View Full Version : [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 (http://absolutewrite.com/forums/showthread.php?t=42109). (Read both pages.)

IMO, this is part of a personal feud.
