    Republican representative, and organizer of the author's invitation, was disappointed over the reasoning for declining the honor.

    Quotes were taken from the Texas Tribune's article and the Boston Globe's article.

    Favorite writers, so I'm glad he's a good guy. (Accidentally posted halfway through)

    The more hateful/judgemental states are sure going to be on a deficit with all the creators turning them down. It's probably one of the less rude ways to teach a lesson, and I hope it eventually gets through the legislature's thick skulls.

    Also, he has a genderfluid main character in magnus chase too. I'm predicting that he/she will be magnus's love interest as well. Which is exciting to say the least. Also, solangelo is my otp above all otps. They are soooo adorable!

    I love Rick Riordan so much. Things like this are what give me faith in humanity.

    Man, another reason to read the Magnus Chase series. I don't think either of my schools has them, though?
