Schenectady? SCHENECTADY?!? Well, gosh darn it. No wonder I never made 
it out of the midlist genre paperback ranks. It's nothing to do with 
lack of talent; all these years I've been getting my ideas from some 
cheap ripoff joint in Poughkeepsie. That's probably the outlet mall of 
sf ideas whereas the Schenectady club is the Neiman-Marcus.....and I'm 
not in their secret club. Sheesh.
