, I believe, is a dangerous thing, most especially in the arts because art is often where progressive ideas are born, and where is society without progression?
James Trimarco, of our writers group, Altered Fluid, sent me this cover image recently. I quite like it. The anthology is due out in January, and James will have a story in it.
