I have an issue of Notes from the Windowsill
almost ready to go, but am being held up by that thrice-cursed review of The Rules of Survival
. Not only did I sweat blood over that thing, but apparently I stole
it as well! Yes, I discovered that what I had thought was a rather neat turn of phrase came almost verbatim from the book jacket. No one else noticed, or if they did, they were too polite to say anything, but it seems better to fix it before officially publishing it.
How humbling. Now I'm terrified that I might have done this before without noticing.
I'm tempted to just burn that review down and salt the earth.
