ME: The last column I handed in has no explanation of why it's my last
column.  They may ask me to write a real last one, in which case I'll
say something like, "I don't like this publisher very much lately and
I have better things to do with my time."

ME: The pic on the website is of the actual Magic Castle, which is a
private club I belong to.  You can read about it at their website.
The house itself is an old mansion in Hollywood that they converted
into a restaurant and club.  (By the way, Carolyn and I were there
last night with Gordon Kent and his wife.)

>Any chance for a 20th anniversary Groo T-Shirt?  I'll buy half a dozen!

ME: I don't know.  Bob Chapman of Graphitti is coming by on Tuesday to
pick up the signed bookplates for the new hardcover.  Maybe I'll
discuss it with him then.
