Now that the danger appears to be over and all seems okay, I think I need to apologize to Neil Clarke (@clarkesworld), as the data is clear it was a submission of my latest work that caused him to have his little incident at Readercon. I mean, how much more obvious can you get? I send an editor work, and the editor is suddenly stricken. Clear linkage, right? I mean, I’m a data driven guy, and this is a statistical correlation that just cannot be denied.
Of course, that doesn’t mean I’m paying for anything.
Happy to see Neil’s getting active again, though. As I move forward perhaps I need to think about this new-found power of mine. Perhaps the real question, as I draw near to finishing more work, is … okay, who’s next?
Just a thought down here in the lonely basement at seven in the morning.
