a soap box to stand on and characterized the "interview" as "great". His claim that the only trouble between the publisher and the authors is "sporadic communications miscues" is ridiculous.
Even based purely on what is available publicly online there are clearly issues including but not limited to producing a terrible product, and not paying authors promptly and in full. And if it is the case that "80% of our current authors are new" I suspect they are going to learn, pretty soon, that leopards don't tend to change their spots.
When Coffee Time accepted Gombart's answers without any editorial comment and closed by thanking him for his "insight", they lost me as reader. Because that is where they crossed from just providing a point of view to endorsing it.
Edited to Add: Coffee Time has withdrawn the interview.
