The Immortality of the Printed Word

Sorry for the light blogging this week; I've been trapped between Priscilla and Charybdis and I'm not clear yet. However, in the course of researching something absolutely unrelated I stumbled across this gem of an interview with John Sladek.

I personally can't read it without choking up a little, as John was a good friend and I still miss him. But I commend it to your attention because it's a fascinating example of how, in this writing trade, our voices can far outlast our mere physical selves, and it also happens to be a bit of really good writing on the subject of writing.

Hey, John. Prosit!
