    Unwelcome Guests #724 "Calling a SCAD, a SCAD"

    See: http://www.unwelcomeguests.net/UNWELCOME_GUESTS

    PARTIAL SUMMARY: Our main talk this week is a 90 minute lecture by Professor Lance deHaven-Smith. His lecture is relaxed and he takes occasional questions from the audience. He begins his talk by outlining the difficulties he has had finding US publishers for his work. While peer reviewers rarely challenged its quality, US journals in particular were loathe to publish it, apologetically turning him away. He explains this by its forthrightness, and he names Chris Hedges and Noam Chomsky as two individuals who while they do not shy away from drawing attention to the misdeeds of the leaders of the US government, are nevertheless reluctant to explicitly call them crimes - never mind to face the truth of false flag attacks. Many government leaders, he says are not merely morally deficient, they are criminals and murderers - and we should face up to that.

    Author Chuck Greaves on books, wine and the Mob LIVE on Authors on the Air

    in Books

    Pam Stack, host of Authors on the Air, is pleased to welcome back to the studio, Chuck Greaves.  Based on a trove of newly discovered documents, Tom & Lucky (and George & Cokey Flo) tells the true story of a singular trial in American history: an epic clash between a crime-busting district attorney and an all-powerful mob boss who, in the crucible of a Manhattan courtroom, battle for the heart and soul of a dispirited nation. Blending elements of political thriller, courtroom drama, and hard-boiled pulp, author C. Joseph Greaves introduces readers to the likes of Al Capone, Dutch Schultz, Meyer Lansky, and Bugsy Siegel while taking readers behind the scenes of a corrupt criminal justice system in which sinners may be saints and heroes may prove to be the biggest villains of all. Chuck Greaves spent 25 years as an L.A. trial lawyer before turning his attention to fiction. His debut novel HUSH MONEY (Minotaur), a legal mystery, won the SouthWest Writers' International Writing Contest, received starred reviews from both Publishers Weekly and Library Journal, and was a Critics' Pick from Kirkus Reviews. HUSH MONEY has been named a finalist for numerous national awards and honors, including the Rocky Award (Left-Coast Crime), the Reviewers' Choice Award (RT Book Reviews), the Shamus Award (P.I. Writers of America) and the Audie Award for Best Mystery audiobook of 2012 (Audio Publishers Association.)

    What's at Stake When It's Fake

    in Technology

    Everyone online knows how important positive reviews and recommendations can be.  They can spell the difference between getting the business or not.  The problem is, a cottage industry has popped up that vends fake reviews.  Just like the black hat firms that once spawned link farms, these faux reviews might make your listing shine in the short term only to tar your company over the long haul.  Even worse for firms who offer to post dubious reviews for a little bit of folding green, the powers that be are beginning to not only take notice, but take action.  Case in point: E-tail giant Amazon has just initiated a lawsuit against 1,000 freelancers that sell face reviews.  How long will it be before other industry titans like Google follow suit?  Will companies who post fictitious reviews wind up tarred with the same brush? Who knows, but one thing is for sure...There's a lot at stake when it's fake.

    Tit for Tat Behavior Among Authors and Reviewers

    in Books

    Every author has been told, again and again, don't respond to negative reviews, don't attack another author, don't badmouth readers for not liking your book. Don't... just don't. Yet, authors, bloggers, and reviewers still get into tiffs that can turn into major ordeals. Maybe it's fun to watch for the bystanders, but what effect is this having on the writing, and especially the indie community? We'll be breaking it down this week on A Special Kind of Crazy, and laying out why antagonistic behavior hurts more than just the jilted author of reviewer.
