Given their published policies, I do believe I will help them attain that goal by spending my time supporting writing organizations that don’t discriminate against good writing, however it might be published. Whether the loss of a class of authors, many of whom like myself take their moderating and panel responsibilities seriously, makes the experience better for fans—that is something others will have to evaluate. But it is clear that given their author policies and panel assignment practices, Malice and my current writing are not a good fit.
Perhaps their policies will change; perhaps what I write will change. We never know what the future will bring, but for now, I expect I have attended my last Malice.
