Hello, I'm new to the list, and, seeing the thread on Twain
impersonators, thought I would ask a question in a similar vein.  Is
there work out there in which Mark Twain figures as a fictional
character?  Has he been imitated on the page as well as acted on the
stage?  If so, where?  What was the quality, what was the type of work?

In conjunction with my Masters in humanities project, I did a creative
dialogue with Mark Twain and another figure.  I wanted to do something
of a fantastic nature, not unlike the works these two giants.  Now I'm
wondering what else might be out there.  And if so, how do you assess

I'm also looking for markets for papers done in connection with the
project (literary essays).  Thinks in advance for any tips you may

A nice place to lurk, this list.  :-)

I had a "technological meltdown" a while back and since have been
unable to communicate much online (except briefly and very
illiterately) because I have no voice recognition software on the
machine.  My dexterity is limited by disability.  I have to transfer
communication by CD if I want to send something online--cumbersome. I
do all my work on an off-line machine now with the software.  I guess
the cut off from online communication has beefed up my productivity
some, though.  For that I'm glad..--sue
