And lashes out! And makes speeches! And uses math!

Wow. Just ... wow.

What an unnerving look inside that moron's twisted mind. Proceed with caution.

Hi, Keith! You're a hack! :greetings-waveyellow:

Is it the same one? This one has a posting date of Nov. 24 (today).

Of course:

A. Anderhack doesn't know how to use blogging software;

B. He recycles everything else, so resurrecting an old post wouldn't be beyond him.

From my close observation of writers...they fall into two groups: 1) those who bleed copiously and visibly at any bad review, and 2) those who bleed copiously and secretly at any bad review.

I was a bit disappointed to see Annalee (or whatever) calling the post "awesome". She'd made some catty comments about the McDune books before, but I guess the all just can't help clumping up together, huh? :roll:

(Liked Hackmatics, did ya? :lol: )

The first time EVER I have been called a snob ... Dear Keith, we are not just saying you are a awful writer because you "write" fast, we have proven you are a bad writer regardless your work ethics. Still to dumb to understand the basics aren't you.

It is.

It's a bigger tissue of lies than Keith's "I'm a best-seller!" ravings, which at least have some basis in truth (of course, all the best-sellers have been EU works based on other writers' imaginations ...).

Kevin J. Anderson has won basically nothing in a 25-year writing career. Ignore all of that Wikipedia shit, as most of what is listed there aren't even really awards. Here's Keith's summary in the actual real, physical world we live in:

HUGO
0 nominations
0 wins

NEBULA
1 nomination (16 years ago)
0 wins

OTHERS (wins only)
1 Golden Duck
1 Geffen

The Golden Duck is a YA award. The Geffen is pretty comical: "The Geffen Awards are voted by the participants of Icon, the annual Israeli SF&F convention, to works published in Hebrew over the course of the past Jewish year."

Um ... okay. :lol:

So, the summary: Kevin J. Anderson hasn't won SHIT in a 25-year career.

He's got one goofy-ass thing for a YA novel (that was technically co-authored) and one award from an obscure convention in another country for a translation (and, again, it was technically co-authored).
