An amendment to Letz’s fine feature


I’d like to thank Danny Letz for his excellent profile (“Publication-house blues: U alumnus and author struggles to gain recognition in the cutthroat world of publishing, ” Oct. 18), but I’d like to clarify a couple points.

Where it speaks of my upcoming death, I’m misquoted. I never use “pass” for “die.” I spoke the word “die” at the interview.

My successes were possibly over-downplayed, since that was the theme-the difficulty of getting recognition. However, two important publications, meaningful to professional writers and to the departments of English and creative writing, were left out. Western Humanities Review and Weber Studies.

Thanks again to Letz for his very fine work.
