IT'S A WHOLE NEW YEAR

In every way. Soon this site will get a remod, courtesy of master designer Blaine, but meanwhile, here is some news you can use:

The paperback edition of “The Best Seat In The House” is now in bookstores and at Amazon.com and Barnesandnoble.com. At only $13.95, it fits any budget. Buy one for the library and another for the bath.

I’ll have the distinct honor of visiting wounded soldiers at the Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington on Wednesday, Feb 6th. My editor from Harper Collins, Gail Winston, is flying down from New York and we will be meeting recovering paralytics and handing out books. I only hope it does some good.

Check out this user-generated video about the book on You Tube. http://youtube.com/watch?v=koslh7iEs7I
Thanks, "Hyperwires," whoever you are.

I’m writing an article on artist/director Julian Schnabel for the next issue of ABILITY Magazine (http://www.abilitymagazine.com)I met with him last week on an awards-tour swing through LA. If you haven’t seen his film, “The Diving Bell and The Butterfly,” about a man with “locked-in syndrome,” the most extreme form of paralysis, then you are missing out on something profound, moving, and in its own absurd way, comic.

Finally, there is an upcoming one-day So Cal symposium on transverse myelitis and other rare neuro disorders on Saturday, Feb 23th in Anaheim. Sponsored by the Transverse Myelitis Association, noted doctors in the field like Dr. Douglas Kerr from Johns Hopkins will be presenting an all-day educational program. For more information, go to the TMA web site -- http://www.myelitis.org/.

Support the WGA strike! Later.
