Going out of print

3/2/09 — Sad news. Two of my books are going out of print: the hardcover edition of AIRMAIL TO THE MOON, and the hardcover edition of I’M GOING TO BE FAMOUS. Fortunately, “Airmail” will still be available in paperback, but “Famous” will be gone-gone-gone after 23 years in print. The fact that this was my first book published makes it especially hard. Still, on the other hand, I’m extremely grateful to publisher John Briggs at Holiday House (a true gentleman in every sense of the word) for keeping it out there as long as he did. Rest in peace, I’M GOING TO BE FAMOUS. May all of your bananas remain forever ripe . . .
