Geek Gab: Dunte-Mania

On this week's episode of Geek Gab, we spent a half hour chatting with Hugo-nominated author, editor, and publisher Jeff Duntemann.

Listen in as we talk about possible alternatives to Twitter and Amazon, how tradpub's fate is bound to B&N's, and other indie publishing nerdery.


Also, don't forget to check out Jeff's outstanding hard SF novel The Cunning Blood, which I reviewed previously on this blog.


He also has a new book out that I haven't read yet but looks solid.



P.S. Thanks to everyone who's expressed concern about the status of my Twitter account. No, they didn't outright ban me. That would require a spine.

What happened is that I've voluntarily deactivated my account for a while. The way that Twitter seems to enact shadowbans is by falsely flagging accounts as hacked and applying filters meant to limit the range of spam tweets.

I've read that other users have successfully removed shadowbans by shutting down their accounts and reactivating them, which convinces Twitter's system that the "hack" is over and the rightful owner is back in control of the account. We'll see if the same approach works for me.

In the meantime, here are some books that Twitter found threatening enough to censor.
