Here is the outline for my proposed new novel. A SCANNER DARKLY, which I told you about. It's a good long outline, running well over sixty pages. I guess you can't sell it to any publisher until I write a bunch of sample chapters, but anyhow this is what I'll be working on for quite some time.
If you'd like to show it --for example to Doubleday-- that would of course be fine with me. Otherwise, hang onto this outline while I continue from my carbon.
Let me know what you think of it, and meanwhile I'll keep you posted as to how I'm coming with the novel itself.

P.S. I swear, Scott, this is shaping up to be the greatest novel ever written. Or at least the greatest novel I've ever written, anyhow.
