I happened to be reading Publishers Marketplace, the industry rag that lets you know what books are being sold to publishers by various agents, and I came across a book that made me laugh so hard I nearly wet my pants.

Here is the description:  Les Edgerton‘s THE GENUINE IMITATION PLASTIC KIDNAPPING, in which a couple of two-bit hustlers come up with the bright idea of kidnapping a crime boss’ fake hand, and hold it ransom for some serious money, to Eric Campbell at Down and Out Books, by Chip MacGregor at MacGregor Literary.

I just had to write to Les.  Turns out he’s quite a guy.  We’ve been writing back and forth, and I plan to buy this book as soon as it comes out.  You might like to read his blog in the meantime.

Why am I telling you this.  If you like someone’s work, write to them and tell them so.  It really makes their day.  And sometimes it makes yours, back.
