"The Tooth Fairy left the name DreamHaven Books
under my pillow. Usually it's a 25-cent piece;
but given the current value of the U.S. dollar,
the value of this tip was far more glorious.
DreamHaven is a book-seeker's cave of miracles."

- Harlan Ellison

Way Back

I'm on the way back from bringing my son, William, to college in New York.  Leaving him there, there were tears, mostly mine, but Lisa is very sad and depressed too.  We're a sad pair.  While I know these situations go on all the time, it's very hard to say goodbye to your only child and send him off into the world.  He's a grown man now and he has his own life to live.  I'm getting very teary-eyed just writing this.

On the way back we stopped in Philadelphia to visit Lisa's brothers and her sister-in-law.  That helped.

I'll report more on the trip soon.  But I discovered late in the convention that one of my very good friends and long-time customer, William C. Martin had died in late June and I never heard about it until I read his name in the recent losses in the community at the convention.  Bill was a wonderful person and very passionate about books.  He called me every week or two to ask about new books and just chat for a bit.  I would see him at conventions when he was well enough to travel and he just loved perusing the dealer's rooms.  I remember once he was ...
