Miss Snark's Greatest Hits (vol 14)

Two more from the snarkives:

Joint accounting is a bad deal for the author.

Diminishing sales and the death of an author's name

Plus one that Miss Snark linked to:

In which the practice of free rewrites is discussed. A free rewrite is when an editor says I love this but... and then convinces the author to revise without a contract or any other sort of promise. I've seen this happen to a number of folks in F&SF with much work and wailing of teeth going into a project that the editor then fails to buy.
