So I was reading IWTBF today, and saw the post about Movers and Shakers (which I know I’ll never be because I don’t like to move and I never shake). For some reason, I clicked through to the list, to see who some of these M&Ss have been. One of the names is Gene Ambaum, the, um, "anonymous" (or, for those of you not so sloppy in your use of language, pseudonymous) co-author of Unshelved. Funny how I never see anyone protesting about the "anonymous" writer of Unshelved. No, that "anonymity" never seems to bother anyone. Very curious, indeed, since librarians have been carping for a long time that it’s the so-called "anonymity" of the AL that bothers them so much. Uh huh.
Is It Really the "Anonymity"?
