Nate Hoffelder of the excellent blog, The Digital Reader, takes a former writing professor and literary snob to task. Well done, Nate. Truer words were never spoken. This is the same kind of tool who got punched out by Harlan Ellison while he was in college, after he told Harlan he had no talent.
Commenters tracking down the good professor's poor-selling work on Amazon was just the icing on the cake in this story.
The moral of all this? Never smack down people's dreams. And don't talk smack about them later. It may come back to bite you.
