Other news: This blog is only about four months old and is still undergoing growing pains. But I’m encouraged to have received hits from 15-plus countries. The United States, not surprisingly, is well out in front, followed by the United Kingdom, Italy, Canada, Australia and Germany – all places where print copies of Liege-Killer and the Paratwa Saga have long been available in English-language or translated editions.
Finally, I have to congratulate my fave sports teams, the Philadelphia Eagles, who broke an eight-game losing streak Sunday by beating the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Go Eagles!
