Fuckin' Quintana... that creep can roll, man. @ 05:05 pm

Alternate Subject: "How is Marion Zimmer Bradley like the Catholic Church?"

Why does the internet insist on telling me things that I didn't know and didn't really want to know?

MZB's second husband was a sex offender. With a record. He served two years in Chino (death commuted his 10 year sentence). And MZB was rather incurious about what was going on.

(I should note that the author of the latter site (SF author Stephen Goldin) is not entirely objective inasmuch as his stepson was molested by MZB's husband.)

The testimony excerpts are... pretty alarming, and I assume Goldin couldn't have faked those.

I loved her books (the ones she wrote, not the later ones) when I was in high school and college, but there was always something that bugged me about them, this weird coldness. Maybe that's related somehow.

There is definitely a dark side to the whole fandom/RenFaire/specfic subculture(s). That's mostly who I hung out with until grad school, and I saw it in action.

Huh...sounds like JN from Enigma.

Yes, there's a dark side to fandom, certainly. This Limbo! game at Intercon is going to be interesting.
