Quotes of the Month:

The books we think we ought to read are poky, dull, and dry;
The books that we would like to read we are ashamed to buy;
The books that people talk about we never can recall;
And the books that people give us, oh, they're the worst of all.


-- Carolyn Wells "On Books"

Resources

The formerly "Useful links" at left, are preserved as they were seven or eight years ago. With all their skidmarks, broken glass and occasional chalk outlines on the pavement, they provide a reminder of how rapidly things change. We offer them as is, as a lesson and an inspiration, while things continue to change....

Also at left is a schedule of meetings of interest to publishers together with the promise of a thought-provoking Time Line, and A Publishing Taxonomy, soon to come.
