I chose this week’s file because I was curious to see what accounted for its bulk. Instead of a pile of old correspondence and contracts, nearly everything in the Kennedy folder is supplementary material. And as it turns out, it contains information on not one author, but two!



Curious about Word Stems, I pulled the book out of the library and was delighted to turn to this entry, which seems fitting given the amount of crime fiction we now publish.


Now if I could just find a computer with a floppy drive…

Kate Kennedy is the author of the novel End Over End, published by Soho Press in 2001.

John Kennedy (not that one) is the author of Word Stems: A Dictionary, published by Soho Press in 1996 (and originally published in 1890).
