The Author

close up right profile sep 06




One evening in the fall of 1979, the author, Ed Linz, found himself sitting at a bar in Washington, DC.  He started to write on a napkin near his drink.  He mailed that napkin with an article entitled, Beltway Bandits, to a publisher in Spokane, WA. (www.spokane.exchange)  That began the Eyes Right series – a collection of occasional pieces datelined from around the world, - wherever the author found himself with a new napkin.  There have been lengthy dry spells, followed by periods of frequent, if not regular, submissions.  Here they are, at last, collected for your reading, and hopefully thinking, pleasure.  If you have comments or thoughts, please direct same to EdwinRLinz@gmail.com ……..enjoy!!
