      Seeing this reminds me how douchey some people can be. It’s no wonder publishing still drags around the ivory tower imagery.

      #18 – “Brilliant – 25 years ahead of it’s time – NO” Why would you not want to publish the next thing? You want yesterday’s thing? Yesterday’s thing was aversion to ebooks, look where that got you.

      #5 – “Too brilliant – NO” Go fuck yourself.

      It’s not even my book and this hurts so much.

      Funny the Lish, bumping from 21 to 7 … important enough to cause renumeration. Be curious to know what crossed out part said. 

      Also “Keeper of the Ghosts”?!

      Yeah, that subtitle is interesting. I wonder who decided to scrap it?

      Am I the only person that thought this would be some sort of list by Wittgenstein rejecting possible mistresses? And was disappointed when it was not?
