Writers Beware!

Making Light (the personal blog of editors Patrick and Theresa Nielsen Hayden) continues its vendetta against fraudulent "literary agents" who charge their clients (agents take a percentage, not an up front fee) and do no work. After helping to publicize Writer Beware's Top 20 Worst Agents list, they (along with a bunch of others) received a cease and desist letter from one of the fraudulent agents. She also informed the Nielsen Haydens' employer (Tor publisher) that they had committed libel on a Tor website (Making Light is not a Tor website.)

So the Nielsen Haydens are encouraging everyone to help this agent hoist herself on her own googlejuice by linking to the Top 20 Worst Agents List.

Yay internet justice!
