The music industry today is indeed confusing. Many new groups are able to promote themselves and start to climb the ladder to popularity without the support of the big record lables. This is a good thin in a way. But whee is it heading and where will it all end up? I will devote more time to Emma Pollock and let you have my opinion later. Thanks for the introduction.

A Crime at Half Eleven

Ted O'Neill ·
Woe is the state of music these days.  There seems to be very few outlets for quality music on the radio, and the entire industry is undergoing an almost geologic shift that has companies, artists, and middle men surfing on shaky ground. Last...

She is really good, but how sad and empty a song!

Very nice voice...glad you included the video. Absolutely well worth watching. I agree, an earlier hour would probably produce a better audience. Still it is up to her methods of "getting her songs out" that will really sell herself to the public. You did a good sell for her.

How refreshing to hear an author promoting using the library. Good interview and filiming guys. Keep 'em coming. Now, how bout a little more about the actual book? Have you read them?

Re: An Interview with Emma Bull and Will Shetterly

Yes, I enjoyed both books! "Territory" is what Emma likes to call a "Secret History" book. The events *could* have happened the way they're described, and history wouldn't reflect it. It's a nice mix of old-west and fantasy. "The Gospel of the Knife" explores a very interesting idea regarding religious traditions, set in what is an interesting modern fantasy landscape. You can actually check out "The Gospel of the Knife" online, here: http://qwertyranch.blogspot.co...gospel-of-knife.html...

An Interview with Emma Bull and Will Shetterly

I talked with Emma Bull and Will Shetterly as they swung through town on their book-signing tour for Territory and Gospel of the Knife. ...the old adage goes rules are made to be broken- WHEN you can pull it off. And man, does Shetterly ever pull it...

Don't worry- I'll only be gone for a few days and I'm working on a scientific process that can freeze high fives for weeks.

Be careful, you may receive a shipment of severed, frozen hands -- er, frozen high-fives.

Hadn't considered the whole demented side of that issue. Thanks for the warning Steven.
