Alfred the Goat, the author of the popular teen book series Ellipses, died yesterday. Mr. the Goat fell in front of the 9:15 Express train to Harlem, right before his scheduled book signing at Florish and Potts. One fan, who was originally quite peeved that Mr. the Goat hadn't shown up for the signing, went on the record as saying, "Oh my God! Now who will write about Jared and Becka now? I need to know about whether she goes back to Edmund or not!"
