I Am That Is

Redwall by Brian Jacques was one of the first fantasy novels I’d ever read.  The dog-eared copy still sits on my shelf and I read it every year or so.  It’s a wonderful book and I have enjoyed it tremendously no matter my age.

How much have I enjoyed it?  On the wall of my office hangs a collection of book covers in frames.  Each one comes from a book that I believe has had a huge impact on me as a writer and a reader.   The above cover is on the right side and in the center.

Brian Jacques died today at the age of 71.  Pardon me for having a bit of something in my eye.
