Some of you are jokingly…at least I think you’re joking…about the FBI coming to see me about the stuff I write. This conversation may or may not have actually happened.
Unknown asshole at the door: “Mr. Wood? It’s the FBI.”
Me: “Again? What do you want this time?”
FBI: “It’s about your latest book?”
Me: “What about it?”
FBI: “We find some of the things you are saying to be similar to some people we’ve had a problem with in the past.”
Me: “Really? Who?”
FBI: “Well, uh, Edward Snowden for one, and, uh, Katherine Mitchell and um, Mark Felt.”
Me: “Mark Felt?”
FBI: “Yes, um, Deep Throat?”
Me: “Oh yeah, he was a good writer.”
FBI: “Then you understand our concern?”
Me: “Is it a copyright thing?”
Anyway, Episode Six of The Twelve Shepherds is out. Jack’s buddies outside my door will just have to deal with it.
