During the time I was at SPY as co-founding co-editor and editor, its first six-and-a-half-years of existence, I put my byline on one piece — “The Irony Epidemic,” in 1989, which I co-wrote with Paul Rudnick.

I also wrote the opening “Great Expectations” essay in each issue from the first, in October 1986, through December 1992, when I handed off that duty to Larry Doyle. You can find all those in Google Books’ SPY archive.
