Column: Local cities got name-checked in ‘Inlandia’ anthology

The “Inlandia” literary anthology was a recent column topic. In reading the book, a few amusing quotes jumped out at me. I collect ’em, with commentary, in Friday’s column.

It’s been a while since I wrote a column of fiction quotes about the region. A bunch more such quotes are saved up, and I’ll try to present those in the near future, now that this column lays some groundwork.

Column: Science fiction story’s alien touched down in San Dimas

Sunday’s column begins with a couple of items that will warm the hearts of the nerds in my audience, as I find local references in two stories by Harlan Ellison. After that, two Pomona-related stories from the past, one about a 1959 robbery that involved the star of TV’s Wyatt Earp, the other about the 1938 filming in town of a Bing Crosby movie.

All the above items, by the way, were written last year for use during either a dry spell or a vacation. I finally got to use them during the latter. Hooray! I’ll be back at my desk Monday.
