Let's just admit it: authors are annoying. Hell, I'm probably annoying you right now. (It's like I'm psychic or something, right?)

Which is not to say authors are not also sometimes criminally malfeasant. That also happens, as I outlined here at some length. But I don't want to get into the truly... Read more of this blog post »
