Important Stuff For Every Writer To Deal With

Bud Webster's essay Estate Your Business, Please is a fascinating look behind the scenes at how literary estates work, or, more often, explode or implode hideously. It's also an impassioned plea to writers to think about how they want their works kept available after their deaths, and to take action so that their wishes will be carried out.

This essay has it all--family dysfunction, legal drama, buried treasure, and practical advice. Plus, a couple of the accompanying images of out-of-print book covers are slightly salacious. Hey, if a little 1930s T&A helps you remember to name somebody with some publishing smarts as your literary executor, what's the harm?
