Tim Powers

Name: Michael Mayhew Source: unca20090706.htm KOS and Kristian (or anybody else) - I am utterly ignorant of the works of Tim Powers. I have heard his name before but that's about it.

Re: Semi-Writer Saying Hello

Kristian - I know that some print on demand books have been successful and even been picked up by "legit" publishers. In a way POD has been taking the place of what used to be called the mid-list - mainstream, non-genre novels by career writers who had some name recognition but were not be...

Phil Nichols - Walker Crisps

Name: Michael Mayhew Source: unca20090706.htm Phil - yikes, no! My Walker Crisps post was just a bit of probably-not-as-funny-as-I-thought smart-assery, in response to HE's post that he already had enough help on the crisps situation.

Moon

Name: Michael Mayhew Source: unca20090706.htm Hey - just got back from a screening of the new Sam Rockwell movie, Moon and wanted to post a quick thumbs up.

ATC

Name: Michael Mayhew Source: unca20090706.htm Hang in there. In my experience being a good son is always worthwhile, but often doesn't feel like it when you're in the thick of things.

Re: Vestiges of a Mad Venture -Books Away!

FinderDoug, Debbie and Steve B, your books hit the mail today on the slow train called media mail (Debbie, sorry it took so long to actually get yours in the mail). I tossed in some postcards to use as bookmarks. I've got a big stack of them left over from my days as a small press publisher. Enjoy! MM
