Bob will provide excerpts of his novel in process read by Rebecca Campbell. “I am in
engaged in two pieces of writing. The first is a work of fiction, the second a framing document.
The fiction is what we will be reading on October 30th. It is about a musician studying
improvisation and how that alters his consciousness.” Bob is introducing it and answering
questions. Guest Rebecca Campbell will read the actual story instead of Bob, “I like the sound of
her voice more than the one in my head.” Guest John Oswald will be present and supply first
