    [Publisher] The Dark Fiction Spotlight

    I want to suggest that you avoid these guys due to some very questionable behavior patterns.

    They bought a story from Nickolaus Pacione. Then they leaked it so that people would sneer at the story. Then they each blamed the others for buying it and went through a flamewar and worse for what appears to be nothing more than a PR stunt. Nicky, of course, had absolutely no concept of the fact that he was being used.

    He thought he was finally getting recognized.

    AW has a thread about Pacione here. (Read both pages.)

    IMO, this is part of a personal feud.
