Another Amazon review of a friend's (or rather friends') work

Check out the following link for my review of The Phantom Chronicles Vol. 2, an excellent anthology of stories about Lee Falk's classic hero, including tales by my friends and fellow Wold Newtonites Win Eckert and Matthew Baugh.

Thursday in the Big Apple

Still in New York, and still having a good time. First order of the day was going to the Museum of Modern Art, where exhibits on Pablo Picasso and Maya Deren were particular highlights (I was especially glad to finally see some of the latter's work). Then on to Midtown Comics where I picked up The Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe A-Z Update #3, Samurai Executioner Vol. 2 and Path of the Assassin Vol. 1 (both by the brilliant team of Kazuo Koike and Goseki Kojima, creators of the legendary Lone Wolf and Cub), and, last but most emphatically not least, The Phantom Chronicles Vol. 2, featuring tales by, among others, my good friends and fellow creative mythographers Win Scott Eckert and Matthew Baugh. So far, so good.

Plans for this evening include ordering pizza, watching Bunuel's That Obscure Object of Desire and the rest of Pulp Fiction, and a shiteload of reading.

Just thought y'all ought to be updated.
