You see this? *
You probably see an asterisk. I see the most potent and powerful typographical symbol of all time. And that includes the interrobang.
The asterisk is no mere glyph. As I explain in a Soapbox piece in the current issue of Publishers Weekly, the asterisk is nothing less than a repository for every book ever written. It is a microdot containing all the volumes ever published. It is the God Particle of literature.
