The Midnight Crier (at 2:00 a.m.): Penpal frolics

Some people I know through letters (and one I've met) have confetti-worthy news. I just received a postcard (including a Bahr headstone and truck) from Howard Bahr; Judas Road will be out in 2006. Ingrid Hill's Ursula, Under is on the list for the Orange Prize. And Philip Lee Williams has three new editions coming out: The Heart of a Distant Forest from University of Georgia; A Distant Flame from St. Martin's/Griffin; and The Silent Stars Go By from Hill Street Press in Athens.
