>Another warning to writers ......

Because there is so much ego involved in the writing game (because writing
is such a personal, creative act), writers are among the least paid,
most-scammed groups on Earth. Fame comes before fortune, for sure.

For example, check out the public section of the Science Fiction Writers of
America website (not sure if it's www.sfwa.org or www.sfwa.com), where they
report and track scams against writers. Scamming has been going on since
there were writers, apparently. Their boldness will amaze you - what the
British call "cheek".
