As most of you know I am a reader, reviewer, and writer (and interviewer of writers). As traditional publishing has crumbled with the rise of “print on demand” and ebook, many large traditional publishing companies have floundered and failed. Some of them have tried to stay afloat by screwing over the very people who have made them rich in the first place, their authors. One of the worst offenders in this regard is Dorchester Publishing. Since they fell in to bankruptcy they have screwed over their author and former authors in a number of ways. Brian Keene has called for a boycott of Dorchester, and I am with him. (You can get a lot more information on the whole Dorchester situation at Brian blog.) I will no longer buy or review any books published by Dorchester Publishing, and I encourage you to do the same.
It saddens me that it has come to this. In the past I was a fan of Dorchester’s line of horror books because they produced quality paperbacks, and they published many authors I know and love: Brian Keene, Mary SanGiovanni, Edward Lee, Gary Braunbeck, Bryan Smith, J.F. Gonzalez, Craig Spector, among many others.
Help me and many other’s fight the good fight. Please boycott of Dorchester Publishing.
