Fire And Rain
This is my oldest published work with the three companies who have decided that I am to become an un-person, and my work is to be flushed down the memory hole. It was written in 1996 and published in October of 2000.
Fire and Rain contains some rather unkind remarks about a certain Sea Hag who was then at the height of her power and who is now running for President of the United States. In the coming presidential campaign season you will be deprived of my observations and insights on this woman's character, because someone in a carpeted and air-conditioned office made a phone call to someone else in a carpeted and air-conditioned office, and these two faceless individuals decided between themselves that you have no right to read what I have to say about the aforementioned Hildebeest. It might give you pale peasants ideers, and we can't have wretched serfs like you getting ideers in your noggins, now can we?
You have until August 14th to order, and after that, for good or ill, them bad ideers will not be allowed to infect your mind, since someone so much better and wiser than you will have decided you don't get to read this novel.
