Box of books



A heavy box arrived for me today. It contained a stack of these, paperback editions of my Hans Andersen book. Happily, the rushed and last minute fixing I did to the cover one horrible day in April has come out ok. I've never been happy with the cover of this book, as I've mentioned too many times before, and I still have a hard time looking at it, but at least that day I rescued it from a fate that would have made this surprise package a very depressing one. I like the feel of it in paperback, heavy but floppy, with nice fold-aroundy bits at the edges...

The sunset was quite pink for a bit this evening.

I think all my books are on Amazon. Including a book by John Hegley that I never did! This is a UK paperback edition and not out until November (I think), but you should be able to find the hardback easily.

I ordred the hardcover as well as the shark book, but I had ordered that earlier to read some of Viviane's work.
