    I read a recent debut, The Forever Sea by Joshua Phillip Johnson. It's a good debut, very promising, slightly compromised by the fact that for the first half of the book the main character is unbearably and idiotically reckless in almost every decision. She does learn and it's obviously a deliberate choice but the author did go a bit OTT with it.

    Still, other than that, it pops- the world is fantastic, ships sailing on top of a miles-deep sea of grass, magical fires make them go, lots of weird and wonderful supporting cast, piracy, mystery, conflict and derring do. Plus a framing story that puts an added impetus to the main narrative.

    Worth reading, but also worth noting that it is a literal plot point that it doesn't really finish properly.

    Yeah, he was a terrible choice for Deadshot for that exact reason. Also part of why the I Am Legend movie fucked with so much, I imagine.

    If the easily verifiable factual statements were inaccurate, they would be libelous, so I doubt they are. They're not 'just as much an opinion as anything else'.

    Both sides of the argument present seemingly factual, verifiable statements, and both sides are saying things that are libellous if untrue.

    and no Will Smith (I believe)

    Yeah, he was gonna be but scheduling conflicts meant no. They were gonna just recast him with Idris Elba but, fairly late in the day, decided to rework Elba's character into Bloodsport to leave the door to Will Smith to come back if this is a success and the opportunity comes up later. Although it seems a little odd coz Will Smith's character hasn't got a lot to do with comic Deadshot and Elba's character seems nothing to do with comic Bloodsport, who's a fairly minor character I've never read but reportedly is a mass-muderer obssessed with Vietnam and deluding himself into thinking he was a vet of that war, something there's no sign of in this story. So you've just got two guys playing basically the same person who is not really the person either of them are supposedly playing.

    He definitely deserves to be cancelled for grooming Soon-Yi but also that article is (1) from Quilette so not a good source for good-faith arguments and (2) just as much an opinion as anything else out there from anyone who wasn't actually there.
