The science fiction writer Philip Jose Farmer has passed away, and as a result I saw his author photo today. Kids, this is the way to do an author photo: WITH A PIPE. Do NOT do it while chewing the stem of your eyeglasses and wearing a hat! But a pipe won't solve ALL your problems! If you smoke a pipe, KEEP YOUR SHIRT ON (unlike Faulkner, below). It is okay, however, to sit in your bathtub with a cigarette holder. It makes sense to have your shirt off in the bathtub! In fact you would seem crazy if you kept your shirt ON in the bathtub. Hope this helps!
