I don't expect the refined "intellectuals" in bow ties at TNC to understand ULA writers, anymore than Mitch Miller was able to understand rock n' roll.
However, the ULA has pointed out how today's literary system has failed EVEN BY ITS OWN STANDARDS.
The best writers of traditional novels are publishing through Xlibris-- yet they get no attention from anyone; no reviews even in NEW CRITERION.
I'll give two examples: "The Secret Family" by Lawrence Richette; "The Camellia City" by Phillip Routh (yes, that's his name).
Instead of keeping your heads in the sand, NC Overdogs, and endlessly fawning over Henry James, why don't you squeeze from one of those rich dowagers who support you a couple Twenties and buy these (admittedly overpriced) books. Then let us know what you think-- and if they're good review them in your publication. THEN you'd at last be serving a useful purpose. I believe they're both available through Amazon.
I use them as examples that the present System is failing across the board, even by its own standards.
