A Post About Author Rankings

“Some of the greatest works of art our culture has produced were incredibly unpopular when they first were created; others were dismissed as not worthy of serious critical attention because they were popular with the masses.  Popularity is a double-edged sword.”

Today’s post can be found at the Magical Words blog site.  The post is titled “Amazon, Popularity, and a List That We Really Don’t Need,” and it is about the dangers of of making assumptions about the relative merits of works of art based solely upon their popularity.  I hope you enjoy the post, and that you’ll feel free to join the discussion.
