Ranty

The Hammer and the Blade - Paul S. Kemp Broken Angels - Richard K. Morgan

I feel pretty ranty about woman and rape/threats in fantasy/sci-fi tonight. What the fuck is wrong with authors that can imagine magic swords, demons and downloading personalities needing to have a big fat threat of violence against women--specifically--in their books? I can usually shrug off the annoyances, but its the second major book offense in a week, and I'm pretty fucking annoyed.
