After a fiction drought of some duration, I can announce that I've placed two
stories, in rapid succession.
The first is "The Train Stops," a horrific fantasy for an upcoming Benbella
volume of stories and essays inspired by the songs and career of Johnny Cash.
The second is the novelette "After the Protocols," which is a far-future fable
about anti-semitism. For various reasons I cannot name the venue yet, but will
when the information is cleared for public knowledge. However, 'tis a goodie.
You should be seeing it in a few months.
I may also have a new home for my horrific novella, "The Shallow End of the
Pool," one of the darkest stories of a career that has never been all sweetness
and light. This one was already sold once, but was rendered homeless by publishing
woes. But it may have landed. This is far from an official announcement, but
keep your toes crossed.

Good luck with all of the above. I always look forward to new fiction from you (and I'm especially interested in the "Protocols" story, especially with the recent infamy of that so-called study of The Lobby by the so-called professors from Harvard and University of Chicago). Please send Judi the best from the Fox family in New Orleans. Asher is walking now, by the way! And both boys love the Cozy Coupe.

And Happy Passover to you, Andrew! Are you guys coming to Oasis this year?
"The Shallow End of the Pool" is back on the schedule as a stand-alone book in 2007. Details to follow.

Happy Pesach right back at you, Adam. Actually, I hadn't even thought about this year's Oasis. I'll check the calendar, but I'll probably be making a trip up to NYC for my friends Maury's and Jackie's wedding in June, so that may absorb my early summer travel budget. But, you never know. . .
That Johnny Cash anthology sounds pretty neat. I'll have to check it out.
