Michael N. Marcus discusses writing, editing, design, publishing, language, culture, politics and sometimes other things. He often skewers inept publishers and writers. It's his duty and compulsion. It's important and often funny. If you present work to the public, you must be able to withstand criticism. If your feelings get hurt easily, keep your work private. When you seek praise, you risk derision. Either produce pro-quality work by yourself or get help from qualified professionals.

Typos, misspellings, grammar glitches and other embarassing errors can hide in tiny type on the back cover of your book, and on giant signs. READ CAREFULLY.
