In Which I Post Just to Say, "What He Said"

I'd been saving this SF Signal post about "International Science Fiction Reshelving Day" -- coming up quickly on the calendar; it's next Wednesday -- because I wanted to rain scorn and bile on the idea.

But I don't need to, since the estimable Charles Tan has already done so.

So, to repeat: what Charles said. And in spades. It's a remarkably stupid idea on several levels, and not nearly as clever as it thinks it is.

Even better -- the originator of the idea saw the error of his ways and canceled it altogether.

Oh dear, must not let the SF cooties get into general fiction.

Anyway, I am reminded of a friend who worked in one of the long departed DC bookstores who suggested getting rid of ALL categories in fiction. Just have a fiction section. Classics, westerns, romances, Sf, etc etc all together.

The store owners declined the suggestion.
