The ‘Chinese Rejection’

December 24th, 2008 · No Comments

Probably an urban myth, but the ‘Chinese Rejection’ letter from publishers is a good laugh:

“We have read your manuscript with boundless delight. If we were to publish your paper, it would be impossible for us to publish any work of lower standard. And as it is unthinkable that in the next thousand years we shall see its equal, we are, to our regret, compelled to return your divine composition, and to beg you a thousand times to overlook our short sight and timidity.”
