I’m going to keep this simple, gang: Go read Catherynne M. Valente‘s blog post “The End of the World as We Know It (and I Feel Fine).”
Go read it
Because it is the best evaluation of self-publishing and e-publishing and traditional publishing and the future of books and everything else we all care about so much (well, you and me, anyway) that I have seen in a long time. It might even be better than Margaret Atwood’s awesome keynote address I linked to about a year ago.
This is The Way Things Are, and no bones about it.
Unless you want to pick bones. In which case, leave me a comment!
(PS: Apparently, this is a week for milestones — this post if my 500th post!)
