like a woman, he works his way into my heart, and only later do i discover the horrible truth

Curious about the old man clutching at papers a couple of posts down, I google Frederik Pohl and get his Wikipedia page, where I learn a terrible fact:

In the mid-1970s, Pohl acquired and edited novels for Bantam Books, published as “Frederik Pohl Selections”; the most notable were Samuel R. Delany’s Dhalgren and Joanna Russ’s The Female Man.

Dhalgren

Now, I know who’s to blame.
