that ending of AHS: Coven though…
Diversity (or lack thereof) among New York Times bestsellers:
We chose to look at the most general bestsellers list, Combined Print & E-Book Fiction (adult), and looked at the top ten books for all 52 weeks of 2012. The results were staggering, if not surprising:
Only three out of the 124 authors who appeared on the list during 2012 (less than three percent) are people of color: Sylvia Day, E.L. James, and Tess Gerritson.
See the full study here. Also worth noting that there were no (no!) African American authors on the list and that of the three series by authors of color that made the list, only one contains a main character of color.
The study focuses on 2012 but I’m betting when we get to the end of 2013 it won’t look much different…

where’s the fuckin ice
I still believe Iceland and Greenland sat down in a meeting one day and it started with
"You know what’ll piss people off"
Actually, it was the Vikings. They discovered both Iceland and Greenland, and when they realized the weather, named them opposites to confuse their enemies. So the enemies would go to Greenland, expecting it to be all pretty and green and good for farming, but it was all ice. Vice versa for Iceland.
