as some of you know, bookthug recently changed its name to book*hug, because they decided their name was too racist. I'm not making this up. and you know who paid for the rebranding? Ontario taxpayers, through the OMDC.
Bookthug, which gets hundreds of thousands of dollars per year from the government to publish books no one wants, changes its name to impress its friends (I.e. its authors). and taxpayers get stuck with that bill
this... *this* is what's wrong with cdn publishing
