posted on 2007-11-03 23:54 EDT
The Californian publisher Iris Print has cancelled its October launch of BL Twist, a "magazine devoted to western boys' love in all its form." Iris is refunding subscriptions orders. A sample preview issue of the magazine was to have been available at the Yaoi-Con 2007 convention at the end of October. The planned graphic novel Home on the Range by C.B. Potts and Victor Floko is still listed on Iris Print's website for an October release, despite the publisher's lack of presence at Yaoi-Con and no major retailer reporting receipt of copies.
