"Public, meet the slushpile. . . slushpile meet your Public."

Electronic publishing holds much promise--but Laura Miller emphasizes an essential weakness--a lack of any filter at all.

I'm not keen on some of the ways books get published and some of the writers who remain long excluded because they can't find an in.  But I'm also not certain that I want to wade through the slush piles that have long been a lowly editor's work.
