A reminiscence of the Onyx Sequel appeared at the Skylight Books blog a month back, when John Leech died. I picked up a postcard the other day at the makeshift devotional shrine nearby. I say nearby because Cafe Figaro, which currently occupies the space in the old Lena Luckenbush Building (which was the building yours truly moved into when he moved to Los Feliz in 1990 for good), discouraged any sidewalk display in the immediate space.
The Skylight Books blog also hit on the Amazon gay caper; Rodger Jacobs had a decidedly different take. I am more with Jacobs on this one.
