So why doesn't Benny Russell just sell his DS9 stories to one of the other science fiction magazines? Herb Rossoff mentions Galaxy Magazine, and Galaxy'seditor would have been happy to run a story like "Deep Space Nine", no matter what race the space station's commander was.

Although politically more in-sync, perhaps, H. L. Gold was known for being rather difficult or downright irascible. The episode made the magazines out to be more of a "studio system" than seems at all reasonable, but it is true some writers had great difficulty transitioning to a different editor. It was a stretch on its part, but it's not impossible then for an author to think "if I can't sell this story to X, I just can't sell it." Such a thing still happens from time to time. (And stories with an African-American protagonist were actually not too common in SF at that time. Black characters were generally treated respectfully in old SF, but they tend to be supporting or from Africa)--T. Anthony (talk) 09:37, 24 December 2007 (UTC)
Is it me, or is the notion of a sci-fi story where the surprising twist is that the protagonist is black, and thus being harder to get away with printing, rather reminiscent of the case of Judgement Day?
Not suggesting the inclusion of anything that isn't independently sourced, but can any of you find any info on this? Haven't found anything myself, but it looks ludicrously obvious. 220.127.116.11 (talk) 21:59, 2 April 2008 (UTC)
It leapt to my mind too... —Tamfang (talk) 20:14, 11 October 2012 (UTC)
