"This is a promotional message for D. Harlan Wilson's new novel, Codename Prague. If you are offended by messages of this nature, look away. Here is a press kit. Thank you for your cooperation."
Many recipients send short replies expressing interest; most don't reply at all. Occasionally somebody emails this message:
"Remove me from your mailing list."
Stanley's response to these messages is pointed and unambiguous:
"No. The Dream People exists in part as a medium to promote the works of D. Harlan Wilson. By submitting you subjectify yourself. Grow up."
For the record, I am not responsible for how Stan chooses to manage my career; he insisted on autonomy when he signed the contract and I gave it to him. And he hasn't let me down yet.
