Blogger kicked off Twitter after harassing writer

18:45 Sep 26 2014 New York, NY, USA

Last night, a Brooklyn-based literary blogger/podcaster/personality suddenly began attacking a novelist on Twitter, after she tweeted about his private threats against her. Before the night was over, the blogger had been kicked off Twitter, and several other writers and literary agents had come forward to tell stories of his threatening and bizarre behavior.

It was the second time this year that this blogger —a longtime fixture of New York’s publishing scene, thanks in part to his nine-year relationship with the news editor of the influential Publishers Lunch newsletter—had been the center of a storm of publishing-world anger and controversy.
