Joseph Michael Straczynski would just be way too goddamned long a credit to
appear on a book...you'd need two volumes just for the name.

Joe Michael sounds weird.

Joe Straczynski is too abrupt a transition, you think it's a nice, simple name
then it whaps you really hard. A name like that would frighten cats.

So you work your way up...just the one initial, J, then Michael, two syllables,
then you let fly with Straczynski. Thnk of it as a train, receding into the
distance, ten thousand letters, no vowels....

He heard me say it just once, on the phone.

I didn't see him again for six days.

Then the moving van showed up....
