But an asshat named Robert Stanek seems to think otherwise. This gentleman appears to think that anyone’s success comes at the expense of his own career. I’ve heard of misguided authors trying to game Amazon to pump up their own work, but this has got to be the most vindictive wrinkle I’ve yet heard about. I mean, dude, WTF did Patrick Rothfuss do you you, other than sell better? I mean, at least I can understand the motive behind you going after David Louis Edelman, I mean he did let everyone know how you (badly) Photoshopped yourself into a book signing. Even the vendetta against Jim C. Hines, at least he was critical of you in the comments of his little
anti-self-publishing anti-asinine-self-publishing-tactics post. But this sockpuppet jihad against the Name of the Wind? Makes no sense.
