Catching Up

Yesterday I went hunting on Piet Ditmar's Dunhill Ranch. I am not 100 % yet (100 % may be a ridiculous concept, making age run backwards), but I walked about four miles in rugged terrain and came back exhausted but happy, having at least SEEN game. Most exercise I have had in 6 months and biggest distance covered in years. Now I must walk-- solvitur ambulando- and get in REAL condition.

Not just recovery, but because of work deadlines as well, I have been neglecting the blog, and have a lot of links, reviews, and other things, which I will trickle in over the next few days.

Meanwhile Skyhorse seems to have settled on a cover, having tweaked it some more. My only request is that they substitute a photo of Taik for the one they had included. Libby sniffed "supermodel", and I pointed out that no field dog ever had such groomed ears.



And the reprint of Rage, with the cover by Michael Quinton and the intro by Helen, is ready to go too, but it is in PDF and I don't know how to convert it.

UPDATE : Jackson just converted it. Thanks Jack (and Karen who offered to)...

It's McCaig. I think the jacket had an "r" in there.

It did, Bill- I fixed it already. For the cover of the new Rage they had one that spelled MY name wrong.

I can't wait for the book-- but when I saw the cover I also wondered about the glam Saluki! Taik is who belongs there.

It must be great to be out walking.
