Great. Send me your address and perhaps phone number also in case I send
them UPS and I'll get them out. I also have a xerox copy of a smaller
booklet he did for AFB if you want to take that one also. I don't mind
doing clean-up on books, I just am not able to handle scanning. Someone
read me half of "A Marked House" a few years ago and I had to stop because
it was too disturbing, brought up bad stuff from my own childhood, but
that's a compliment - I've rarely read anything that vivid dealing with the
issues involved and certainly not from that time period. I want to say
"enjoy it" but that's not exactly the right way to put it. I'm looking
forward to finishing it, though.

I would be happy to scan the Twersky books if you can send them. I scanned The Face of the Deep; it's an amazing novel!
