  1. Great links, thanks!
    Although I wonder how wokism affects searches on some of these sites – has a link on its home page “LGBTQ Reading Recommendations”

    • yes I was going to send all these apparently terrific links to my friends, and decided to click on a few before I put my reputation out there associated with them.

      Well, I figured “science dot go” would be awful (it brings you to facebook log on, I did not go further) and yah, worldcat I saw the LGBTQXYA nonsense but tried to find Divine Comedy, the first hit was some gay novel but the second was the classic by Dante Alighieri.

      So let’s be careful out there, people. (you get bonus points if you recognize the TV show this line was in every episode)

  2. Watched the Fred Hughes interview you linked. No real surprises in the content, but I’ve been watching the Blanket Fort for a while.

    I did like the question and answer regarding how Raconteur Press gets so many authors interested so quickly, and how that boils down to being open with the authors and treating them right on money and rights, and being open and clear with the information.

    Ian made a great point about how in this day and age, an author shouldn’t have any difficulty getting the question “How many books did I sell?” answered by a publisher. If Raconteur Press can do that, so can the others.

  3. All- Thanks, and yes Tom, knowing what the ‘opposition’ is doing is good too! Thanks Ag!
