... but fan mail that combines a near-death experience with a whiff of blasphemy? Sublime!
This was sent by a young writer from Texas, and he also included the book he collaborated on, "Food Wars: A Noodle of Hope." It's a bit like a quality novelization of the movie "Space Balls" — and it's really good. Check out its previews!

|Time for a dance off!|
Last week, I was lucky enough to speak with 425 young writers who came from all over the state for the Oregon Writing Festival at Portland State University. It was amazing — I wish I could explain how inspirational and funny and heartwarming these students are, but I ain’t got the words. (Some writer I am!)
|Before the festival started...|

|I react in terror to a simple question about the airspeed velocity of an unladen European swallow.|
|"No, I said 'put your hands in the air like you DON'T care.' But you clearly *do* care. Security? Remove him!"|
|One writer brought her own copy of one of my books to get signed. |
But I wonder if she's really read it? ;)
