Ooh, I can't wait for this one! I love a good ghost story. :)

Wow, when do you sleep? For that matter, the same could be said of Nick Mamatas.

I'm amazed by your productivity.

Nah. I'm a slacker--this is my full time job, don't forget--editing anthologies --so not as much work as editing a magazine/webzine plus anthos :-)

And I DO try to stagger due dates.

That's always a good thing.

Oh, right! Sometimes I forget that not everyone has school plus other jobs.

Still, you like good stories.

Please tell me "That Girl" is about the legend of Marlo Thomas.

Sorry to disappoint--it's a Fijiin legend instead ;-)


I can imagine: someone is haunted by her hat. ;P

I will now condense the entire visual spectrum of my youth into one brief continuum: Mary Tyler Moore throws her hat into the air and it becomes the spaceship from 2001.

Benji did not feature in my youth. This was in a period between celebrated dogs. Marooned between Lassie and Benjie. A canine celeb wasteland, if you will. Sorry for the threadjack.

I was born late'70s, so you're probably early then?

But perhaps you understand the Hawaiian Punch guy's hat.

If you've got a story about the legend of the Hawaiian Punch guy, that would make up for the lack of a Marlo Thomas story.

I'm 1960. Different commercials. Even more iconic than the Hawaiian Punch guy was, oh, Goofy Grape.

WOW, I'm in great company there!

Now this is MY kind of book! Most excellent, I'm really looking forward to this!

Good. That's what I like to hear ;-)


I pretty much automatically buy any anthology you edit, Ellen, but this one looks especially delicious. I can't wait!

Terry Weyna

thank you Terry!

Urban legends? Ooooh. :)

I'm definitely looking forward to this one. :)
