Kelly's reading around the country later this year (hopefully!). Catch up
with her here: http://www.lcrw.net/kellylink/calendar.htm
Four of our books (with more to follow) are in the Google Print thingy, so
if you search for "Meet Me in the Moon Room" for example, you can search
some of the text and, Ray's stories are so short and great, probably read a
Or, of course, go here and read a few stories:
We have a new webhost and we recommend themmm:
Get dressed up -- and I mean you in the pj's! -- and point your sexy clicker
over toe Futurismic to read some great fiction: "Strike A Pose" by Donnárd

On the Perpetual Motion Roadshow in lovely mag Herbivore. Another mag for
you to subscribe to, ooh!
M. Ward, baby. Something about indie radio stations on a lively record (no,
not really) about Transistor Radios and other dead media. Also, on a looong
tour so maybe playing at a barn near you soon.
Gillian Welch is selling single tunes off her website including covers of
Radiohead and Neil Young and Young Rodeo Tornado and others. Kick back and
other dead slang.
Yep. We'll send copies of Carol Emshwiller's hilarious (we say) first novel
CARMEN DOG to those that can tell us something interesting about either:
Carol, Carmen, or dogs.
Carol Emshwiller, CARMEN DOG
(PS Carol has a new collection coming this spring and a new young adult
book. Both are pretty fabby, too.)
We are thinking this sending out free books is a great idea. Please be nice
and do not disillusion us. In fact, we just did our taxes, so please be very
gentle with us and do not suggest celebratory cocktails until some checks
start rolling in. Roll, baby, roll!
Anyway, woe is us, the sky is falling, but not for a bit, so send us
something fun and we will send you a Book. And tell your friends what groovy
things happen in this newsletter thingy and get them to sign up because the
more the merrier and this time we are sending out say 3-5 copies of CARMEN
DOG and maybe next time we will send out more more more. We have good
heating, we don't need them for insulation.
See, soon come now we will have galleys of our five (Five, are you Nuts?)
books we are publishing (fingers crossed!) this summer. That's two fabby
collections -- Maureen McHugh's MOTHERS AND OTHER MONSTERS and Kelly Link's
MAGIC FOR BEGINNERS -- two books we loves so we are reprinting them (yay!)
-- Sean Stewart's MOCKINGBIRD and Naomi Mitchison's TRAVEL LIGHT -- and Kate
Wilhelm's memoir/book on writing, STORYTELLER: WRITING LESSONS FROM 27 YEARS
OF THE CLARION WRITERS' WORKSHOP.
We really will send out books. Unlike the sweets we promised last time to
Liana in Hawaii. Every time we import mass quantities of chocolate or
liquorice or butterscotch for export to Liana someone consumed them. (--
Blame the interns!) [-- Intern went to Spain!] (-- Blame the dog?) [-- Don't
have a dog!] (Bugger. It was me.). But, we do not consume books in quite the
same manner, so we will have some to send. To those who Work Hard and Write
What's the email headline, Kenneth? Hee hee. We'll send you something,
