One thought on “Worlds”
John, thanks for sharing this-what an interesting perspective, and it certainly seems true. When I first started using average ratings to influence my purchases, I never bothered checking how many ratings a book had received, but within the last two years, I have started factoring in the number of reviews as well. This becomes problematic with new books, however, because by virtue of it being a new book, there aren’t many readers and consequently just a few reviews.
Sorry to hear about another author taking retribution based on your review-that’s not very mature. I think it’s even more difficult as an author critiquing the work of other authors. Here’s a link to an interesting podcast that discusses just this topic: http://sfsqueecast.com/2012/04/episode-11-this-episode-goes-to/
