Who knew I was a threat to the established order? A rebel, a radical, and a hapless tool of reactionary forces? (You thought I was going to say The Patriarchy, didn't you? Probably them, too, and Rand Paul besides.)
Because, you see, I have self-published! The horror of it!
...Wait, what? A decentralized, disintermediating movement, a bypassing of gatekeepers, that's a bad thing? That's a regressive thing? Quick, someone warn Tom Standage!
It is a Very Bad Thing, according to some ghit at the Guardian, to whom I shall not link; Dave Freer (a self-published SF writer; likely has got horns and a tail as well) has fisked it, with links. Go! Enjoy!
