Of late I find myself speculating about the creatures that live miserable existences in the shadows, terribly afraid of the light of Truth and Honor. What is a hag? What is a troll? What do they look like, and why do they insist on wallowing in haggy-trolldom when all it would take is living with enough honor to leave the stench and desperation of draining others dry behind?
I've always held the publishing world in the highest esteem because it brought me the world. Every time I opened a book, moved on through the action packed chapters, I have blessed the many elements that brought this work of imagination into my hands. Imagine my disappointment when I learn there are trolls and hags lurking in the publishing world just waiting to feed off of the creativity of others turning geniuses into indentured slaves.
How can this be? Where are the watchdogs? Can the publishing world not scalpel their way through the Quacks among them?
If any of you reading this blog know WHO police the publishing world, please leave a comment. There are a lot of us out here that would like to know.
