CONTROLLED RELEASE NOTES:

Thanks book-man-8, I'll be releasing this book soon.
I just droped yours in the mail yesterday.
Thanks for trading.
This is Tin Winton's first short story collection, published in 1985.
The Stories included are:
- A blow, a kiss
- Getting Ahead
- My father's axe
- Lantern stalk
- Thomas Awkner floats
- A measure of eloquence
- The opressed
- The woman at the well
These stories were enjoyable, the style, the sparing of the words, the image they carry... all contributed for my enjoyement of this book.
Even though I was mesmerized by only three of the stories A blow, a kiss, Getting ahead and My father's axe I felt they all convey some strong feelings with a powerful language.
Now I'll pass the book along to conto who also likes Winton's books.
They are extraordinarily well written, that's for sure, but... it gives me the idea there's always something missing. It seems he doesn't want to say it all, or just wants not to forget the idea and puts it on paper so that he can get back to it later on.
Anyway, I would be willing to read everything the man wrote, therefore: thanks a lot for it, K!
(it'll go back to you asap)
