Bill Cosby's nephew

I'm being followed on Twitter by Braxton A. Cosby -- the nephew of comedian Bill Cosby.

(And yes, I did confirm he's who he says he is.)

It's not as big a deal as I could make it out to be: He's a writer, you see, and the majority of a writer's Twitter connections seem to be other writers. Still, it's an odd feeling, to have any degree of connection to my favorite childhood humorist. I haven't had a chance to read his fiction, but if he has a fraction of his uncle's creative talent he's worth checking out.
