Wow! Check this out…

Follow the link below to a news story in the Seattle Times.

As someone who writes for kids, I often get push-back from various studios/networks/publishers etc. who are worried about my putting things in shows/books that kids might imitate at home and get in trouble. Or hurt themselves. (For 91 episodes of “Are You Afraid of the Dark?” we never saw anybody strike a match to light that campfire) So…it’s nice to see that it can work the other way too. Nice work, William. Glad you’re okay.

    I had forgotten which book it was too. (And so had William. I spoke with him. He thought it was The Rivers of Zadaa) But it was The Merchant of Death…when Bobby knocked Loor into the river thinking they were being attacked by a Bedoowan knight who turned out to be…Alder.

    Oh yeah now I remember. I thought it might have been lost city of faar, because it was the only one I remembered having much swimming. But I don’t think there were rocks in the water on cloral actually, so I guess it couldn’t be.
