Reviews in the Age of the Internet: Karma Comes to the Castle

castleWhen I first discovered that many used books in the UK were one pence plus delivery I went a little crazy.  Sequels and missed treasures — this was the most complete lending library I’d ever patronized, and I could keep the books.  My library swiftly expanded and rose like a castle into the clouds.

However, soon doubts came home to roost upon the castle walls. I’m a writer, and I would like to be paid, so shouldn’t I be buying the book new?  These are Karmaic doubts.  And you don’t want to mess with Karmaic doubts.  Sharks, typhoons, poor ebook sales … you never know with Karma.

So now, having bought what books I can manage firsthand and the rest secondhand, I post reviews for all.  In the age of the Internet there’s never been an easier, more effective way to do it, because review sites are all over the web.  I wander through my shelves, pick out a book I enjoyed and put up a glowing review for it.  And it’s great — I’ve always wished to thank authors for a great read.  All those hours they write, just to please me!  Thank you very much indeed.

And, a big thank you to readers and writers who have taken a few minutes to post reviews for Pulp Literature.  We so appreciate this work. Thanks again to all.
