I just read Leslie's story "Death Penalty" again over on SCIFICTION. This is truly the kind of fiction that keeps bouncing around in your head long after you finish it. Great world, setting, characters. The story is vivid and chilling and has a relentless forward movement.

My next commentary is about Girl Scout Cookies and how you ought to by them. Not for the Scouts' sakes, but for the mothers.

Ray, I agree with you whole-heartedly.
"Death Penalty" is an important yet entertaining story.

Finally got around to reading "Death Penalty." Leslie -- disturbing stuff. Very well done. Thanks! I like how you didn't take the easy way out with any of the characters.
But my favorite detail was how the narrator noticed how the quality of the pies had gone down at about the same time that the father of the murdered boy would have quit baking them at the restaurant. Call me weird, but I love details like that. Reader cookies!

I've signed the contract for my "first" novel, which will appear in Spring of 2004. "Olympic Games" from Tachyon Publications is a comic novel about how people refuse to let the interference of the gods bring them down.
If you want to receive a postcard closer to publication, send your address and I'll add it to my list.
*first=first to appear under my name

I'm at the library, trying to access my email acocunt. No luck. So I'm using my hour before my root canal to kill time and check some BBS.
I only found out yesterday that I needed my tooth _done_. This spares me from having time to hear all the horror stories beforehand...

Do you have email yet? Are you still changing services?

You sold a novel? Jesus, that's great! Johnzo and I are both thrilled for you!

I think I've heard/read parts of that book, haven't I? It was very cool. Ray

(crap! I thought I posted this already but musta forgot to hit the 2nd button)
I'm sorta online. When I move the computer into the other room with the phone line still connected.
I'm going to be away for a week (writing retreat at the coast). I hope somebody tapes American Idol for me.
Thanks, Victoria! Ray, you did read parts way back when we had our novel-writing workshop. This one took a while to hatch.
