After reading the third “Planet France” cheese article on Strange Horizons, I had to write an email to the Editor in Chief, copying the Articles Editors, because the article is chock full o’ misinformation about French culture. And some things are totally wrong, as in wrong as wrong gets.
If they don’t do something about it, I’m going to have to pull my fiction submission. I love my French partner and his family too much to even entertain the idea of letting something of mine appear in a publication that promotes stereotypes and misinformation.
We’ll see what happens. My fingers are crossed they’ll do the right thing. (Whatever that might be, I’m not sure, but I’ll know it when I see it.)
A bientôt !
