BILL CRIDER'S POP CULTURE MAGAZINE
If you're going to name your talented musician son after me, the least you could do is spell "Allan" right. Or maybe send me a free CD.Congrats, pops.

What's with this clear trend in eclectic Texan writers and their musician/techician offspring, anyway? Those of us from Alaska who dabble in both wonder if parental relocation might've helped.

Que bellisimo, mi hijo.
Come to think of it, at least one of Algis Budrys's kids is a musician/tech type...it isn't that unlikely, the artistic streak running through the family...and certainly less potential ego-bruising than generations of writers (the Benchleys, for example)...
One of my great-uncles was a painter and writer. It's from my mother's side of the family.
Love that album cover photo.
