This isn’t new by any means, but I thought I’d share it anyway. I first saw this letter over a year ago, before I knew who Daniel Abraham was, actually, and it made my little geekwriter heart squee. As someone who likes to write both genre and mainstream stories, this one really hit home for me, and it’s well worth a read if you haven’t seen it before.

Check out Livia Llewellyn’s response in the comments. Love it!
Yeah, I feel bad for horror too, sometimes. Even in the great bookstores with awesome fantasy and science fiction sections, horror always seems to be tiny and shoved in awkwardly next to romance. I think horror is sometimes undervalued.
