Acknowledgements

For the section on limericks I am particularly grateful to Jan M. Alejandro, poet, playwright, composer, and dear friend and neighbor, who invited me to write limericks for the 1st Annual Los Angeles Limerick Festival that took place at the Altadena Ale House in September, 2010. While I had written some limericks years ago, I had forgotten about them and been devoting my writing time to more “serious” literary genres. Jan’s encouragement for my belated return to this genre became a passion that led me to decide on constituting an important part of this small book along with some other things I had written for fun.

I am also appreciative of the support of Mike Rademaekers, who invited me to read some of my limericks at his Secret Rose Theater in North Hollywood, and of course to Eugene G. Schwartz, publisher of Worthy Shorts, who enthusiastically made this book happen.

Leon Schwartz, October 2010
