A Thought for My Fellow Book Bloggers

In looking at the latest New York Review of Science Fiction, I see an article by Gregory Benford on “The State of Magazines, 2014”.

David Hartwell is quoted:

The bottom line is that there are literally thousands of published but less than truly excellent fantasy and sf writers now (never mind the self-published) who are desperate not to be judged in comparison with others, especially older and established writers. We all know that is scary. So they deny the existence of any rules, any boundaries, so they cannot be judged. My only answer is, judge them anyway.
