Michael S. Malone’s being maudlin — thinks he’s a Kiss of Death to tech books, having killed two. Harrumph, say I. I’ve got five under my belt so far (including the Weekly’s tech section, though I believe I was technically just the party keeping the poor dear on life support) and I am but a mere infink compared to many of my industry betters. (And those are the ones I remember offhand; imagine how frightened we’d be if I checked my resume.) Two kills with two cover stories, though — that’s kind of impressive. He may yet work his way up to the Typhoid Mary ranks.
