Neil Gaiman weighs in

A while ago I posted a link to a letter by Guy Gavriel Kay on authors relationships with their fans, especially as they relate to fans through blogging, and the conflict that sometimes arises as fans get demanding. It came up in a Patrick Rothfuss blog, if you'll recall. Well, in a comment to a different post of that very same Rothfuss blog I found a link to Neil Gaiman's take on the whole thing, which he title "Entitlement issues." Of course, it is well reasoned and well written, so if you were interested in the first issue you may want to check it out.

PS - is it lame to put in a post to link to a blog that you've already got linked in a permanent way on the right? Imaginary readers are invited to weight in, but I don't think they really care. Do you?
