a place for zinesters - writers and readers
Evidentally several zinesters have gotten that email today. If she could email you now.... why couldn't she have emailed before and asked permission??? Very rotten thing to do.
Not just bad form, but probably illegal. I don't know how far you want to take it, but at the very least I'd contact the publisher and let them know that she's reproducing material without permission. How does someone get as far as publishing a book and not know Copyright 101? :/
If somebody asked me ahead of time if it was OK I'd probably be thrilled. But if they didn't ask I think I'd raise a stink on general principle alone. If yours is the only angry/annoyed e mail they get they probably won't care, but hopefully several people will say something so it'll have some affect.
