Edgar Allan Poe Knew The Score In The 1800s!

I am resolved to be my own publisher. To be controlled is to be ruined.
— E.A. Poe

That was written in 1848.

And here I live in the 2000s and must daily suffer the insipid mewlings of fellow writers who are temporarily being treated well by their slave masters — aka book publishers.

Wake the hell up!
