Proof that I sometimes care about books other than my own, for brief periods, at least

Holy Tango is experiencing one of its periodic web resurgences. Last night, Trip pointed out to me that I'd gotten a shout-out on Ken Jennings's blog (thanks to a post on his message board from a person I don't even know), and today I got linked from Kottke, among other places. Hooray! The day of my eventual domination of the lucrative literary parody industry creeps ever closer.

Not to seem like I'm logrolling, but the mention on Ken's blog reminds that I should tell you that if you haven't read Brainiac, it's more than worth your time. As I previously learned when he was the special guest at this year's crossword tournament, Ken is an engaging storyteller with a natural sense of humor, and given his extremely high fellow-traveler cred, he's the perfect person to do a sympathetic job of telling the stories of trivia geeks. Also, he absolutely hated Crossworld, which is practically enough of a recommendation all by itself, as far as I'm concerned.

I read about your book on Ken's blog, clicked through to the online text, and eventually ended up here. I just want to say, What a great book!!! I am definitely going to buy it as soon as possible! I am in awe of your talent.

Oh, and nice blog, by the way. I love the ties!!

Which reminds me, I was going to ask you: have you read Prisoner of Trebekistan yet? So. Funny.

His favorite line is my favorite line. Ergo, I am a genius.
