I'm posting this, too:

How Not To Succeed In Writing, which includes a breakdown of Kevin Reardon (aka Cole A. Adams) encouraging Steve Berman (aka mroctober) - anonymously, mind you - to commit suicide and take his cat with him, all because of a throwaway one-sentence opinion of one of his stories. When his identity is revealed, he not only continues his asshaberdashery, but then threatens Steve's life.

OMFG. I nominate him as the First Fucktard of 2009.

Thankfully, word is getting around, and I'd like to help:

Congratulations on fucking up your non-existent career, Reardon! I look forward to super-sizing my meal from you soon!

Yikes. I hadn't heard about this. I shall file this information away for future reference. (I.e., so that we never inadvertantly invite this Reardon guy to a con.)

The funny thing is that the name "Cole A. Adams" rings a bell, though isfdb.org doesn't have anything about him (either under that name or under "Kevin Reardon", and a Google search turned up nothing on the first page.

"Cole Adams" is a vaguely familiar name, but the pic Mamatas has up on his entry only looks familiar in that it's a generic dust-jacket head shot.

On the other hand, "Cole Adams" also sounds like a porn star, but that doesn't match the dust-jacket pic.

Apparently he's sold a few short stories, one of which to a compilation that Steve gave his thoughts on (not as an editor, just as a reader). His skin is also made of rice paper.

How was his life threatened? You can block people on LJ right? That's why I hate posting personal stuff and lock most of my entries, I only accept people I've met in person. Sometimes you have to seperate the internet with the real world. It too easy foe someone to go anonymous and bully or troll around.

He was posting anonymously at first, then revealed himself. The threatening part I think happened in e-mail. Regardless, he's a petulant child who deserves all the bad press he's getting.
