................In truly good writing no matter how many times you read it, you do not know how it is done. This is because there is a mystery in all great writing and that mystery does not dis-sect out.It continues and is always valid.
each time you re-read you see or learn something new.

1952; Hemingway letter to Harvey Breit.

He could have been describing,
Who single handily, ended the whole debate on 
Mystery vs. Literature.
By writing.


  1. Ken, from the bottom of my heart, thank you for such kind words.

  2. I came to Craig McDonald's work via your own, Mr. B. I owe you, as well as Craig, a debt of gratitude for the great pleasure I derive from his work. As well as your own, of course.

  3. Looked up a review of Head Games and it sounds like my kind of book. Order will go in at the local bookshop at the weekend and hopefully it'll arrive with a fair wind behind it.
