You decide. Is this sandbagging at its best? Word of warning; don’t trust everything that you read by Victoria Strauss or the SFWA. Always question the purported watchdogs (Victoria Strauss, James D. MacDonald & Ann Crispin). There’s something seriously wrong with this allegation against American Book Publishing. A reasonable man/woman could only conclude that this claim is a fabrication by Victoria Strauss and that it is being supported by the SFWA.
It’s simple . . . answer the question Victoria Strauss . . . if you don’t you leave 1000′s of authors speculating about your credibility as a “watchdog.” Your silence only leads a reasonable man/woman to conclude that you are a liar with a hidden agenda.
