Philip E. High on the gaps in his writing career
”Most of the gaps in my writing life were due to misinformation. For instance, immediately following my retirement in 1979, and throughout the whole of the following decade, I was assured by many who should have known better that the popularity of sf was well and truly finished. Magazines, I was told, were folding left, right and centre. I was given no encouragement to continue with my writing. All the gaps in my writing years may be referred to the same cause – the belief that there was no publishing market.”
