Blogrolling
Posted by: Keir Graff

Why was I reading Richard Eoin Nash’s blog just now? For probably the same reason he was reading my blog: we’re both quoted in the same article (“Harriet Klausner: the publishing industry’s secret weapon?” by Simon Owens, Bloggasm):

"This is an exhilarating outer space opera that never slows down especially during the latter quarter of the action-packed story line," the book review states. "That climax is one of the longest most exciting cat and mouse chase scenes in recent years."

The review is of Ragamuffin, a speculative fiction novel by Tobias Buckell published by Tor Books. The writer of the review is Harriet Klausner, Amazon’s most prolific customer reviewer.

Klausner has written over 12,000 reviews since she first started posting them in 2000. That’s an average of more than four books a day, seven days a week.

I guess I’m not Harriet Klausner, after all.

    Even more embarrassing, I first came across the blog LONG after I should have, when you linked to the Bookslut article about the demise of PGW…But you’re on my RSS feed now. Your link to the adverbial HP post, which I forwarded to me wife, made her very happy: 6, 7 years ago, she saw someone reading a book on the subway, glanced over the shoulder, saw endless adverbs, wondered what the hell is this awful crap, and then saw, when she got out, it was HP…

    Nice to “meet” you, Richard–have always been interested in the fortunes of Soft Skull (he said genially). I’ll be reading (avidly) your blog, too (he said sincerely).
