Hello, Harry!

To accompany my article on Harry Stephen Keeler in the latest issue of Fine Books & Collections, editor Scott Brown has assembled a kickass online Keeler bibliography.

Flip to page 48 in the new issue, and you'll also find that Scott's pulled off something that I couldn't: namely, tracking down a surviving Keeler relative! Here's Susan Sylvan on her step-uncle Harry: "[Keeler] was not what you would call a communicative person. He seemed like he was in his own world.... He was very taciturn. He may have been communicative in what he wrote, but not in person."

Sounds about right...
