    Thanks for this link, Dean. It’s a great post. What I found fascinating is that Lawrence Block, the veteran, is also new to the new world of publishing and is learning along with the rest of us. He’s not sure either why some sell better than others, about pricing, about collections, and so on. It is great fun to be learning all this together. Also, he’s spot on about the languishing traditional short story market and the shot in the arm that electronic publishing has given the short story. We short story readers and writers can only rejoice.
