Well, not to be too snarky but, I think that is 60.5 percent ignorance of the literary world. Many great authors, now considered to be Icons of genius, actually self-published to get their work noticed.

I think ignoring self-published works does a great disservice to the world, as many new independent artists take risks the tradtional publishing industry won't. And risk taking in art is where the genius lies.
