How did it go, Jon?

Very nicely. Self-starter, told stories, very humble and friendly. Like falling off a log, it was.

I Was privileged to introduce Dave Barry last night at Book Passage. I brought along a 6-piece rock band, and we performed two songs with Dave, then I introduced and he was just hilarious...great fun; a couple of other singing authors stopped by to sit in, too. (jrc), did you meet Elaine, my associate, with McNeil?

I sense a topic!
Moist Howlette (kkg) Thu 29 Oct 98 01:46
The most interesting stuff about us is the stories we cannot tell. Basically, we're babysitters for authors on tour.
Cynthia Heimel (plum) Thu 29 Oct 98 09:54

And now for a coy little reminder that that tomorrow's the date for Online Research with Reva... No segue, but you can't have everything. The WELL and The Exploratorium are doig our very FIRST collaboration... an evening with online research expert Reva Basch, who we all know as the author of Researching Online for Dummies, as well as Queen of Cyberspace and Aubergine. So see you there at 7:15 p.m. Wednesday, November 4, at San Francisco's Exploratorium, 3601 Lyon Street at Marina (at the Palace of Fine Arts), in the Learning Studio. Free, even. Or, if you want to participate virtually, come to http://www.well.com/conf/inkwell.vue and listen to a Real Audio simulcast. That should be good! Please help make this a landmark event, and the first of many such meetspace/meatspace happenings. You know, f2f and computer to computer, parties and gatherings in multiple dimensions.

Two sort of literary upcoming events on the east coast: Thursday, November 19 - Rock Bottom Remainders at The Bayou in Washington DC, a benefit for DC Scores. There's some mysterious tie-in with pro soccer and the national Gallery, too. Tickets available at Ticketmaster Saturday, November 21 - Rock Bottom Remainders at Bayside marketplace in Miami, 6 PM... this show is free and open to the public, and part of the Miami Book Festival. For those unfamiliar with the Remainders, we're an all-author garage band that puts on a great show, although the musical chops are aspiring to mediocre. Warren Zevon is our current rock star in residence.

The SF book fest was tremendous. I was able to go for a couple of hours Saturday afternoon and could barely stagger out under the weight of my purchases.
Cynthia Heimel (plum) Tue 10 Nov 98 00:21

Oh, let's see... what-all did I buy? The real prizes: Two copies of DICK FOR A DAY at the Good Vibrations booth (a collection of essays by women on what they would do if they woke up with a penis) A used hardcover of <mm>'s THE KINDNESS OF STRANGERS A used harcover of JUDGMENT DAY, Nathaniel Branden's memoir of his affair with Ayn Rand A remaindered new copy of A SUPPOSEDLY FUN THING I'LL NEVER DO AGAIN (the title essay alone being well worth the $5.98 -- I laughed till I cried when I read it in Harper's) Also ... The New Yorker Book of Business Cartoons Grace Slick's memoir, autographed The Years With Ross, by James Thurber (used) And some other ones, I can't think now.
