Following the premiere of Quiet on Set, the damning docuseries chronicling years of toxic behavior and mistreatment toward child stars, Nickelodeon producer Dan Schneider sought to get ahead of the allegations by issuing a milquetoast apology.

Komarr by Lois McMaster Bujold is a favorite for FyreHaar, because “in this little trade paperback sci-fi mystery novel is…a picture of what it feels like when you reach the last straw and let go of the sunk cost fallacy of a long but no longer good relationship.” Which books have you read and seen a piece of yourself?
