    4 miscrients set off on a journey to the Home land of bloodshed and nobility.%hours on a cramped winged bird 1 hour of twisted turns on a never ending road frought with peril and into a small box at the end of a distant road in rural Texas we arrived. Roadworn and weary we stepped into the lair. ..........

    Amazing things were happening inside, 4 men welcomed us as we opened some of mexicos finest and sat down to count. I was asked what my toughest were, and I said Ive never seen it cause The Burn was hogging it the entire way. so I sat down to read and critique. ....I was not prepared for what I saw that day . It was obscure fresh to a world of stagnant behavior (cloning of the old and regurgitation) fresh ???? It was a new take on what so many had done before. after the first story I flipped through the photography to give my professional 2 cents. I wanted to save the rest of the book for a later date to read in lea sure with my cigar,rocks glass of whisky and my trusty 45.

    amazing sheer art in literary form . nothing I had ever seen before , yet it was familiar in so many ways.

    My 2 cents turned into a penny as i conveyed most of my feelings to the men in the room. Many in the art world try for what you will see , its no easy feat and it takes a trained eye to carve it out in a new way .....

    Ryan John and Jeff............... you have done just this ..... the hard work and offering will not go without its just deserved.

    Thank you to everyone I met in my ol home state and good to catch up with all that I knew before . see you at the roundup

    I have about 1/5 of all the books we printed in the shop right now. Out of those, I've shipped most of the Alliance pre-orders and will be packing and shipping all week. I should have the rest of the inventory in by late this week and the packing will continue.
