Discussions about the intersection of the things of this world and the things of the world beyond it.

A would-be first-time book author wants to re-purpose his blog posts. He laments their failure to generate the attention he thinks they deserve. Perhaps, he opines, if they were published in print he would reach his desired audience and thus get his vital message before a candid and truth-hungry world.

So why wouldn't a publisher want to risk investing some $20,000 or $25,000 (not counting special marketing costs) to help the would-be first-time book author turn his posts into pulp and reach the eager-to-read-but-hard-to-reach vast market for his thoughts?
