William Link: (from a New York Times interview about his writing) My father was a textile worker in Philadelphia; I have no idea why I have a mind like this. I once had a perfect way of getting rid of my wife, and I checked it out with the Los Angeles coroner. He said: "That will work. But if she dies, you're going to be my first suspect." I've never used it in a story. I might use it yet. It involved a garbage disposal.
