Second, I want to thank the minister emeritus of First Unitarian Universalist Church, Houston, Rev. Robert L. Schaibly, to whom the novel is dedicated. Bob served First UU from 1982 until his retirement in 2002. So much cool stuff happened at that church during those 20 years, I wouldn't know where to begin. He is a figure of stratospheric intellect, with a beatific, reassuring presence, whose studies of zen led him to become its living avatar. Present moment...wonderful moment.
Now the novel that spent four years gestating in my mind and my Mac has its own FB page.
I'm not going to insist that anyone buy the book before liking the page. That said, I'd really like for all of you to buy and read and enjoy the book. If you do, I'll have an incentive to publish a new, typographically improved edition of A Small Town for Its Size for your further enjoyment.
