When Jim Mcleod kicked me off the staff of Ginger Nuts of Horror for expressing, in my own space, opinions that millions and millions and millions of other people share, he also deleted all the book reviews I wrote for the site. That does a disservice to the authors whose hard work I promoted, but Social Justice Warriors like Jim Mcleod don’t care about the quality of your content; they care about your opinions, and if those opinions aren’t the right opinions, you’ve got to go. (I also rewrote the Ginger Nuts of Horror About page for him some time ago; it’s possible that he hasn’t gotten around to deleting that yet. Someone should let him know.)
Reader Judge Deadd was kind enough to find Google-cached pages of those deleted reviews, and he went through the effort of gathering them onto one page on Archive.org. Anyone interested in reading those reviews can go over and start clicking. Thank you very much, Judge Deadd!
I’ve included this Facebook screenshot to prove that despite my purging from the site, I did write there once and my contributions were valued. But that was before Jim Mcleod learned that I had different opinions about things that had nothing to do with horror, and subsequently called me, a Jewish man, a Nazi (despite his dishonest claims to the contrary).
Thanks again to Judge Deadd for making my Forbidden Archives so easily available! Now interested readers and the writers whose books I reviewed can find them once again. It’s a shame that Jim Mcleod didn’t respect the book authors who sent him review requests enough to keep those reviews on the site, but at least they’re somewhere now.
