I met Cat Valente briefly at Boskone a couple months ago. I know she's a respected author. Didn't realize anyone would think my comment was a big deal. Sorry.

I thought you just said you'd never heard of me?

I'm pretty sure I didn't say I'd never heard of you. I used to have time to skim Locus, I follow @tordotcom on Twitter, you've been mentioned many times in those places. Of course Tor.com and Locus talk about a lot of authors, so it's fair to say I'm not familiar with most of them.

I'm trying to scale up, to get a better sense of what other people are reading. Reading John's blog helps with that. (Replying to it, maybe not so much.)

Anyway I'm sorry my first reply came out sounding like an argument.

Actually, pretty much all your replies are coming off like arguments. Hint: if you don't want people to think you're arguing, you might start by not opening every post with an argument.

Okay, I apologize. Wasn't my intent.
