Waste of time, if you ask me. What do you hope to gain?
Brian and Penny are the senior partners (SFAIK), Byron and everyone else are junior. Not sure how that translates into voting rights within their organization, but consider this:
- Brian chose Kevin as his writing partner and evidently the HLP board members simply rubberstamped it, overjoyed that Brian would be writing something new.
- The HLP evidently exercises NO EDITORIAL CONTROL WHATSOEVER over the content of the books that the Hacks Twain are putting out. (Hell, they don't even control what goes up on the website they're paying for!) Otherwise Byron wouldn't be waiting to get an ARC of books to find out what happens in them; he would also have his own copy of the most important, relevant notes and materials ("Dune 7" outline, for example). (Remember how Kevin blawgged that he was the one to make the final edits to the PoD manuscript and to send it off to the editors? Didn't pass HLP editorial scrutiny, obviously. Even Brian didn't see THE FINAL version before it went off.)
I see no point in trying to contact anyone else. They'll just forward any messages to Byron or Brian-Kevin for handling.
Waste. Of. Time.
I have heard of only one mistake that doesn’t have an explanation for a careful reader...with an open mind. (And, no, I’m not going to tell you what it is!) —KJA
I don't like every writer's style; for instance, I have never been able to get through Ursula LeGuin, China Mieville, or Iain Banks, all of whom are critical darlings. —KJA
I...had written a bunch of Star Wars and X-Files books...that proved not just that I'm a hack, but that I could write in somebody else's universe... —KJA
