More Smart Things + Follow Up

First a couple of follow up posts on Agent Kristin's query post. The first, wherein the author give her take on the exact same query. The, wherein Agent Kristin shows you what she does after taking on the book in terms of her own letter to the editors. Together these make for a great dissection of the whole query process.

Jay Lake saying smart things about the issue of cultural appropriation and speculative fiction--much of interest in the comments as well.

J. Steven York on vanity publishing and how even when it's a success it's generally a lot more work than the traditional route for a lot less reward. A blog in three part 1, 2, 3.
