We’ve talked about the Tin House news — they’re now insisting on a receipt for a book purchased in a bookstore accompanying submissions to the press and the magazine, for a limited time. It’s caused a stir, if not a stink.
Here’s one response. Dzanc books is now saying that if you send them a receipt for a book purchased in a bookstore (during July) they will donate a book to the library of your choosing. Buy a book (must be literary fiction). Send Dzanc a receipt and tell them where you want the book to go. They take care of the rest.
