Dear Mr. Pinkwater,

First of all thank you for the great stories and humor. “Lizard Music” remains one of my life-time favorite books. I am now enjoying and discovering your others.

I have been checking on the internet and have found a few titles connected to your name that are not listed on your site. Are these books out of print? by someone else? or just strange coincidences?

They are as follows:

  • “Dancing Larry” (2006)
  • “Sleeping Larry” (2006)
  • “Goose Night” (1996)
  • “The Muffin Fiend” (1991)
  • “Java Jack” (1980)

and very strangely

“I Snarked With A Zombie” and “Cosmic Classic Novel” both allegedly published in 1924 (a ways back for you).

Just wondering if these are “forgotten” works by you or what is the story?

Thank you,


Daniel replies:

Dancing Larry and Sleepover Larry are actual books, the latter not quite published yet. Goose Night, aka The Magic Goose, and The Muffin Fiend are out of print, probably, but copies can be found. Java Jack is not really co-authored by me...I was a sort of super-editor/rewrite man on that strange and in a way unpleasant book. Favor for a friend. I Snarked With A Zombie and Cosmic Classic Novel are quite rare and hard to find.
