"What do you think about this new brou-haha over at Out magazine with some harshly-attributed quotes from Benedict toward fanfiction writers? The more I read about his past behavior in the face of this tactic, the more I think the 'journalist' had an agenda. Too bad. "

"dont know what im doing wrong. downloaded the gzip file. (i have 7zip and winrar) keeps saying archive is empty, unknown format or damaged. I downloaded different types and they all do it. Winzip is set to open gzip and works on some other files i have. Are these downloads broken? "

"Hi Paul, Thanks for mentioning the blog post on TIPM! The connection piece can be a really difficult one, as you said, and I think we're only now getting to the point (in both self-publishing and the age of author-entrepreneurs) where real skills and solutions are being developed. We definitely went through a couple of hard years of authors yelling book titles on (ehem...unnamed) micro-blogging sites. There is a place for promotion, but I think now ..."

"I stopped reading his novels soon after he started using co-writers. After the first two or three books came out and were so obviously inferior, I just scratched him off my list of must-read "authors." When I writer provides an outline and then gives it to someone else to flesh out, he's no longer an author, he's a hack. "

"Calm down. I checked out some James Patterson novels a few weeks ago. They gave the co-authors. Here's a list of his most recent: http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_ss_i_1_15?url=search-alias%3Dstripbooks&field-keywords=james+patterson+new+releases+2014&sprefix=james+patterson%2Cstripbooks%2C206 I really don't think most of Patterson's fans believe he whips them out that quickly. He oversees others, creating a brand but leaving most of the words to them. Expecting otherwise is a bit like going to Disney and getting upset that the long-departed Walt himself isn't running your ride or selling ..."

"I am merely a reader and librarian so can't match author Marilyn's vitriol (and wouldn't lower myself if I could) but I enjoyed Paul's humorous take on Patterson's garbage. I also feel marketing Andrews books as though she still lives is wrong. Since the first "Castle" book was so rotten - I mean really if "Castle" had written a book including a story line from "Becketts" past like that the ..."

"Readers buy novels by "Richard Castle" although he's a TV character played by Nathan Fillion on CASTLE. They buy novels by "Jessica Fletcher" although she's a fictional character from MURDER SHE WROTE. The real VC Andrews has been dead for many years yet new books continue to come out with her name. Readers buy books "by" celebrities who can barely write a coherent sentence and obviously did not write that book. ..."

"Wow, it just gets worse for JG. I find it strange that his best book covered the topic of a man who murdered his eleven-year-old daughter's rapists, but IRL he defends the creepy acts of his friend and deliberately obfuscates the facts of the case. I'm not a fan of his books, so I won't have the difficult decision of deciding if I can still support his views indirectly by buying his books. "

"It'd help to get more boys reading, if there was an ereader that fitted a young boy's life style. 1. Fits in a jean pocket 2. Rugged and drop-proof 3. Waterproof 4. Buttons on the side rather than a touch screen 5. Lighted screen for reading under the covers at night 6. Powered by a replaceable or rechargeable AA or AAA battery (cheaper) 7. Doesn't bother with note, highlights or other distractions. -------- I would have loved a gadget just like that as a ..."

"How are the "old white men" that didn't harm anyone further victimizing those that were in the photos? Should your scorn be directed at law enforcement that seems to have no qualms about using these images as bait? They should be destroying these images, not distributing them to weirdos that are only going to trade them and disseminate them further. "

"Not that I find the behavior acceptable... and I agree that it shouldn't matter whether it is boys or girls, but I do think it matters whether the child is 10 or 16. Physically (though not intellectually or emotionally) a 16 year old is usually essentially an adult. Indeed, in some parts of the country, age of consent is 16 years old (Though I don't think that applies to posing for pornographic pictures). ..."

"Did either of you above commenters actually read the article? I suggest you go back and read it again. Paul isn't taking a position at all, merely reporting on what a prominent German author is saying and even calling it into question. I think Ms. Funke likely knows a lot more about the German literary mindset than a couple of anonymous internet commenters. Personally, I find this very interesting. If it is true, it seems ..."

"Further reporting to follow on this, but basically, stupid is not excuse and this is not a victimless crime. It may be stupid to drunk drive, but you still get jailed if you hurt anyone while doing it. "

"Grisham and Sarah might be able to convince themselves that their friends haven't done that much wrong, because hey, they never actually filmed or touched a kid. I wonder how they'd feel if the child being viewed was one of theirs? Still not that big a deal? Their "stupid" pals are creating the market that motivates the people who do actually film and touch kids. Without that market there would be much less abuse ..."
