About the Author
I'm a book seller who has been at it all his adult life. Along the way I have been a book, magazine, ezine and newspaper editor and writer. I have purposely avoided the publishing establishment, because I have known many of them, and their incompetence and ignorance of literature as an art form is frightening. I write because it is a part of understanding what I have made my profession and i have done it for forty years now.
