There's been some talk on the list - check the February 1998 archives.
I'd recommend it, certainly, but there are better books about
Willeford to be written. Herron heisenbergs all over the book, which
I found off-putting. I think generally people thought it was a lot
better than nothing.

: I'd like to read some of Willeford's short stories. Is there any
: source for these?

Dennis McMillan (publisher of _Willeford_) still has _Everybody's
Metamorphosis_ in print, I think, and you may be able to scrounge up a
copy of _The Machine in Ward Eleven_ for not too much if you look
around. Those are the only easy sources I know.
