Great column, Spider. And thanks for the book, which I haven't had a chance to read yet, but am delighted to have.
The new hardcover of TANNER'S TIGER was supposed to be dedicated to you. I guess because it's set in Canada, and so are you. The publisher lost the dedication but says he'll manage to get it in the second printing, if there is one. I thought of letting this fiasco go unmentioned, but if it does by some miracle appear in the putative second printing. . .well, you get my drift.
When/if I get it together, I'll send you a copy.
