    Miette, so you’ve come to our good old friend Mr. Collier! His stories are certainly fun, but we hope you have “His Monkey Wife” handy, too–there’s a novel I’d love to hear you read the entirety, and it’s one I’ll proselytize until my dying day. May I reiterate the sentiments of the above posters? After suffering through listening to my own podcasts for quality control, it’s nice to come back to the balm of your voice.

    I wonder what your dog and your park acuaintances would make of the squirrel feeder we have in our backyard–many people think this is akin to feeding rats (well, there was a muskrat out there last week… ). By the way, in your previous story or so there was a rip in the seams you might or might not care to mend. And yesterday we found a collection of Shirley Jackson’s previously unpublished stories we wish we could send you. Thanks again for all the splendor.

    Collier’s “The Chaser” is said to be a short short story but as I read it, it has a long long underlying interpretation and varied ideas just pop in. I don’t know which to believe in. I wish I were talking with John, he knows what to tell me. Amazing, really.
