So cool!  

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*? :)

I love that kind of thing.

My step-daughter (who is 31) lives in San Jose and is a pagan too, so runs into people who have read my nonfiction Llewellyn books. Every once in a while, someone says to her, "Your mother is DEBORAH BLAKE? Wow." Never stops being fun.

*blink* I'm very glad that giant squealy fanboy sounds can't be heard over the Internet.
