Erica Hoffmann’s cover story (“I Was a Blair Witch Extra,” 10/13) was, without a doubt, the funniest and most rewarding piece of writing I have read in a very long time. Kudos to you and your accomplices, Ms. Hoffmann, for embarking on such an unglamorously valiant yet winning experience! Your story was well worth the probable distortion and humiliation you wreaked upon your body.

You have won me over—consider me your newest fan. I enjoyed your story enough to send copies home to my family in Philadelphia so that they could revel in the same pleasures that I did. You can bet that I will be going to see Blair Witch 2 when it eventually opens, mainly to catch your star-making helicopter shot (and maybe even Kira’s heinie). As successful as it may turn out to be, please plan on keeping your day job. I won’t stand for Hollywood robbing the writing world of one of its eminent stars.
