    THANKS from the editor

    THANKS, READERS! For the past number of years, readers have been asking me where they could get a copy of WANDERING STARS. People kept telling me that both WANDERING STARS and MORE WANDERING STARS had become 'underground classics.' My stock response was 'It's out of print, but really I'm really looking into getting both volumes back into print. Really!' Enter publishing mavin Stuart Matlins of Jewish Lights. He and his team have done a wonderful job reprinting WANDERING STARS...and MORE WANDERING STARS. The books are having a new life, and the reader response has been gratifying...overwhelming. So, readers, old and new--thank you! P. S. Okay, I'll cop to it--I gave WANDERING STARS 5 Stars. What can I say, I liked it too! A blessing on your heads!
