An amendment.

In yesterday's post regarding portrayal of rape in fiction, I lumped Guy Gavriel Kay's The Summer Tree in with the filth that is Stephen Donaldson. I've since been told by a few people that the rape in that, though seemingly tacked on at the end, does have major repercussions in the next two books. Which I hadn't read, because it seemed, like I said yesterday, that it was a throwaway "Oh, I forgot about this character, let's traumatize her, there we go, end of book" thing.

I will take y'all's word for it. Mea culpa.
