As promised by the very industrious S.J. Budd, this strangely beautiful book arrived in my mailbox today! Gunnar Larsen has outdone himself with the cover art. You really need to see it in person either in this beautiful paperback version or an E-book to get every fantastic detail. Many of my favorite writers are inside and I can’t wait to get started, so bye! Wait! Just kidding. I have a couple more words to say-INDEPENDENT PRESSES and WRITERS ROCK! Seriously, these are the people you want to support. They are working Dads and Moms who are following their dreams. Their dreams make the world a better place and reading makes us smarter and more connected to each other. Real books mean real jobs for us, too. Manufacturing, shipping, the US Mail, and even recycling or resale at a thrift shop to help the homeless. Be a part of the phoenix rising-support your favorite independent writers and presses today! Why not start with APHOTIC REALM?
