Okay, that’s awesome. I just got an email from a friend–the father of the boy that Billy Holliday’s son Robert is named for, in fact–who said he was hanging out with his son’s class on a beach day, and he (the father) was reading the Dresden Files. A girl asked what it was about, and he said “A wizard in Chicago.”
“Oh, cool,” she said. “I’m reading something similar, but I can’t remember the writer’s name right now. I’ll get it for you.”
“Heh,” my friend said, “I actually know someone who writes something similar, CE Murphy.”
“THAT’S IT!” the girl said!
How cool is *that*? :)
