"It has to do with the order of chapters, doesn't it?"

So, as I've mentioned before, I'm always quite nervous when I see someone reading one of my books in public. I feel like I really shouldn't be there, or, alternately, like I really should say a few solemn inspiring words to commemorate the occasion. Usually, though, I just wind up pretending to read my phone till the moment passes.

The other day, however, I did wind up talking to the Andromeda Klein-reading girl on BART, because she recognized me from the book cover and approached me. It was her third time reading the book, she said, and she was convinced that there was a hidden, coded spell in the text, and was hoping for further clues. After the conversation, she informed me that I was "no help at all" and declined to let me take a photo for my AK gallery. But she was real nice about it.
