About meI sit queasy, jittering, uneasy. I am saving my labor for insane reading.

The bird is in the bag; the bag, in the egg; the egg, in the rock; the rock, in the little finger; the little finger, in the moon; the moon, in the hunting dog; the hunting dog, in the steamship; the steamship, in the forest; the forest, in the powder-box; the powder-box, in the ring; the ring, in the kitten; the kitten, on the desert island; the desert island, in the the blotter; the blotter, in the empty head; the empty head, in the night.

Ahhhhh, so glad to hear Peter DeVries is gathering adherents still. Thanks for your message - it put a smile on my face! :)
All aboard the Erickson Express!
Only 4 stars? Too much of a good thing? I don't know that I even want you to read my first novel. Have you ever written a novel before, Mr. slickdpdx?
MUTIS!!!

But alas, only the first three novellas in the series; still need to find the last four.

Check out user "seite" sometime. That's where I got it. Easily the best selection of Latin American Literature I've ever seen gathered in a single location. Also grabbed Macedonio Fernandez's novel, the one with the 50 prefaces--the "novel" never really begins.
