Packing to Leave Planet Cancer Again
Yesterday we learned that one of the members had died. Her mother posted a note saying what had happened and thanking the board. I've only been there a week, but she was posting until the day she died and it knocked the emotional wind out of me. I feel like porcelain.
On the other hand (who knew there was another hand) Small Beer Press is going to be publishing the paperback of Mothers & Other Monsters Real Soon Now and Gavin and Kelly are in the final stages of getting it ready. When I was in New York for The Story Prize I learned that book clubs all over Greenwich Village were reading it. So of course it seemed like a good idea to have one of those reader's guides in the back. I did a few questions and sent them to Gavin, but on the Small Beer semi-regular email and sales brochure (get yer red hot deals on Carol Emshwiller!) he asked for people to submit questions.
I love the idea. So if you've read some of my stories, or even read the collection and you can think of a question for the reader's guide, please post it in the comments or send it to me and I'll forward any on to Gavin.
