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

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.

how much the July 17 review by Jack Florek means to me. I will treasure
the kind words for a long time to come.
