There are days when I'd just love to take some members of the crime fiction community out back to the woodshed and give them a good thrashing. This quote is from a man who has reprinted online stories in his own print magazines. He is speaking of an author who's managed to get a pair of novels published and says, "...is an example of how one can rise from the on-line ghetto of crime fiction."
Well, color me happy to be in this "ghetto" and having my short stories published in respected ezines that have published novelists like James Reasoner, Dave Zelterman, Hilary Davidson, Sophie Littlefield and a thousand other respected authors.
The Ghetto rules!!
