I just got tipped off that the Wikipedia edit war over whether or not my book should be mentioned in the extremely worshipful entry on Meher Baba, which is fiercely policed by Baba-lovers, has re-ignited. Page down to "Rachel Brown's book":

Hey think of it as free publicity, odd confusing publicity, but free. :)

I love the box atthe top saying "Meher Baba has been listed as one of the good articles under the good article criteria."

Free publicity?

wow. trying to follow that arguement made my head spin.

In other news--just got back from OKC the end of last week, and your book was awaiting me in the stack of mail. :) Will probably crack it in a day or two...

Well, hopefully all the arguing will convince people to pick up your book - which I just finished reading a couple days ago and enjoyed quite a lot, btw - to see what all the fuss is about. :)

Did you happen to catch any of that "humor" about you that they mentioned? I'd love to have read that!

I'm just in awe of the size of the "Meher Baba" box on the bottom of the main article. In awe, I say. Krishna and Jesus combined have less text devoted to them on Wikipedia. (English Wikipedia, that is.)

From my perspective, Baba and the Babaists are treated pretty well, considering, in the book.

Wikipedia edit wars make me tired ("You took out the Oxford comma!"). At least this one has some substance to it. And hey, you may get your own page out of it.

Rosabibi, whoever she is, kicks ass and also has the patience of several saints to argue with those idiots.

Greetings from Ohio!


Hi, I'm David in Ohio, a 46 year old man seeking peace and quiet.

Hey, I just checked out your book at the Fairview Park (Ohio) Public Library and I've enjoyed the first thirty pages or so. You are such a wonderful writer! Very witty!

I've been infatuated with India since 1980 (the murder of John Lennon brought it all about! Tell that story at another time.) I've collected hundreds of Indian records, tapes, CDs.

Er.. I don't know if this message is gonna post as I don't have an account with the site. I'll drop you another line as I get more into the book. Tata!!
