    • That you like something of what I wrote is indeed a delightful surprise for me. Please comment whenever you like. The content and prose style of your blog looks appealing to me as well.


  1. Thanks so much, GG, for stopping by and deciding to follow. (After my clicking only two “likes?”) Actually, you picked a bad time; the blog is treading water with cartoons, re-blogs and other ephemera while I toil on at a longish piece that refuses to come to an end. (However, there’s always the archives and the selected pieces on “Pages.”) For starters, let me ask about your Daedalus: Inspired by father of Icarus or an offspring of Joyce’s Stephen? 🙂

  2. Thanks for following The Immortal Jukebox Gary. I hope you have found some entertaining music and writing and perhaps made some discoveries. If you haven’t visited for a while come on over and check out some recent posts! Good luck with your blog. Regards Thom


    • I do catch a post once in a while, Thom, and enjoy it. But I guess I’ve signed up for too many blogs and don’t know what the hell I’m doing, so I miss a lot too. With your emphasis on 60s music, you might like to know that my next novel will be set in 1969 featuring a bunch of hippies struggling comically and tragically with the contradictions of the 1960s counterculture. (My recently released novel is still free [the Kindle version is free, anyway — paperback cheap but not free] for 3 more days on Amazon if you want to pick it up.)
