While looking through Jeff Herman's book for agents, I ran across an agent who said she wasn't interested in agenting "almost anything channeled." I've never heard of this before. Do you know what she was talking about?
For some time, and perhaps even continuing to this day, there are people who "hear" the books in their head as if from another person. There were quite a few famous books, and "channelers" in the 80s. More info on it is here
Mostly now "channeling"is a joke shorthand, and used (at least by Miss Snark's pals) to indicate one's mother is speaking, when in fact said mother is playing the ponies at Hialeah and NOT telling the loinfruit to eat his vegetables.
