Book Signing

Thanks to everyone who came to my "Fall & Winter Turkey Hunter's Handbook" book signing today at the Kittery Trading Post. Apart from catching up with some outdoor industry friends, and even making some new ones, several former writing students, Foster's Sunday Citizen newspaper column readers, and others dropped by, including a longtime Black and Gold fan who had me sign his copies of my book "The 50 Greatest Plays in Pittsburgh Steelers Football History." It was great talking to all of you. --S.H.

Star Island

I spent Labor Day evening through the afternoon of Sept. 4 at Star Island, miles off the New Hampshire coast, teaching a Granite State College creative writing course. No TV. No radio. Newspapers ignored. Great people, and likely one of the best classes I've ever had the pleasure of conducting. It made this modern day multi-market iMac G5 freelancer want to stay there another year or so, working in one of the loft rooms with a view, holed up with a borrowed Royal typewriter, with plenty of ribbons, paper, and the intentions of crafting a fat novel to blow everything else I've ever written and published in the past quarter century away. Star feels ancient, awesome.

Here's a gull's eye view of the place. --S.H.
