Yes, after all, it's ONLY his name.

I freely admit, I don't have a lot of tolerance for so-called experimental fiction. IME, it almost inevitably means crappy writing. Primarily because the people who are (allegedly) experimenting don't know and deploy the rules well enough in the first place to understand why they're breaking the ones that they are breaking.

I recently said at my own office that the next email I see that says "experimental" is going to be a flat NO. Not that we read that stuff, obviously, but still. Just on principle. I suspect we've never seen the next Joyce toddle through here.

I imagine you have had no end of authors who think they've come up with something completely new or experimental that has never been done before and which instead turns out to be pretty old hat.

No. I don't think I even HAVE a username over there. I never have much to add, but I love reading the stuff there. (I figured you meant that for those that have never Kitchned.)

THAT wouldn't be so bad. It's the stuff that's done from ignorance, and is then cast as "experimental" that drives me bats**t. Like, no attribution for dialogue. No dialogue tags, no quote marks. No beats. Dialogue paragraphs being indented, while narrative aren't. I mean, it goes on and on and on.

Of course, it's right up there with all the Forwards that we correct. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. Talk about something that gets up my nose!

I imagine there are always those 'new' author's who feel that they know better than an experienced editor too. Probably even some not so new author's come to that.

I think we should report Moon People and get it pulled unless it's fixed up with proper CSS, proper paragraphs, proper punctuation, and anything else that needs fixing.

The PDF version (the one that is not free) actually has paragraph breaks.

My mistake.

I mean the AZW3 version that you have to pay for does, indeed, have paragraph breaks.

The question is why is he offering two different versions?
