Is this a kissing book?

This week has been run-off-your feet busy.  So of course, the computer started giving issues as well.  Or not so much the computer, but we are getting lots (and lots, and lots) of spam.  I think we’ve caught most of the spam, by upping the spam filter, but the occasional non-spam message gets caught in the filter, too, so we have to go through each one.  If you have sent us a message, understand it may take a couple of days to get to.

“My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die.”

Vale William Goldman, the author of Princess Bride, who passed away late last week.

Many of us have watched the movie so many times we know it off by heart.

“Tyrone, you know how much I love watching you work, but I’ve got my country’s 500th anniversary to plan, my wedding to arrange, my wife to murder, and Guilder to frame for it. I’m swamped.”

He didn’t just write Princess Bride of course.  He also wrote the screenplays for Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid and All the President’s Men, among other things.  Including the screenplay for the Mel Gibson/Jodi Foster movie, Maverick, another movie I love. For most of us in speculative fiction, however, it’s Princess Bride we all love.

“You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.”

Many of us have watched the movie so many times we know it off by heart.

Thank you, William Goldman, for the story.  You may be gone, but your stories will live on.
