Saying farewell to a hobby, part two
2 days ago
I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and to see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.
"Authors have choices...it's no longer a small list of four publishers in the library world that we all have to choose from. This is a good thing, and I think will result in more being published, and what is published will be of a higher quality and closer to the author's original intentions."So if more books are published they will be of higher quality? What's the rationale for that? I've personally done original cataloging on some of those lovely iUniverse published titles, and frankly, they suck. I remember one book that took great pains in the foreward to point out that the book had not been edited in any way from the author's original manuscript, as though somehow this made the book better. I'm telling you, some people just can't write!
