I see there's a new book coming out called "A blink of the screen" and described on the cover as "collected shorter fiction." Before I rush off & order it, what is in it? And what if any overlap is there between this book and the hard to find earlier work "Once more with footnotes"?

It's what was missed and not in OMWF, I have seen the contents listed and had I been on my desktop I would have copied and pasted them.

If go and click on the book to look inside, then contents it shows all I think a couple of stories are duplicated.

There is very little overlap with once mre with footnotes. Most of the stuff included has already been published elsewhere and only 2 of the 70 articles that were published as "Uncle Jim" made it into the book. I would have thought more of that work would have been included.

(cont'd) ...but it's one for the completists I feel. [I've no idea why Amazon decided, all on its own, to truncate my message.]
