One of my earlier entries on this blog, The Fluffy Factor, has been accepted to Quail Bell Magazine! Woo!

Also, since a couple of the bloggers I follow have made interesting reexaminations of the cover whitewashing issue, I thought I'd share a good comprehensive one. Also, a nice piece of, "Think again, suckers" for anyone who says that covers featuring people of color don't sell: the explosive success of the recent "Black Issue" of Italian Vogue.

What a fascinating article! Whitewashing an Octavia Butler cover... that's just special. I also like their example of the "whitewashed" dragon cover, which I think exemplifies the lack of creativity that results from not thinking through the cultural underpinnings of your art (even when your art is a book cover.)
