In a decision with potentially large ramifications, New York Federal Judge LaShann DeArcy Hall won't dismiss a libel suit against "Shitty Media Men" creator Moira Donegan.
Explaining, the judge says it is possible that Donegan created the entry herself. The judge believes that Elliott should be able to explore whether the entry was fabricated. Accordingly, discovery proceeds, which will now put pressure on Google to respond to broad subpoena demands. The next motion stage could feature a high-stakes one about the reaches of CDA 230.
And now for something completely different…
Just shouting out a congratulations to my friend Lesli, who will be published in a new anthology alongside such greats like Gaiman, Bradbury, Poe.
Keep an eye out y’all for: Psychos: Serial Killers, Depraved Madmen, and the Criminally Insane
Due out in October!
-Think monsters are scary? People are scarier-
Hannibal Lector. Norman Bates. Jason. Serial killers are such a staple of popular entertainment that you know them by name. But surprisingly, there has never been a fiction anthology that compiles all of that depravity in one place. Until now.
In “PSYCHOS: Serial Killers, Depraved Madmen, and the Criminally Insane” Skipp offers a single volume collection includes selections from Neil Gaiman, Robert Bloch, Thomas Harris, Ray Bradbury, and Edgar Allen Poe, along with stories from the most promising crop of new authors in the genre.
While there is no dearth of murders, Skipp has not created a collection of one-note slasher stories. in PSYCHOS, Skipp reached out to authors to find stories concerning all types of criminal insanity, from overwhelmed moms, to bullied teens, to repentant ex-cons to post-apocalyptic white supremacists. Resources at the end of the book include lists of the genre’s best long-form fiction, movies, websites, and writers.
