Now entering Stanek country. . .


Well folks,

This afternoon I arrived in Ruse, Bulgaria. Country number 43 for me. . .

Then I realized that I was entering one of the countries where Robert Stanek is supposedly a bestselling author.

I am humbled. . .

Not to mention the home of the one person on his forums who isn't just a Stanek Sock-puppet.

Much like the LOTR-inspired tours of New Zealand, maybe you should get to work on a world tour of all the top-selling locations for Stanek's novels?

It's the catchy title that inexorably drew in to his magnum opus.

Pat don't you think all this sniping is needless and lessens you as well as him?

lol Yes, he's such a bestseller that they published one book, 500 copies I think, and they are still available everywhere, because no one is buying them! lol I can tell you this, I know the person who actually suggested to a certain publisher that they should buy Stanek's work...

You better watch out from irate Stanek fans. He has over 9000 now on facebook andmost of them probably live in Bulgaria:

If the one fan Brett mentioned in the first comment spent the time to create 8987 facebook accounts, you could be right, Andrew.

Highly unlikely in any other case.

there are a lot of websites where one can buy facebook fans:

Stanek went from having several sockpuppet fans to over 9000 in a month, so I suspect he used one of these services
