Double Standards?

Mark Samuels recently complained on the Ramsey Campbell Message Board that he was being deliberately excluded from an anthology edited by Joel Lane and Allyson Bird because of a well known clash between Mark and Allyson some time ago over her award-winning collection, Bull Running for Girls. The replies Mark got on the board certainly strike me as strange from someone editing a book against racism (ie discrimination). A certain set of double standards strikes me there.

For the record, I wasn't invited to contribute to this anthology either, though I was asked to mention it in Prism, which I have.
