  1. What a fab idea to introduce books by authors I may not have known of.

  2. Entered! Thanks!

  3. Dear Mr. Farnsworth,This is the only place i could find that would let me write a message at your site. Love you books immensely.I bought and read Burning Man today from Amazon and wanted to pass along a small mistake in your short story. Near the end,when they are in the airport,(88% through according to my kindle) Cade is appraching the first of the 2 suspects. They make eye contact but then the story has a security guard calling out to towards them. The guard is first described as a man “half jogging toward them from the checkpoint, his belt and badge rattling…” The very next paragraph (2nd sentence) reads “The TSA agent had a wallet in one hand. Her face was open and friendly. Novak had left it behind, and she was trying to return it.
    Just wanted to bring this to your attention. I hope you or someone that reads this can bring it to your attention.
    Thanks for your books I hope you can do a 600+ novel of Cade one day. And if you ever need a proof reader:)
    Oh, and sorry for the loss of your precious puppy. I recently had to put one of mine to sleep because of a prolonged illness. They give you such love but it always seems that it has to be with the pricetag of such sorrow upon loosing them. My heart is full of such fissures.
    All the best, Van
