John Updike

I heard that Updike passed away. I hope it’s not true. I loved his Becht (sic) books especially, which I know is blasphemy since they are minor in his canon.

Also heard a rumor RofF is leaving us. oy.

    I left a link to the story as I read it, from comcast. It was being filtered. Maybe it will show up?

    Yeah, I heard about it a couple of hours ago. RotF? Realms is closing as well? I guess things come in threes, as I learned today that the site where I’ve added review/interview content for years, wotmania, is closing in the summertime. Ay, what a melancholy convergence there!

    I loved working for Realms. Laura Cleveland was an awesome editor.

    I hope you’re talking about some other publication/site.

    Signs and signage – road signs, movie marquees, newspaper headlines real and imaginary, municipal signs, electronic message boards, storefronts, etc. – function as important indicators of the shifts, changes, and developments in Angstrom’s consciousness as he grows older throughout the decades chronicled in Updike’s ‘Rabbit’ series.
