super sneak peak...

at one of the seven "Presentation" copies of Sunlight, a hardcover version sitting in a custom clamshell case. each of these will have two original watercolors, one each by Hosh and I, with images drawn from the text, lovingly inserted:

yeah, wish I coulda been there to help...but seriously, a helluva job. never seen a book so beautiful, especially not with my name anywhere on it...

and oh my god, hosh's watercolors are majestic. I'm sure, jb, if you email him nicely he'll forward some of the images to you.

though I imagine after Big Bill is done working the shit outta him, he's just gonna be glad to get on the plane and go home to sleep.

yeah, I was going but there were some issues here at home that required my presence, so I was unable to attend the Great Literary Happening of Aught Nine.

indeed it sucks large. especially since it was so much work, I would love to have added my weak arms and tiny wrists to the heavy lifting by those two linebacker looking motherfuckers...I mean, the recent pix bill sent (stained glass style, obscuring the faces) makes them both look like mountains of humanity.

hosh's arms look like my girlish waist, jesus.

will send away.

But fuck all that.
That's for them who are to come.

Hugz 'n kisses to the Missus.

having met both Bill and Hosh i can say that they are in fact linebacker of humans. you and i tend toward the other side...

in fact, Hosho's wrist is about as large around as my thigh. the man is humongous. i wouldn't be exaggerating to say he is 6-foot 8-inches tall and well over 450 pounds of raw, unadulterated man.

Bill is a more modest 6-foot 5-inches and 390 pounds. still impressive. i've seen both hunt and kill an endangered rhinoceros with nothing but their brute and cunning. they slaughtered the animal with their hands. it was a sight.

who needs heroes and legends. i just want more vapid tv celebualities!

rhinoceros meat if there's any left.
