One thought on “Halloween, Edited by Paula Guran

  1. I was happy to see I can get Emily Alone on my Kindle. I left my copy at my brother’s house and have been missing it alot. If it doesn’t arrive in the mail today, I will download it. I came to two readings in Ithaca, and noticed that you might not be in favor of ebooks, but they are very convenient! Thank you so much for the wonderful books.
