This site would never have happened without a few key people. I won’t name names but thanks to several people I’ve met over the last few months who have confirmed to me there is an interest out there in these issues. You know who you are.

I’d like to dedicate the site as a whole to writer Michael Weldon, who probably knows a thing or two about the uglier side of the media industry.

No money is made from this site. I doubt that will change but if it ever does we will let you know.

If you have opinions you feel a burning desire to share with the world there are plenty of free options available to you to relieve that sensation. Go write something there.

  1. I have been reading this blog for a few days and it seems to be pretty good, as someone that has written about plagiarism many times in my own column http://www.geekjuicemedia.com/sanity-is-razor-thin.html and as someone that works with Investigative Journalist Mike White I like to see places that use facts to point out the lack of integrity among our literary brethren. Having had my own very public issues with Chris Alexander, Horrorhound and Rue Morgue in the past I find there seems to be no one left anymore in the print medium we can trust… hell when I worked for Hustler that was the most honest magazine out there and well… that was Hustler so what does that say? Anyway, I wanted to post that and say good job.

  2. Keep up the good work. Writers *and* editors of genre media truly need a source like this. As it is, the industry is an ugly, often destructive place to practice one’s craft. It’s this way because no one’s truly shined a light on it. It does seem to be particularly bad in the word service. If something like La Politique Psychotronique exists and calls out those without the integrity required to help the genres flourish, more of those *with* that integrity can work in, and contribute to, the genres.

  3. Can’t wait until these “issues” are discussed instead of the constant barrage of dirty laundry. The good news is that you’re a good writer Dave and more importantly, you’ll run out of bridges to burn in your field of choice soon. I look forward to when you start posting articles that aren’t based primarily around you venting against those who you believe wronged you through privilege, success, or opportunity. At that point this blog should get really interesting. Until then, I hope your public therapy sessions are helping, because it’s about time to move on.

  4. Ding-dong this site is dead! Who would have thought it would end once there were no more Chris Alexander “controversies” to dig up. What a shock!
