While manning a table, there'll be the occasional lull when no one is in front of you and you start casting your eyes about. In my case, I cast my eyes downward and saw the back covers of my books, including older books. And I ended up reading back cover blurbs that I'd not read in years -- as when Kevin Killian blurbed Menage a Trois With the 21st Century and when Tan Lin blurbed Black Lightning. And read them and thought, Hey, those old books aren't bad, are they?! :)Thanks to the blurbers!
