Sneak preview: The Book of Gabriel

This is the image/cover mockup I'm working on for 'The Book of Gabriel,' which is a collection of my serialized story "The Traveler," which was in turn part of my "366 Days" online writing project. The story is "an Endtimes Fable" telling how a man named Gabriel got mixed up in the return of the Shekinah (the female aspect of God) and Satan's scheme to subvert her power. It explores parallel realities, dream worlds, time/space paradoxes, myth and legend, chapters from 'The Book of Cain,' the meaning of forgiveness, and the power of Joy. Look for it to debut in October at the Local Books Alive event at the Panama City HQ of the Bay County Public Library.

Jack Saunders, Tim Riley and Matty.
Tuesday evening, I attended the opening reception of "WORDS," an exhibition of mail art organized by my friend Matty Jankowski (he of the bowler hat in the photos).

Matty, Jack, and Bettina Mead.
This is a quick photo blog to show you some of the folks in attendance. And considering how Matty told me the history of the saying, "A picture paints a thousand words," I'll let my pictures do the talking for his "Words."
Photographer Patrick Engman.
Artist Paulette Perlman, right.
The show will hang through September, as part of the library's upcoming focus on censorship and Banned Books Week. Watch your words.
