The Sword and Laser: Do Readers Have the Right to Delete Swear Words?


In this episode of The Sword and Laser podcast, we share our final thoughts on The Goblin Emperor, kick off our April pick, Wyrd Sisters by Terry Pratchett, and we discuss why some author names are bigger than their titles. But what really gets this episode going is the debate about whether a reader has the right to "clean up" an author's language.

The Sword and Laser (S&L) is a science fiction and fantasy-themed book club podcast hosted by Veronica Belmont and Tom Merritt. The main goal of the club is to build a strong online community of science fiction / fantasy buffs, and to discuss and enjoy books of both genres. For show notes and previous episodes, head here.
