O.K. Here's mine. (Will Short didn't like it.)

The small town girl was engaged to a world class violinist. He complained that he couldn't get good bows anymore. She knew that the trees in her town grew wood ideally suited to violin bows. He came to acquire some wood with a promise to perform in the local theater but found that nothing was suitable, so he canceled his performance.
The headline in the local paper ~


You kind of sort of asked for it....

Must be. It's showing up on my list but I've since learned that not all Member-uploaded covers seem to make it onto the system. Can you see it if you look at my library? I've got it under William-Ellis and tagged Main, Fiction, Science fiction, TBR, W
I don't know if you are as obsessive as me about getting the right covers in as sharp a form as possible. As a fellow owner of "Out of This World 4" you might be interested to know that I have submitted a cover. I don't know that it is the same as your copy but there was no copy in LibraryThing at all, so it might be a match for yours too.
Well, the Cabell group is now set up, here: . Please join unless you don’t want to and spread the word if you know anyone else who might be interested.
I mean to add a photo of the author or a Cabell-related image, but so far have produced only error codes. Also, there is some sort of textual glitch that Forbids the used of the word ‘style’ in Group Descriptions (I know this sounds too weird to be true, but ‘tis so), and in the last paragraph of the Group Description where you see the words ‘forbidden forbidden’ please substitute ‘style.’
