There's so much that we share that it's time we're aware…Heather links to a McSweeneys article today written by her friend John. When I read it, I realize that I went to high school with someone who has the same name. I email Heather, can this be the same person? At lunch, Derek says he's working on getting a book published. A friend has just recommended an agent in NY. The agent's checked out SFStories. He likes what he sees. He wants to get in touch with Derek. I say, can this be John Hodgman, the literary agent with whom I may or may not have attended high school? Yup, says Derek. Yup, confirms Heather. Yup, confirms the email in my inbox from the Man himself. The same John, class of '89, Brookline High School…it's a small world after all.
