One Hour Left.... submit your entry for naming the new Paul Powers Collection. Go here for the rules.

I have to tell you that I recently started reading the stories again - the scans that Altus Press sent me - and I'm getting very excited about this collection. I've read all these stories a few times now, but it's been a few months since I looked at them. Last night I read one, called "Hang Noose for a Prodigal," and I was stunned by how well it reads, even now after 60 years. I'm not just saying that because Paul Powers is my grandfather.

Just goes to show you that it always helps to take a break when you're working on something, whether you're writing it or editing it, because it helps when you go back to finish working on it. You'll come back with fresh eyes, as I like to say, and perhaps a new appreciation for what you're reading.

I was going to sit down and knock some out yesterday when a g-d virus hit my computer. I couldn't even use my word processing. It was just fixed a little while ago by my baby girl's boyfriend. Sorry. I'm sure others came up with better ones than me anyway.
