After the Crash
Finally have the 'puter back up. Thank you, leto.
Have good news from Apollo's Lyre. I had a book review accepted, "Walter Mosley's Little Scarlet", for an upcoming issue. I have an interview w/Mosley that PF asked about as well. Hopefully it is not lost due to all the computer meltdown experienced and will be retrieved and sent at the end of this weekend... AFTER the magnum of champagne and the box of truffles, of course.
Received the latest Lawrence Block newsletter. I've had the very good fortune of meeting him three times now and have considered myself a Blockhead for some years. (My sister has probably considered me a blockhead most of my life.)
He has a great essay "Abridge This!", in the 29 Dec-4 Jan issue of Village Voice. For those of you who can't find a Voice, go to villagevoice.com to read it.
Have many of the bios of the anthology's authors now. Still need those few remaining, however. Kicking it all up a notch to publish, to do a really class act antho with what is more or less a Maiden Voyage (for me, anyway) is proving to be a challenge and life experience.
Best of the rest of 2004.
