GABBLER RECOMMENDS: PG on The Shatzkin Files’ “No, the Big Five are not a cartel and it really ignores reality to label them as one.”

Passive Guy on Shatzkin’s article:

“Everybody who believes that 80% of the authors publishing with Big Publishing are not expected to earn out their advances, please raise your hands.

And the price-fixing that the Price-fix Six engaged in with Amazon is the very definition of cartel behavior.”

GABBLER RECOMMMENDS: The TV show Transparent

Since we are writers who utilize the term (?) – symbol (?) – combined pronoun (?) – “s/he” to hide our genders, this might reveal how much we like those who also break gender norms in their storytelling (or, at the very least, blur the black and white). This show does just that.

Transparent may have a heavy topic, but we found it very easy to wade through. We watched the whole season in one day. That’s why I’m recommending it.

A scene from our favorite episode, when the main character attends a camp for cross-dressers (who turn out to be very unfriendly to women or trans persons).

Gender is unimportant and yet so very important.

Watch it! Tell us what you think!! Tell us what else to watch!!!

Also, don’t forget we have a giveaway going on!
