Subject: (urth) Terry Scoggin, Texas deadbeat

Ladies and Gentlemen,

We have a John Crowley fan, name of Terry D. Scroggin, who lives in Valley
View, Republic of Texas.  Email tjscoggin@ntin.net

He ordered a chapbook and I sent him one.  Then his check bounced.  I
contacted him by email two weeks ago and asked him to send a money order or
cash to cover the amount plus the bank charge, a total of $12.

He responded quickly:
>Well, I did in fact close that account, but only last week.  According to
>the bank (on this end), the check was paid, but then they screwed me out of
>over $250, and that after only a year of service.  I don't know where it

It is that "Do whatever you have to do" part that continues to bug me.
Maybe it means something different in Texan, but it sure sounds to me like
"Hey, it isn't my problem (and you aren't likely to come all the way out to
Texas for $12, but if you do, you can try and squeeze blood from my

Well now we are up to $20.  I'd like to publically shame and humiliate Mr.
Scroggin into paying the $20 right now before it goes up again.

To this end I'd like people to tell him not to be a jerk and to send the
money order right away.

Any help in this would be greatly appreciated!
