J.J. Strang Writer's Society
Issue No. 14
October 17, 2004

From Bill Olson wolsonitol.com
It has been a while since our issue no. 13. Sorry but it has been a hectic summer. I was pleased to see messages went out to Strang Writers from several members. I will be happy to put out another issue of our newsletter as soon as I receive material from you.
Vickie Speek's offer to chair the 2006 conference is terrific and John Baldwin's reply also bodes well for this effort.
I've attached results (such as they were) from my Internet search for information on the two-pounder which was used by Strang & co to intimidate those on Whiskey Point. Anyone have any additions or corrections?

The following from Bill Cashman: wcashmanbeaverisland.net
“My sense of where our website is: we have reserved the name, but not done anything else. We have to address two questions: what do we want on it, and how do we pay for it? I think we all feel comfortable with Rob Baldwin as the webmaster. We have an inkling of what we want on the site:
“a) information about the Strang Writers Group: its inception; its mission statement; a list of members (and their Strang projects, other projects, and other interests); a report on the first conference and plans for the next two; copies of the newsletters; and a forum;
“b) information about Strang: possibly an objective biography assembled and modified by the Group; possibly reprints of scholarly articles and books; and
“c) information about ongoing and finished work related to Strang: scripts to Strang plays; and drafts of stories, poems, articles, and essays.
“Last month I lightheartedly proposed that the homepage contain a stern facial image of Strang with the kind of dashed line used to demarcate phrenological zones imposed on it; captions could appear to both sides, with arrows pointing to particular zones, but instead of the captions being such things as ‘locus of vitriol’ they would be the buttons for the site, with such labels as ‘writings on Strang.’
“The plan for a story (including the ending) in which Strang is played by Jimmy Cagney sprang into my head a few nights ago, and has stayed there; if it's still there when I have some time, I'll write it out.
