    Everyone Who's Anyone (Gerard Jones)

    Someone here once reminded me of the name of the guy who writes this hilarious web site and reprints all his rejection letters. It's also a list of publishing companies and editors.
    Now I've forgotten it again.
    Can anyone help?

    A great page, but not the one I was looking for. This lists almost every publisher and agent in the business, also movie companies, etc. interspersed with the guy's correspondence with editors.

    And, considering how he's ticked off so many by listing them, I'd not mention to any agent that you found their name/info on his site.

    I seem to recall Gerard being booted from AW for his rather vociferous responses to his critics.

    I find it odd that Miss Snark frequently sings his praises.

    I find his exchanges with the publishing industry hilarious, especially when so many of us are thrilled just to get a vaguely personal reply.
