The Best "Entry Level" Science Fiction Books to Convert Your Friends
from the article that you linked to: "Characters as young as 12 years old are married and engage in the act of "stork summoning," which is playfully omitted with an ellipsis. There is also an unhealthy preoccupation with young girls' panties and what color they might be. I never really thought there was anything wrong with it as a kid, because I was roughly the same age as the characters in question and I found the whole thing quite titillating." wouldn't you say that's an interesting statement? the young reader found it tittilating. he enjoyed it. i can't speak for you of course but i, like the writer of that quote, was sexual by the time i was 12. i didn't have sex then (my young self would say - unfortunately)... but i was a sexual being. i thought about sex and fantasized about such activity as much or more than i do as an adult. is it then a crime to write about that as an older person? you said: "But his books are VERY popular with underage girls.
