Superversive Press Statement Regarding Current SFWA Leadership

It is with a heavy heart that I feel compelled to issue a statement from Superversive Press. After the behaviour of Science Fiction Writers of America’s (SFWA) president Cat Rambo on Twitter (@Catrambo) in response to the revelations contained in Moira Greyland Peat’s book The Last Closet: The Dark Side of Avalon. Superversive Press is stunned that a leader of an organisation like SFWA could have such a shockingly callous and dismissive attitude.

It is simply unconscionable that anybody could treat the horrific sexual abuse of an innocent child as a matter worthy of such flippant disdain.

Superversive Press would encourage all people of good conscience to call for the immediate removal of Cat Rambo as SFWA president, and Superversive Press has no interest in working with people who share Cat Rambo’s indifferent attitude towards child sexual abuse committed by writers the SFWA has honoured and awarded. Who knows what other crimes she would ignore, defend or cover up for writers the SFWA approves of?
