As I type this I've been told by our cat Callie ( in her own cat way that is) that she will sit on my arm while I type this newsletter to all of you. As my wife LeeAnn says, "Callie is rurn't" (ie ruined ). She's been spoiled since birth and it's all my fault. She's a "keepah" as my Maine buddies would say. However, she shore is 'eavy while I'm typing.... time to move the "furr-ball," just to the side there girl ;-).
Our shipper Gene has just gotten out of the hospital today - ten days! He's home now and repairing, but he's going to have to heal for a bit, so it's still me at the helm shipping. I actually enjoy shipping books, but I've got to helm the rest of this boat we call the Overlook too. Gene is okay, but it's going to be a some time to let him heal. Thanks for all the well wishes, I have passed them along to him.

Awright... Callie is snoring (it is 2 am here) next to me - LeeAnn's right.. she's rurn't... (that's pronounced Rurr-n--t said quickly ) and I need to call it a night. Y'all keep on shining and I'll be back in 2 days.

Tyree, North Carolina. Off the Blue Ridge Parkway, the Great Smoky Mountains are imbued by a timelessness that co-exists with the modern world. Except for one place. On Tormentil Mountain, timelessness is a dark abyss, and a long abandoned estate, Wildwood, seems to hang in the midst of that abyss. Four poeple are about to be trapped in Wildwood's mystery: retired Army Colonel Whit Bowers, preparing a feasibility study on the estate's resort potential for Wildwood's corporate owners; teenage Terry Bowers, spending time with his father on a divorce visitation; Arn Rutledge, a hillman and Whit's fellow World War II hero: and Arn's beautiful, sensual Qualla Cherokee wife, Faren. Rutledge is obsessed with the Wildwood legend, which goes beyond all folklore and superstition: in 1916, a mad millionaire's pleasurdome became a lost crypt for a gilded age's rich and famous: since then, the mountain has been haunted by uncanny storms, plance crashes, blue ghostlight, noxious vapors... and baely glimpsed, unhuman creatures from the depth of myth... creatures Arn Rutledge is determined to capture. But no ralization or knowledge can prepare them for what festers in Wildwood: a hellish fairyland: a demented dream made real; a place where genius and jealousy, illusion and vengeance, ancient sorcery and modern science are joined in a nightmare that shatters the borders of reality ... and time....
