Forum Flotsam: Thought for the Day


A thought relating to very small or new presses:

"Be not the first by whom the new are tried,
Nor yet the last to lay the old aside."

(Alexander Pope, An Essay on Criticism, 1711)





--as quoted by James D MacDonald at the Absolute Write Water Cooler

...am I being too obscure? ;)

I think this phrase sums up nicely my feelings when new epresses are surrounded so quickly by authors gushing about their virtues and placing multiple books with them, well before any of them could have sales figures. Perhaps I am too cynical.
