I love this quote

... from an article on self-publishing in the New York Times (by Motoko Rich, published online 27 Jan 2009):

Indeed, said Robert Young, chief executive of Lulu Enterprises, based in Raleigh, N.C., a majority of the company's titles are of little interest to anybody other than the authors and their families. "We have easily published the largest collection of bad poetry in the history of mankind," Mr. Young said.


You can buy my poetry collection, published via the good offices of lulu.com, from the Rikweb Bookshop. Please note that the author cannot guarantee the badness of the work, and will not offer any refund should the poems fail to trigger your book-hits-wall reflex.
