Today’s reader topic comes from QSFer J. Scott Coatsworth:
Some readers prefer a certain amount of violence in their fantasy and paranormal novels. Is the violence necessary to these genres? It doesn’t have to be physical violence, one of the things I like about Ellen Kushner’s Swordspoint series and Melissa Scott’s Astreiant, is the kind of social violence that can be inflicted and those results.
