Object Lesson

For an amusing example of why it's best for writers to ignore their critics, go take a look at Amazon's review section of Anne Rice's book Blood Canticle. There? Good. Now then, go through the reviews and look for one by Anne O'Brien Rice (a quicker way would be to set to show reviews by Highest Rated First). Yes, that seems to be Anne Rice the author, considering it's validated with Amazon's Real Name system. Then marvel at how much editing must already go into Ms. Rice's books, considering how she wrote this all in one really long ranty paragraph. Yow.
