This was published in 1997, so no surprise that parts are outdated— especially the marketing advice. Other parts remain relevant, and I learned things I believe will help me write better. However, the book seems padded. An appreciation of Forrest J. Ackerman (for instance), though deserved, is not useful. Neither is Harlan Ellison’s jeremiad on the state of horror.
