Nice Things Said Re: EWN

    "Mr. Wickett is that rarely heard from but best of all possible reviewers - the dedicated and knowledgeable fan. He writes clean-cutting and fresh reviews that represent a sensibility unspoiled by over-exposure to the biz of books, but deeply in love with them." Daniel Woodrell, author, Winter's Bone

    "Dan Wickett is a reader's best friend. Not only does he read and trenchantly review new work, but he looks back to books that deserve ongoing readership. I've lost track of the number of times he's led me to boks that I overlooked (or never knew about), and that were a delight. There aren't many reviewers I will let shape my library, but Dan Wickett is one." Erin McGraw, author, The Baby Tree

    I wrote a fairly long piece about this issue in my blog today as well. I do believe it's highly likely that Vice is paying for the alleged sins of Ramke, and that the press acted too hastily to save its own skin following the Poetry Series scandal. Paying homage to another work by using the title of that work and "borrowing" from the original is a fairly common artistic trick. Poets and visual artists do it all the time, so why should fiction writers be held to a different standard?

    Just a little FYI - Vice is a professor at Mississippi State University, not the University of Mississippi. That's a rather large difference for Mississippians.

    Good Lord I can't believe I did that - I'm sure it's just as big as if somebody called me a Spartan (Michigan State). Thanks for the heads up.
