On March 20th, the Chinese government ordered the destruction of our books. Although the printer returned our deposit, we need to find another printer and this will result in a delay in fulfillment. We are committed to completing the print run and fulfillment."

Take note out there you socialism/communism lovers. This is what happens when you give your freedom away or lose it and let the government have control.


And socialism isn't same thing as communism :p And even then, socialism is wide range of different political beliefs, so assuming its synonym for communism is really insulting. Don't people in Internet know that democratic socialism is strongly opposed to stalinism and such?


Looks like agents of Delta Green did something to contain books detailing hypergeometry from contaminating the United States.

But what a devastating blow to both backers and creators. But it's a good example of how China can influence the media we consume here in the U.S.


Socialism/Communism... it is not too long ago when there were religious group advocating the same for similar books. They just did not have the power to enforce it. Some of them are still around.
