Re: RARA-AVIS: MacDonald bio

As usual, Richard Moore has come through with an insightful and interesting take. There was one bit in the book about MacDonald's relationship with the Deals that I enjoyed: the $50 bet that JDM made with Deal that JDM could write a book that would be published in hard back, sold to a book club, and made into a movie. JDM wrote THE EXECUTIONERS and won the bet, but Deal didn't want to pay off because the book was only an "alternate selection" of the book club. The bio could have done with more stories like that one.
