My 500th registered book!

Actual cover art is different - brighter and cooler.

Adopted this book and many others from a very kind person yesterday. Thank you. I will eventually read this collection of short stories.

I took this to Vegas this past week and read about half the stories while on the plane and while poolside. Good stuff so far.

A good collection of stories, but I would've liked more variety of setting and pace, though with a collection entitled Rock Springs, I shouldn't be expecting the setting to change much. Good stories with good thoughts. The first few stories absorbed me the most, and "Communist" was a good closer. More of Rock Springs on my book blog.

Released 9 yrs ago (6/14/2009 UTC) at Main Street (see notes for details) in Vancouver, British Columbia Canada


It's Car Free Day in Vancouver! Rock Springs was left on the median between 12th and 13th Avenues.

A lovely little find at car free day on Main Street. I'll be sure to pass on the gift. Only a couple pages in, but so far so good.
