"The Tooth Fairy left the name DreamHaven Books
under my pillow. Usually it's a 25-cent piece;
but given the current value of the U.S. dollar,
the value of this tip was far more glorious.
DreamHaven is a book-seeker's cave of miracles."

- Harlan Ellison

I received a fairly excited call yesterday from my son, William (or "Will" as he's beginning to be known in college) that he was cast in Sondheim's Assassins, playing John Hinkley.  He gets to sing a love duet with Squeaky Fromme.  It looks like we'll be making an extra trip out to New York (Hofstra University) to catch the play; luckily, it's on the one weekend in April I don't have a convention or some other event.

Excuse me, I have to go listen to the original cast recordning now; I've never listened ot the music before.....

Borderlands Books

George R.R. Martin has shot down a favorite fan theory about the character "Coldhands" in his Song of Fire and Ice series.  

So I still have a chance at being this mysterious character who is possibly a man from the Wall.  George used my name as a character on the Wall on page 466 of the first book ("...but when Hake and Dywen tried to tie one(a dead body)  onto a horse, the animal went mad, screaming and rearing, lashing out with its hooves, even biting at Ketter when he ran to help."   Next, I email George with my suggestion.....
