Yesterday, we got the following full retraction.
And here’s the press-release, in which she completely ignores the fact that’s she’s been defrauding her readers for months.
I demand Justice!
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Lisa Fary & John Dallaire
Pink Raygun Blasts the Web on February 1st
TUCSON, AZ 2/1/07–
Pink Raygun, the new webzine featuring news, reviews and interviews for fangirls. . . and boys officially launched on February 1st at http://www.pinkraygun.com. Pink Raygun is dedicated to providing women a smart and savvy, yet girly, place to discuss and read about science fiction, fantasy and horror in all of their forms, be it television, movies, books or comics.
“Women need Pink Raygun,” says webzine editor Lisa Fary. “Nearly half of the Scifi Channel’s American viewership is comprised of women because the genre is changing, portraying more strong female characters in roles that have traditionally been played by men and featuring storylines that are more about people”. However, there have been few, if any, publications online or in print that address the growing female audience.
Pink Raygun features interviews with women working in all aspects of scifi, fantsy and horror. Within the first month, the webzine will run interviews with Noel Neill, known as the original Lois Lane, Christine Beiselin, who is the assistant costume designer for the film 300, and Amy Reeder Hadley, creator of Tokyopop’s American manga hit Fool’s Gold.
Other features of Pink Raygun include genre news, a message board forum, opinion pieces addressing issues within scifi, fantasy and horror and an extensive section dedicated to reviews of print and visual media, events, websites and music.
Pink Raygun’s management team is comprised of Lisa Fary as editor and John Dallaire as art director. Lisa Fary is a graduate of the creative writing program at Florida State University and holds an advanced degree in Special Education. Her early exposure to classic Battlestar Galactica in 1979 is largely responsible for her lifelong interest in science fiction and her childhood ambition of being an intergalactic space cowgirl. John Dallaire has over ten years of experience in commercial illustration and graphic design. He does art and illustration work for many of the casinos and resorts in Las Vegas. Together, Fary and Dallaire publish the webcomic, review and opinion site Intergalactic Law.
