Rain Taxi: The Auction

The great and glorious Rain Taxi is having an auction, which is good news for anybody who likes interesting books. Even before I started writing for them, Rain Taxi was -- both in print and online -- the place I most frequently discovered great books I'd never heard of. Their interviews are often marvelous, too -- see, for instance, the recent ones with Neil Gaiman, Ben Fountain, and Clare Dudman. (Note to Gaiman fans: there's a bunch of signed and rare stuff at the auction.)

The auction ends this coming Sunday, January 21.


  1. Thanks for the Rain Taxi link. The Ben Fountain interview is great. Talk about perseverence! 17 years after quitting law to write, he gets some love...

  2. Here's how to make delicious chocolate covered strawberries. First of all ensure that the strawberries you are intending to

    use are dry, then allow them to be room temperature warm prior to making them. After the strawberries have been covered in

    chocolate, put them in your refrigerator to cool, but do not store them in the fridge. Consume within 1-2 days.
