I'm surprised not to see a lot of flap across the fandom about the new Kindle Worlds ... Tolkien isn't included of course, but are there others that are allowed that we have here?

I honestly thought that was very odd given how much porn or excuse me "erotica" amazon is already selling.

in each of the world guidelines, they independently specify sex between certain characters is ok or what have you... so i think it would have to be pretty offensive to get banned, but who knows.

I'm not the target audience. I haven't heard of most of these and the summaries are plain meh.

It depends on where you look for it Smile Twitter, Tumblr, dreamwidth ect was quite abuzz with it with lots of flapping and angry reactions.

I am not sure where to start to show you all the flapping & flailing, but I think Fanlore gives a good summary and the OTW's response is also worth to read.

I think it will depend on the world and the restrictions imposed by the licence holder. They set the guidelines and the writers are allowed to colour inside the lines.
