Can't believe I omitted the E. Bay store that's been INCREDIBLY nice to the book -- Mrs. Dalloway's in Berkeley. I plead forgetfulness due to writing.

Aha, not having seen those posts I went into Books Inc on Fourth Street Thursday and bought a copy. Gift was a success, of course. They had one more copy.

I finished _The Enthusiast_ a couple weeks ago and was compelled to go to ebay and order an old copy of New West. Sadly, no Charlie Haas but there is an Ed Ward piece in there. I feel in love with the WELL instantly because it reminded me so much of the smart literate humor in New West. I literally thought oh, this is where my people went! Sad I missed this interview.

Huh! Which piece? I've lost a lot of that stuff.

A perennial! I [heart] Chris Strachwitz. Such an interesting guy. And a great label, too. Got Xerox?

Chris Strachwitz gave a "fireside chat" talk at the Hillside Club a few months ago -- he was great.

I finally got a copy of this book and read it. LOVED it. I recommend it to anybody who has ever been passionate about something only a subset of people care about. That's nearly everybody I know. I guess I'm an enthusiast of The Enthusiast now.

I don't believe CHarlie is aroudn here much, but I exchanged emails with him a few weeks ago and he is deep into the writing of his next novel.
Lisa Harris (lrph) Tue 28 Sep 10 15:01
I hope he can join us for that one, as well.
