I hope everyone is having a wonderful 4th of July holiday! Gary and I

tomorrow we'll be at a gathering of folks from Everything2
(www.everything2.com) in the Hocking Hills. This coming
weekend, we'll be at InConJunction in Indianapolis:
If you're at the convention, be sure to drop by our table and say hello!
My sincerest thanks go out to all of you who've ordered SPARKS AND
SHADOWS. I know that for some people, $19 for a book is pretty
steep; if you're on a limited budget, I am completely sympathetic.

(and the nice folks at HW Press) besides buying it yourself. It's
free and relatively easy.
"What oh what is this easy, free thing I can do?" I hear you cry.

libraries usually have an onsite suggestion box. The book has
a listing in Worldcat, which makes it a bit easier for librarians
to look up:
People or libraries who wish to send a check or money order to
purchase the book should email HW Press' owner Nanci Kalanta
for further details. I've got most online
stores that stock the book listed on my website at:
