Sci, see my post above.
The issue was already talked about extensively here. By now, you seem to have conveniently 'forgotten' about it, though.
I recall this thread in which both KRAD and Lonemagpie assert that it's nothing so dramatic as an author blacklist, just editors' preferences on who they want to work with.

And this thread, where it came out that because of the editorial office's ongoing chaos during their bouts of staff turnover, they did a poor job communicating continuity requirements to Lonemagpie, resulting in a plot that the remaining editors later decided not to try to reconcile with other books but to instead place in its own continuity.

It's unfortunate the that happened to Indistinguishable From Magic, but I've seen no evidence that any of KRAD's books have been retconned or "nullified." On the contrary, KRAD's books, characters, and concepts have continued to have important influence on and play important roles in subsequent books, and show all indications that they will continue to do so.

The idea that Ed Schlesinger is twirling his handlebar mustache while plotting ways to make KRAD's work disappear -- perhaps while tying Nell Fenwick to the railroad tracks? -- is just silly.
