The Mandatory Post

What a joy...it seems that not everyone is pleased about being placed on the Official List of the 20 Worst Literary Agents.

In particular, one Barbara Bauer.

Seems Barbara Bauer was not at all pleased with the honor and privelege of being placed on the list, so has been harrasing various high profile(and maybe low profile?) targets to try and get them to recant.

One particular favorite of mine (since I visit there frequently) is the fact that the hosting company (See Matt's site for address and phone info) for Absolute Write received word from Barbara Bauer and her associates, basically giving the empty threat of a lawsuit as often happens when dealing with people such as Barbara Bauer, and instantly took AW off-line.

Needless to say, Absolute Write is now looking for a new hosting company.

People always amaze me with how easily they can be convinced of lies.

  2. We should gang up on people more often.

  3. Let's all have a round of Vladirian liquor on our host.
    The reason I struggle along without an agent is twofold: One, the big established groups won't even acknowledge a nobody like me and Two, once the really good agents ignore an unknown into oblivion, I'm left with ones that have a lesser track record. Or scam artists.

  4. Lolly, every famous writer started unknown. When AW comes back up, you should check out the sections in the forums dealing with how to get an agent - lots of writers there have, and a couple agents ferquent the boards. It is possible.

  5. We definitely need to gang up on people more often...I could think of one in particular, but........

    nah, not worth the effort.

  6. None of the 20 are agents at all, so that would make the worst nonagents at best. Only the most clueless in the writing world would not recognize the scams these folks are. It's amazing this is news at this time. Their bread and butter are the naive.

  7. I'm afraid the "gang up" made the entire group look like even ranker amateurs than they are. With bad behavior like that, one step above PA is still the waiting room of the damned. All of the writer forums are like this I'm afraid. It's peon pack mentality. You're going to have to get above that to be published.
