Greetings from the other side!

The other side of the pond, as they say. I'm spending some time in Europe before the fall semester starts up. At the moment I'm on a little (rainy) island off the coast of Scotland. In a few more days I'll be headed off to Copenhagen to meet up with some friends, old and new!

Happy Birthday, Aldous!

Today is the 115th birthday of Aldous Huxley, writer -- novelist, essayist, poet, screenwriter, and one of the great thinkers of our time.

If you are interested in learning more, I've written two books on Huxley: Huxley in Hollywood and Aldous Huxley Recollected: An Oral History

Both books are available in limited quantities from my website,
