Post #2504 – 20090515
Just finished the Yggyssey. I had the strangest feeling that it was written to me. I had a birthday party at the Clifton Cafeteria. As far as I know, there is no Lafcadio Hearn Avenue in L.A., but as a writer of ghost stories, where else would the ghosts have a parade? And, of course, the witch with millions of cats would be named Wanda (after Wanda Gag, famous Minnesota writer of Millions of Cats).
Also, thank you for the dates. I have a collection of Fictional Events (we know when they happened, but they did not really occur). Today (May 15), for example, Horton hears a Who.
I love it when a reader gets the references! The whole idea is someone saying, ""this was written for me!"" I hope you enjoy the forthcoming Adventures of a Cat-Whiskered Girl--according to market information conveyed to me today, it may be the last novel.
