I've known about this for some time, but I'm ecstastic to announce that Nathaniel Lambert (author of Sideshow PI: The Devil's Garden, It's Okay to be a Zombie, and the forthcoming The Horribles) has written the introduction for Strange Men in Pinstripe Suits.

I'm going to let it rest and wait until my heart is desperate to write it. In the meantime, I'm editing my dissolving girl story, only it turns out she doesn't quite dissolve.
