On the other hand...some people still ask for permission
John Trumbold and Peter Donahue just contacted me to ask for permission to reprint one of my stories, "The Circuit," in their anthology Reading Portland, which will be published by the Oregon Historical Society. "The Circuit" is from The Kind I'm Likely to Get, and I actually found myself rereading it recently and was surprised that I could find it as funny as I did. Sometimes old stories just get thinner and thinner the more I look back at them. This I read and kept thinking..."Where did that line come from?" But in a good way.
