A publishing house in Maryland, PublishAmerica, is taking heat for presenting itself as a traditional publishing house while it acts as a vanity press. A group of science fiction and fantasy writers deliberately wrote a bad novel and had it published by PublishAmerica as part of a sting operation. The second chapter from the novel is available on Making Light; my favorite example of bad writing is, of course, the use of "y'all" as singular.
