"My work may be garbage but it's good garbage." Mickey Spillane
“both her and all these other writers often REVIEWED on The Rusty Nail are milking you, me, Nick, and everyone they hate for instant fame and hopefully a sale making the public think they are the superheroes.” Dagstine.
Okay, “those other writers REVIEWED” include Karen Koehler, Kim Paffenroth, Brian Keene, Brian Knight, Angeline Hawkes, Mark Orr, and Bob Freeman.
I think that Dagstine is bitter and full of shit. Or alternately he might be deluded. What has stagnated the genre is all those books, ezines, and stories from places like Silverthought, that rape dead trees to create literary toilet paper.
