A backward glance...

What fun!

Christina Wilder reviewed Val/Orson... and put dreamy forest pictures with her words. I didn't even know this site existed, though it seems very bustling and active. It's another reader-as-reviewer site, only each review gets its own page, and Christina has illustrated the page with appropriate pictures. Anybody know anything about it?

Val/Orson is out of print now, but it'll be back in ebook.

And wasn't that a beautiful jacket/cover? Courtesy of Clive Hicks-Jenkins, marvelous painter, once and future theatre man, and dresser of the most gorgeous books.

Alas, I must once again remind large numbers of Chinese salesmen and other worldwide peddlers that if they fall into the Gulf of Spam, they will be eaten by roaming Balrogs. The rest of you, lovers of grace, poetry, and horses (nod to Yeats--you do not have to be fond of horses), feel free to leave fascinating missives and curious arguments.
