Singapore Library Bans Dark City!

Dark City is too dark! Prissy librarians can't handle the graphic prose of Xeus's collection of short stories:
Would you believe it? I've been banned by the Singapore National Library. They refused to stock my book in all their branches, citing 'It's too explicit and graphic" after reading a few chapters.

The outrage!

At least I haven't been banned here by our own Dewan Bahasa and Pustaka. They took 5 copies to keep as 'National Heritage.' I'm not sure I can quite call Dark City a national heritage, but at least I can count on my own countrymen/librarians to support me.
Remind me to rewind my clock to 1950 whenever I'm in the vicinity of the Singapore National Library. Kudos to our local librarians for having the stomach to stock such an "explicit and graphic" book!

  2. True! At least we know our librarians can be supportive!
