David Wallace Jackson wrote a script that randomly changes the names of the characters in my 2005 Tor Books novel Someone Comes to Town, Someone Leaves Town -- a book in which the characters' names fluctuate, with only their first initials remaining constant. It's an absolutely delightful idea!

After finishing Someone Comes to Town, Someone Leaves Town, I was surprised to find that botherment and uncertainty had vanished into satisfaction. Somehow this loose-jointed, wandering, ramshackle compendium of casual weirdness (perfectly expressed in the title) produces the kind of intimacy - even authenticity – more often associated with a personal journal, a blog, even autobiography.
