An anonymous LROD reader sent in this irritating rejection, received from a non-mainstream press: Dear Writer, Rejected: I think that what you have here is a wonderful , original idea. But, alas, I fear it is much better an idea than it would be a book. Still, I would like very much for you to prove me wrong, and I wish you all success with this proposal. Signed, (Annoying) Editor
Our rejected writer added this comment: "So much for the theory that originality is the domain of the small press."
