Fiction & Rape

There's something Seanan McGuire refuses to do to her characters ... and I think I need to check out her books now.

In the comments, nancylebov references a very interesting article from TOR: A need to deal wounds: Rape of men in Cherryh’s Union-Alliance novels. You should note that this is specifically the rape of male characters by female characters. The lead exhibits are Signy Mallory in Downbelow Station (spec. with regard to Josh Talley) and Ariane Emory I in Cyteen.

This entry is also posted at Dreamwidth. Comment at either location, as you prefer.

I definitely fall into the "don't" category on her prose style. But I tend to avoid books with that much in the way of rape and consent issues anyway (I gave up on Octavia Butler PDQ, and I liked her prose style and worldbuilding, for the most part).

I wish I could like Cherryh, because space stations, but alas.
