the silence to mention that...Infoquake will be one of the most
praised first novels this year. And Frank Lauria is the gent
who often drives authors to their interviews; Harvey Pekar (podcast
coming 5/2(?)) told him, "Hey Frank, Rick reviews books youought
to show him yours, got a blurb from William Burroughs." Indeed
it did, and it is a supernatural mystery informed by H. P. Lovecraft
and A. Merritt. Two of 'em wowsers! Thanks, Harvey! Thanks Frank!
And thanks to Lou Anders for generally taking over the world
in a beneficent manner.
