Thanks to those of you who signed up for the book giveaway. I’m happy to announce that Andrea gets a copy of my new short story collection, The Beautiful One Has Come and Tara Masih’s collection goes to Midge Raymond. (Please post your address in the comments section. I promise not to make it public!!)
Incidentally, Midge is the author of the very fine collection Forgetting English, which includes a story set in Japan. I read the first edition awhile back. It’s being reissued in expanded form by Press 53, one of my favorite indie publishers.
