"This Book is Selling Like Hotcakes!"
Jalal ad Din Rumi

Ask An International Guy of Mystery

Dear International Guy,
I've been a fan of yours for some time, and I know I'm not alone in appreciating your work, but I'm confused by some of the reviews I've seen posted online. Your three novels have received glowing responses from well-known writers, as I'm sure they must deserve, but it seems to me that the books were published after these reviewers had died. At the risk of sounding skeptical, can you explain to me how your books got such accolades from Oscar Wilde, Gertrude Stein, and Mahatma Gandhi?

Dear Nan,
In one word: posthumously.
It's fairly common in publishing.
You have a great day,
