That's fine by me - the only author behavior I'm really interested in is
"Pratchett writes books really fast" and so does Seanan McGuire, for that
matter. Knowing that an author is a flaming misogynist or homophobe
generally means I won't $pay for books and support the author, but it
doesn't hit my reviews unless said views come across in the book.
