From MWT's Tumblr:


Somebody in a message a while back referred to my “No Spoilers” policy and seeing Seanan McGuire’s post reminded me of it.  I want to clarify–I don’t have a No Spoilers Policy.  I have a Not Telling policy.

I’m Not Telling what’s in the next book.

I’m Not Telling why something was in the last book.

I am Not Telling what things mean.

I am Not Telling anything I haven’t already put on the page.

What I hope is  …  I am Not Telling You What to Think.

This isn’t an easy policy to stick to. I’m always tempted to tell people what I think (about anything, really, don’t let me get started) and I do lapse, especially in small group settings that involve too much caffeine or in some cases, alcohol, and some day when readers have had time to make up their own minds, I expect I’ll loosen up about this. (Like Ray Bradbury, in 40 years I am going to tell you that The Thief was really all about the evils of television.)  I don’t have this policy because it’s the moral high ground.  It’s a personal thing.  I like to make up my own mind about what I read– I want to offer my readers the same space.  I never want something I say to get in the way of you creating the story you want in your own head.

The one in which...

We speculate about Kamet.

We pass around some British scones with jam.

We discuss the geography of a fictional universe for some reason.

Checker's is an evil librarian.

We are reprobates being reprobatish for thirty-six pages of chat log.

A PSA for all reprobates: as we discussed during the chat, reprobate wranglers the mods, [livejournal.com profile] checkers65477 and I, are now on Tumblr. We will be crossposting things from Sounis to help the community and Megan promote the new book

Follow us if you're on Tumblr!

Checker's Eddis, Sounis, Attolia
