    Let’s get the bastards from getting at free speech and truth.
    I am organizing a website, “PublishAmerica is an Oyster,” and the Annual PublishAmerica Book Burning. Hopefully we can burn a pile on their front door but I doubt it. We’ll choose another place.

    Please email me at and I’d all duped but with clarity now PA authors to participate.

    Let’s get em’

    Best of Luck ALL PA AUTHORS

    Thanks, all.

    I will say, however, that this is not a “free speech” issue, at least not in the way most people mean it. The first amendement says “Congress shal make no law…” This is, however, a frivolous lawsuit — and a dangerous one. If PA wins this one, Consumer Reports and every person who reviews anything needs to watch out.

    It would seem that an individual dedicated to combating Publish America’s psuedo-publishing scammery would, himself, be capable of publishing a book to a standard that would not embarrass an eight-year-old.

    It would seem; but it would not be the case.

    Like some kind of karmic law, the high and noble purpose of the “Help” anthology is inversely mirrored by the lowest possible production standards, resulting in a book printed so badly that even Publish America would blush in shame.

    Enck owes you a personal apology, Mr. Parish, an apology of the deepest and most profound nature. If you were to demand his head in a basket you would not be beyond your rights. As a reader, I am disgusted at how carelessly Enck has treated people’s art; as a writer, I don’t think homicidal is quite a strong enough word to describe what I feel on behalf of the contributers.

    For that matter, Ench owes the entire English-reading world an apology.
