Since I aspire to his percussive virtuosity, I decided to extend Starr's M.O. to all aspects of my life and strive to make IN the best how-to-write e-rag in the world. And just as he joined the best there was, so have I. The trick will now be to keep up with the immeasurable talent combined herein.

Anne R. Allen is mad as heck and she's not gonna take it any more. In a time when she feels democracy is taking it on the chops, as it were, Allen declares war on George W. Bush’s war on terror and incites all writers to riot against powerlessness. Buzz Burza laments turning “retirement age,” J.R. Kambak pays homage to All The President’s Men, Alison Tharen stresses the importance of cultural diversity in kids' lit and James Marck, on many levels, goes to work.
