      -- A short note in Celebration of a Pub Date (not that kind of pub. Well,
      maybe.) with a few random notes tacked on.

      Today, August 15, 2002, is the official pub date of Carol Emshwiller's two
      new books, REPORT TO THE MEN'S CLUB AND OTHER STORIES and THE MOUNT --
      Congratulations Carol!!
      http://lcrw.net/carolemshwiller/

      The books are getting really strong reviews, the latest of which is in this
      week's TIME OUT NEW YORK:

      "Let's start with the stories. Elliptical, funny and stylish, they are for
      the most part profoundly unsettling.... As wonderful as the stories are, the
      real treat here is THE MOUNT, a fable/fantasy/cautionary tale along the
      lines of, say, ANIMAL FARM.... Like so much of Emshwiller's work, THE MOUNT
      asks difficult questions--in this case, What is freedom? The issue is
      particularly appropriate at a time when "freedom" in America is increasingly
      defined as "security"--freedom from uncertainty, freedom from fear, freedom
      from want. All of which is, in the end, not really freedom at all."

      Not sure where to go for your loooong summer vacation? How about Saskatoon?
      Yep, Saskatoon. Why not? It's cool (well, sometimes), faraway, and has
      enough bookshops and happenings to keep the most ardent vacationer busy.
      And, if you do happen to go, you can go to this:

      The launch for the new issue of Backyard Ashes, entitled Breaking the
      Surface. The launch will be held at 7:30 at Mcnally Robinson Bookstore,
      Thursday August 22, 2002.

      McNally Robinson Saskatoon
      3130 8th Street East
      8th Street at Circle Drive
      Saskatoon, SK S7H 0W2
      Phone 306-955-3599
      Fax 306-955-3977

      If you like readings and live (or are visiting) New York, we've got a
      reading series for you: The KGB Fantastic Fiction Series, on the third
      Wednesday of every month. Next up: Judith Berman and Katherine Vaz on August
      21.

      We just got our hands on some really good chocolate for the next issue of
