I'm tempted to write back from a scratch address to build up a sort of trust and then, by the by, ask whether the author can ... bend metal or make compasses move with his mind. Seems to me that an author who has to resort to spam to move an unpublished manuscript is pretty much washed up. Not even British footie teams want him on their side. Well, heck, I have music to make. Anybody want to play with him, be my guest, but then, please keep us informed of the entertaining parts.
