3 AM Magazine has asked its readers to come up with the 50 least influential people in publishing. I have taken the liberty of nominating myself. If I don’t make the top ten, there’s going to be hell to pay! You hear that, Mr. Gallix? These are the wild thrashings of a litblogger who has NO INFLUENCE WHATSOEVER on the publishing industry! I cannot stop them from publishing Dan Brown or John Grisham. I cannot stop them from giving ridiculous advances to Alan Greenspan. I cannot stop them from throwing money to idiots like the Nanny Diaries authors or Paris Hilton or Nicole Ritchie. I have NO INFLUENCE WHATSOEVER over the publishing industry’s strange behavior and altogether irrational decisions!
In other words: Number one with a bullet, Gallix!
