The Russian edition of Shades of Magic has been my favorite. This week I learned that they redacted the entire queer plot w/out permission.

I know. It appears only option is to cancel the entire contract.

I'm so sorry V, I did wonder how they would manage the translation as LGBT content is illegal... really sad *sends hugs*

It's not illegal actually. They are just forced to put on an age mark 18+ on any queer content.

They chose to illegally edit and redact in breach of contract rather than put an age mark on it.

Sorry, V. That's fucking awful. Seeing your series published in Russia was heartening and this is not.

I respect this decision. It's honorable. Your voice and that topic should never be censored.

It seems my only option is to have the entire series contract cancelled. I'm heartbroken.

Outrageous. And very sad--a loss for Russian readers. Does it not breach contract?
