But is it unbearably snobbish or sniffy to note that, whatever one’s own literary credentials, it requires considerable generosity of spirit to grant any of these volumes the title “book” in anything other than the meanest, lowest, technical sense of the term? ~Alex Massie on those Threshold “books”

I don’t think so.  In fact, I think Mr. Massie understates the extent of the generosity it requires.
