Charles Stein

In 1973, Carlos Castaneda gave a talk at the California Institute of Art (CIA) in LA, where Clayton Eshelman was poet in residence at the time.

After, Clayton started to ask a question that began, "There is a poet in Boston ..."

Before he could utter the next syllable, Castaneda raised his right arm, pointed the first finger towards the heavens, and loudly exclaimed:

"That Harvey Bialy is a creep!"

When Robert Kelly told me this story (both of us laughing very much), I remember thinking that the *real* reason Castaneda was upset was because Harvey (quite unintentionally, I'm sure) gave away his game, and not because of all the notoriety of the Boston Phoenix book review/letter marathon.

So you see Prof. Moore, there are *really* famous people, who just like you, once called Bialy a creep.

Sleep tight, and don't let the bed bugs bite.
