Swiss Review Little Egypt Book of Ghosts

Postby Joe Z » February 20th, 2009, 11:22 am

For the most part, I agree with Jamy Swiss concerning his very positive review of Steve Bryants wonderful new book, The Little Egypt Book of Ghosts.

However, I find his cheap, snippy, disparaging remark about the high-on-pretense-low-on-ethics PEA crowd to be yet another indication of the obviously innate low-mindedness that so often permeates his otherwise semi-lucid analyses. As an unassuming and reasonably principled mentalist who happens to belong to the PEA, I find Swiss mean-spirited and bigoted characterization both stupid and insulting.

The readers of Genii deserve better than this.

I think everyone already knows that Jamy Swiss is not a fan of the Psychic Entertainers Association.

Chief Genii:

Now that's a pretty lame excuse for nasty, boorish commentary from a mean-spirited and close-minded colleague. Give me a break!

He made a single, brief comment. It was not a "commentary."
And he's entitled to his opinion. Do you think that everything in Genii written by others reflects only my opinion? I hope not.

Frankly, I think Mr. Swiss's gratuitous comment says much more about him than about the PEA.

I watch for descriptives - they're telling.
