Western New York is reading about Black Blade Blues

My uncle is a syndicated columnist whose work appears throughout western New York and on the web.

He’s a warm, funny writer who views the world with a keen insight and wit. We even subscribe to the hometown paper he started in (the Springville Journal) so we could get regular copies of his column.

When I sold the series to Tor, he was very supportive, and asked lots of questions. This morning, he published a column about the book, reading, and me. It’s very nice.

Go here and read it here. I think you’ll enjoy what he has to say.
