slovobooks has been given no choice in the matter. (Further discussed chez Cheryl here, by natural20 here and by dougs here.)
A pretty good example of public relations Fail. It is amusing that on Octocon's committee page, the short bio of the Press Officer states first that he "is looking after PR affairs for Octocon" and then goes on to say that he "feels strongly that most PR people deserve to be liquidated". I think further comment is superfluous.
