Re: “Worlds Collide in Thomas Christensen's '1616'

Great review! I'm definitely adding this to my reading list. I love stories that tie together parallel timelines and I look forward to seeing how the photography and prose work together.

Re: “Swap Lit Like It's Hot

Yes, some of the books that are donated are sold on ebay. They are not all given away for free. Rich W, Albany

Re: “Swap Lit Like It's Hot

We should keep in mind that this is a for profit business, not a non-profit. In addition, this business can't be a happy event for local libraries. While Mr. Miles and partner make a profit off the books they sell on ebay, our libraries are going to see fewer donations to their book sales. And this comes at a time when libraries are already struggling, because of funding cutbacks. I'd rather see the proceeds go to the libraries. Rich W, Albany

Re: “Camp Allegory

N.B. The Young Writers' Camp at Mills College campus has 3 veteran teachers working with its 50+ young authors, sharing inspiration and experience. Tom Dunlap and Susan Lee have been leading YWC camps for more than 3 years at Mills and have extensive experience teaching multiple subjects across grade levels during the school year! It's our collaboration that makes the YWC at Mills such a positive experience. Tom initiated our relationship with Diesel Books and arranges the YWC reading there every summer. I am lucky to be working with such creative, enthusiastic, and inspirational colleagues.

Re: “Trekking the Med With Joel Stratte-McClure

To clarify, I emailed Joel while he was on that trip with his friend Judy to discuss some health concerns. He told me he was too busy with a female journalist who was doing a story on him to talk on the phone or get a fax I wanted to send him. I filed for divorce a few days later. Believe who you want to believe. I believed for far too long.

Re: “Trekking the Med With Joel Stratte-McClure

I helped Joel edit his book from 2004-2006,even bought the books to help him write his book proposals for various book agents. I know exactly what is truth and what is fiction. I also came up with the title, am credited/thanked for doing so in the book's credits.

Re: “Trekking the Med With Joel Stratte-McClure

And we were there too! I know who is more believable and it's not HG. Here's some further good reading and a snippet of my day on this epic adventure with an epic adventurer http://followtheidiot.com/joining-the-idio…

Re: “Trekking the Med With Joel Stratte-McClure

"Harold", as someone who HAS accompanied Joel on several of his outings, I can contest that the printed facts and events are indeed true... You should take a deep breath, and maybe take a hike

Re: “Trekking the Med With Joel Stratte-McClure

Wish I could be there for Joel's talk at Books Inc. - it's sure to be a fun afternoon. I've had the pleasure of MedTrekking with Joel in three countries on two continents, and his book is a fascinating account of his adventures. A great read.

Re: “Trekking the Med With Joel Stratte-McClure

I've never met -- and certainly never MedTrekked with -- Harold G. Perhaps he/she will appear in Berkeley on Sunday.

Re: “Trekking the Med With Joel Stratte-McClure

Joel has a great gift for meeting local people and asking the right questions. I traveled with him in Burma; his solitary meanderings and the reports he brought back deepened the experience for all the rest of us. I value both his insights and his company--and look forward to reading anything he writes.
