Jason Sanford on the lax security on Goodreads:
It is concerning that authors can be impersonated and trolled in this way. As an author, I tend to avoid the site anyhow, and as a reader the reviews can be pretty random, so I don't set much store by them unless I know the blogger's tastes. This sort of thing devalues it further.
The Wandering Shop is a Mastodon instance initially geared for the science fiction and fantasy community but open to anyone. We want our 'local' timeline to have the feel of a coffee shop at a good convention: tables full of friendly conversation on a wide variety of topics. We welcome everyone who wants to participate, so long as you're willing to abide by our code of conduct.
