Hester

HESTER      Growing up in Asheville,  N.C. in the 50’s and 60’s seemed, at the time, to be filled with a rhythm of adventure and strange encounters sprinkled with an assortment of particularly interesting and somewhat odd characters. One of those persons who fascinated me as a child was my father’s friend “Hester. “       My dad was about as straight an arrow as anyone could find. He seemed to a preadolescent, somewhat indolent son, frankly boring. Looking back from a perspective of 70 years, I…See More

I was always afraid someone would get hurt-namely me! Its one of those games that makes grown-ups yell things like "Somebodys going to…See More

The first wee printing of my book has sold out and the second printing arrived late Wednesday. I am very grateful for its reception, especially amongst folks who remember these old techniques or heard tell of them from elder relatives. Like this one, from the mother of a friend and…

How Lizard World was Born

I was down in Florida with my family, visiting a zoo that harbors a variety of reptiles and other exotic animals. We were part of a small audience watching a zookeeper demonstrate how to put an alligator to sleep by stroking its upturned belly. Something about that man fondling that alligator amused me so much that it struck me with the force of a revelation: I had just met one of my characters. Not long after that I sat down at…

Just trying to contact Rob, to thank him for neat (and insightful) review of Russ Kick's

The Graphic Canon, especially the part about the Gilgamesh entry!

    Kevin Dixon, the artist, spent first two years of his life in Asheville, where I had gone back to teach, 1965-67, having finished MA at Hopkins, after 4 yrs at UNC, and the five before that as a student at Asheville School (9155-60!)  Just wanted you to know the Asheville connection, and
