Did Suzanne Schwalb and Peter Pauper Press Rip You Off?

I went to Barnes and Noble today to see if I could find a copy of this awful thing, and there it was, right by the registers. I didn’t want to give my money to rip-off artists, so I took it to the Starbucksoid region in the middle of the store and wrote down* all the names. (It’s a tiny book, so this didn’t take too long.)

Look at this, just look at it:

See that there on the back of the title page? Where it says “© 2010 Peter Pauper Press”? That’s these assholes claiming that they own your words. They have a Twitter account, too, and so does the “author” Suzanne Schwalb. If your name’s on the list below, you might want to send some @-replies their way. At least.

Here, then, are all the people who unknowingly “contributed” to this adventure:
