Hi Sharon,

There's actually a pretty good story about where DEAD RUN came from. Years ago, PJ and my dad and I were driving home from my grandparents' house in Door County, WI -- the trip has lots of stretches of farmland dotted with tiny bergs like Four Corners. It was a spectacular fall day, sunny and warm, and we began to notice that all the towns seemed completely deserted, not a soul in sight. Shouldn't everybody be outside enjoying the weather? Our minds immediately went to the dark side - after eliminating alien abduction, we decided that something horrible must have happened and began crafting a story from there. My long-suffering father, who always remained silent (and amused) during our madcap creative binges, finally looked at both of us and reminded us there was a Green Bay Packers game on TV. (less)

A sigh of relief

Hello, everybody,

Just thought I'd share some news - I sent the manuscript of Monkeewrench #10 off, literally about ten minutes ago! It feels surreal, like it always does. It can't be finished, can it? What am I going to do now?

I'm sure I'll find something to occupy my time.

Also, wanted to pass along a couple interview links, TV and radio about THE GUILTY DEAD.
