Brian Flemming summarizes how books with an atheist perspective are negatively received by Publishers Weekly, a very influential publication in the literary world. (Besides being highly respected, PW reviews are often the first ones you see on Amazon.)
Flemming throws I Sold My Soul on eBay in the mix as well.Austin Cline adds, though, that Nica Lalli‘s new book Nothing: Something to Believe In did get some positive attention from PW, but even that review wasn’t void of anti-atheist bias.
I hadn’t noticed this trend before, but it’s definitely something to keep an eye out for in the future.
