Lost (and Found) F. Scott Fitzgerald Story Rips Publishing Industry: Critical Linking, March 14, 2017

Today’s Critical Linking is sponsored by Unbound Worlds’ Cage Match.

The publishing industry may currently seem awash in celebrity-penned fantasy novels, short fiction by movie stars and problematic screeds by problematic provocateurs with hefty social media followings ― but a newly published short story by F. Scott Fitzgerald suggests that viewing publishers as greedy and exploitative is nothing new.

F. Scott gettin’ snarky! Here for it.

Owen King has spent years testing (and proving) his mettle as an author in his own right; no one can say he hasn’t earned the right to work on a project alongside his famous dad, horror-master Stephen King. The two have announced a collaboration that will be published this year: Sleeping Beauties is a novel that explores the timely question “What would happen if all the women abandoned the world?”

Ohhhh nice.
