Someone has been stealing manuscripts and sowing distrust in the book industry


• Someone has been impersonating people within the publishing industry to get advance copies of manuscripts from "colleagues" and authors


• They've been getting more antagonistic over the past year and have scammed people into doing work without paying them


• No one can figure out who the scammer is or what their endgame is but the prevailing theory is that it's a disgruntled industry insider doing it just to fuck with everyone


• Everyone is paranoid and no one trusts each other anymore


Long article but a fun read! edit: sorry mods if this submitted multiple times
