For authors: Some encouraging words on rejection letters from Mike Resnick

In "Last Impressions" at JBU, #18 (April 2009).

Basically, don't lose heart on rejections. Some of the most popular works saw a huge number of rejections - he lists some.

PS: Some well regarded works he mentions that I hadn't heard of yet: Harlan Ellison’s “A Boy and His Dog” and Thomas M. Disch’s “The Brave Little Toaster”.
