"I raced from Pennsylvania to Seattle on my motorcycle in three days. It was like an alpine climb where once on, I could not get off. I simul-soloed the north face of Mount Temple with Ward Robinson. I scavenged for sensation, sought my self in the rewards of being out there, across the Border. I had to go harder, higher, and longer. When I recognized it as addiction, I stopped having fun, but I couldn't stop altogether. I let the jackal take control and wound up in Pakistan." ( )

KISS OR KILL Sit back and join the ride with this collection of edge-of-your-seat climbing stories by MarkTwight aka Dr. Doom. "Somewhere out there somebody understands these words and knows they matter. They were written in blood, learned by heart." --Mark Twight

- BANFF award-winner

Extreme climber. Extreme writer. Extreme personality. No matter what he's doing, Mark Twight takes a definite, and often controversial , stand. Anyone who knows climbing knows Twight's name, and anyone who knows Twight's name will want to read this book. Each story is told in Twight's taut, in-your-face style. Brand-new epilogues bring each piece full circle , providing updated information and fresh, hindsight perspectives.
