Mailer does two interviews (one in New York and the other in Playboy) with his son John Buffalo on politics, protest, marijuana and the Clinton-Lewinsky affairs, among other topics; these will become the basis for their jointly written 2006 book, The Big Empty: Dialogues on Politics, Sex, God, Boxing, Morality, Myth, Poker and Bad Conscience in America (06.2).

In August, Letters on An American Dream, 1963-69 (04.7), a collection of 76 letters concerning Mailer's fourth novel, edited by Lennon, is published.

His interview with Richard Stratton, a friend since the early 1970s, concerning his views on marijuana, perhaps his most extensive comment on the topic, appears in the November-December issue of High Times.

Now living full-time in Provincetown, Mailer continues work on The Castle in the Forest (07.10), and hosts Texas hold 'em poker games several nights a week.
