Cynique, Hickson while quite formidable is no match for Kola :)

A few things you can say about the results of Hickson's efforts;

  1. You know who he is
  2. You probably are not gonna forget him,
  3. He takes advantage of free resources
  4. He works hard.

Kola exhibits the same characteristics. These are gonna be the characteristics of any successful author -- especually a sefl published one.

I remember, quite clearly, the first day I met Hickson at a party in Harlem about 9 years ago. He was in the early days of GhettoHeat. Over the subsequent years I'd see him at book events and marveled at his growing roster of authors. He has even been known to shout out AALBC.com from time to time.

My hat goes off to the brother.
