Yerby Award for Fiction
I want to thank all of my friends and relatives for their good wishes and congratulations on my winning the Yerby Award. Nobody was more surprised than I was when the fourth runner-up wasn’t me, and then the third wasn’t, and so on until I was the last one standing! I have to thank my mother for all the stories she told me about her childhood, and about the years she, her mother, sister, and brother spent living with my fundamentalist great grandparents. Most of the incidents and characters in Halley are fictional, but, in many cases the beginning ideas came from actual events and people.
Again, many thanks.
