The Tor.com writer of the current Wheel of Time project has some weird stuff going on Cannoli Send a noteboard - 12/03/2020 05:23:27 AM

Sylas K Barrett was not the name he used when he started reading The Wheel of Time and blogging about it. But Tor.com has apparently retconned his old name out of existence, re-crediting all his posts as Sylas K Barrett (although in the first article he introduces himself as Kelsey Jefferson Barrett). Then, a few months ago, he revealed that he had not been posting for a while because "We could have used some of that Aes Sedai healing in the Sylas household these past few weeks" and "my darling counterpart and Tor.com’s own Emmet Asher-Perrin had to have emergency brain surgery".

Emmet is the name now credited with all the work formerly attributed to Emily, who I am like 90% certain I have ridiculed mentioned on this MB in the past. I'm fairly certain 'needing brain surgery' is something that should not surprise me about this Asher-Perrin person in the least.

So a few months ago, we have a Kelsey Jefferson Barrett and an Emily Asher-Perrin, who are 'counterparts' and apparently share a household, and now go by Sylas & Emmet.

I cannot WAIT until he gets to "Lord of Chaos" and meets Aran'gar!

Trans people exist, Cannoli. You're going to have to either accept this or die mad at the world. *NM* - 13/03/2020 02:46:37 AM 19 Views
He seems inordinately interested in other people's genitals and gender identity, no? *NM* - 13/03/2020 02:55:18 AM 10 Views
He is too late. Soon my kind will have our own emoji flag. Then our reign of terror shall begin. *NM* - 13/03/2020 04:46:12 AM 11 Views
