As a writer of genre fiction, sometimes I feel the need to “prove” my literary bona fides. I originally wrote this in 2009, but it remains equally true today. I realize that some of you have seen this before, but starting a new blog, it seems important to establish my bona fides for new readers.
I was going through stacks of old books yesterday. Came upon two copies of The Complete Works of William Shakespeare – a 1917 edition and a 1937 edition. Of course I selected the 1937 edition. After all, the earlier edition was only complete through 1917.
