Between the Lines

As always the editors of the U.S. 1 Summer Fiction issue

had difficult decisions. With nearly 100 submissions and only 45 poems

and stories selected, good stories and poems inevitably got left out,

even though we expanded this year’s edition and added eight pages

to the allotted space.

We invite everyone — including all those who submitted their work,

whether we had room for it or not — to the writers’ party on Thursday,

August 8, from 5 to 7 p.m., at Barnes & Noble, MarketFair. We will

begin introducing the writers at about 5:30 p.m.

As has been the case for the past six years, the Summer Fiction issue

also is a double issue of U.S. 1. Our next publication is Wednesday,

August 7. Our office will be open as usual in the interim.

Re venture capitalist Robert Johnston ("The Energizer

VC," U.S. 1, July 17), Johnston graduated from Princeton with

a major in economics, not engineering. Also, he sold Praelux to Amersham

Pharmacia, not to Novartis, and the company that began in Stamford,

Connecticut, known as BioCyte, is now called Pharmastem and is located

in Malvern, Pennsylvania.

I read Richard K. Rein’s column on the Endless Mountains

of Pennsylvania (U.S. 1, July 17) with great interest. In June we

rented, from a West Trenton writer, a nicely furnished A-frame cottage

just outside of New Milford, a town with a "1950s" look.

Traveling up and down the dusty-stone secondary roads made us wonder

if we made a right choice for a vacation. We did manage to search

out quaint antique shops and family restaurants and in the hub of

the town of Montrose, we learned that house auctions are a speciality

for locals and dealers. There a furniture salesman told us that Susquehanna

County’s whole population is only 40,000.

New Yorkers come down to the `country’ to play (reasonable) golf in

these mountains — which we also did after reading the entire literary

contents left for us at the cabin. Each day at the convenience store,

we snapped up the USA Today. Without "Street News" or cell

phones it did get very quiet.

Brisk night winds did not warrant igniting the wood stove, but it

was close, as the temperatures then were at 55 degrees. A cow made

her way over to look in our window, but so what, this makes for good

writing embellishments.

If city folks want to find out more about the Endless Mountains try

searching at or

We’ll go again I’m sure — it’s a way to clear a writer’s mind

and to get away from New Jersey’s traffic and noise.

I NEVER RESPOND to reviews, but I feel compelled to tell you

how much the July 17 review by Jack Florek means to me. I will treasure

the kind words for a long time to come.
