Only took me three years, to the day, to reply. Really should try to get together sometime, all three of us in one spot. Been a busy summer with festivals and shows. Hope all be well!

Comment on Jay Lake Challenge Week #4 — Amy Sedaris Saves the World by John Teehan /?p=2451#comment-12666 Wed, 02 Jul 2014 13:14:41 +0000 /?p=2451#comment-12666 It has been suggested to me that the wordplay I attempted in this story is a bit of a trial to get through–reading-wise. I’m thinking it’s better listened to. I’m wondering, now, about adapting a couple of these short pieces to stageplay format–or possibly recording them. Thoughts?

Comment on Jay Lake Challenge Week #0 by Josh Langston /?p=2280#comment-7637 Mon, 02 Jun 2014 11:28:06 +0000 /?p=2280#comment-7637 My interaction with Jay Lake was much like yours, and I likewise admire his dedication to the craft. A short story a week for 52 weeks — that’s a huge challenge, but one I suspect Jay would be flattered to know he inspired. I wish you the best with it, and I hope you’ll post a link here on FB every time you finish a lap. Write on!

Comment on Once more on Borders, then I’ll shut up (probably) by John Teehan /?p=2158#comment-203 Wed, 24 Aug 2011 11:58:15 +0000 /?p=2158#comment-203 BookScan has a lot to answer for. And both Borders and B&N were/are guilty of selling preferential positioning and marketing to publishers for certain titles, despite what the reading public actually may have wanted. One example that pops almost immediately into mind are the books of Tobias Buckell. He’s, I firmly believe, one of the best science fiction writers to come out of the current generation, yet his original science fiction titles are nowhere to be found in either store despite being published by Tor. Know where you’ll find him? His one Halo tie-in novel.

Comment on Once more on Borders, then I’ll shut up (probably) by K Stoddard Hayes /?p=2158#comment-202 Wed, 24 Aug 2011 11:34:09 +0000 /?p=2158#comment-202 Personal experience confirms your observations about the disconnect between what Borders was selling and what their customers wanted. I used to frequent the Waldenbooks in Wakefield and in the Warwick Mall, and every time I asked why their selection in this or that genre was so limited, or why they didn’t stock a classic title or a local specialty, the staff explained that Borders would not let them customize their inventory at all. They had to accept whatever the Borders buyers sent them, then, of course, got chastised for failing to sell it.
When Borders finally let Walden die, the Wakefield store’s owners gleefully rebirthed their store as the independent Wakefield Books. And it’s a whole new bird, with a much better selection, a lot less novelty crap and, apparently, better sales. I’ll take an indie over a chain, any day!

Comment on Universal Truths by Lorna Steele /?p=2097#comment-155 Wed, 10 Aug 2011 11:47:08 +0000 /?p=2097#comment-155 I love this! Keep track of them. They are the basis for the little book you will put together that everyone will buy at Barnes and Noble checkouts as an impulse gift during the holidays. Including me. Hahaha

Comment on Did You Know…? The Westerly, RI edition by John Teehan /?p=2090#comment-151 Tue, 09 Aug 2011 11:20:47 +0000 /?p=2090#comment-151 I assume you saw the one about you taking over the Fringe panel at ComicCon. Got the name of the character you were impersonating wrong, but ah well. Gave me an excuse to use that scary picture of you.
