And... if this book does well would you consider and an equivalent volume on Lee?
Lee and I have met and chatted on - in the fullness of time let's see shall we? Don't want to over-promise before anyone (including me) has even seen the Thurston book - you might hate what I've done! :-)
In terms of people I couldn't/didn't get hold of - surprisingly few I mind missing (in the end I felt 'complete' when I viewed the work: if I'd added more people in I'd have had to chop even more words out to match the publisher's word limit - increases in text quantity increase print cost which increases cover price so I didn't want to do that.) Steve Shelley, we were in touch but went no further. Dan Ireton (Dredd Foole), I apologised to him the other night that we didn't get in touch until too late. I'd have liked to catch Yoshimi. Jim O'Rourke and Beck aren't much up for talking. I was sorry Georganne Deen wasn't available and that I didn't get hold of Barbara Ess. I'd like to have dug more into Thurston's writing and poetry...
