I was able to make a visit down to Austin TX to see some of the DeLillo archive that is now held there. While I'm not at liberty to publish the materials I examined there, I was able to get some new information on a couple of items, with a bit more to come in the future.

First is the confirmation of a 1979 DeLillo story that has not appeared in any previous bibliographies, called "The Sightings." Details on the Stories page and in the Bibliography.

Second is information on the genesis of Amazons - see my new 'Notes on the collaboration' section.
