      Not much to report yet for my semi-annual annoucement, but here are a
      few things to watch for:
      John Barth, The Development (October), a linked collection of stories
      about a retirement village
      David Markson, The Ballad of Dingus Magee (June), rpt. of his 1966
      Western yarn (don't ever mention to him the excreble Frank Sinatra
      movie version unless you want your head torn off)
      Rikki Ducornet, new collection of stories from Dalkey Archive this fall
      Two previously unpublished Kerouac books: Wake Up (Sept.), his
      biography of the Buddha, and his early collaboration with Burroughs,
      And the Hippos Were Boiled in Their Tanks (November)
      Philip Roth, Indignation (Sept), another short novel, set in the 1950s
      at Winesburg (Ohio) College
      David Foster Wallace's long essay "Up, Simba" (on John McCain's 2000
      campaign) is being reprinted in book form next month as <McCain's
      Promise> for obvious reasons.
      But the novel the literati are buzzing loudest about is the late
      Robert Bolano's final novel, <2666,> a 900-page tome that Farrar
      Straus is publishing in November.

      More to come
