New York Note from November 2, 1907!
Wow, what a way to wake up! I accidentally came across this article this morning which posed a question I have persistently pondered myself, and woke up thinking about, and which still resonates remarkably well in today's publishing world. The most magnificent thing though is that it was published in the New York Times, in November 2, 1907! So, I pose this quintessential question to you readers, I quote: "What chance has a poor struggling author with nothing to recommend him but his work against these literary obstructions, which are variable as the wind?"
