The following two posts concludes the novel, Small Boat Sails into Big Mystery. Thank you so much, all of you who have journeyed the whole distance. If you have been reading this, now is the time to come out of the closet, like Amanda, the patron saint of lunch meat. Please leave your comments, lavish praise, constructive criticism. If you can't post comments on the blog, send me an email at one of these addresses:


And if you liked the book, please tell your friends and neighbors. If I decide to try and get it published it would be nice to say I generated a certain buzz with it when I posted it on my blog.

I think after this I will mothball Jim's General Blog and just use this one for all my blogging purposes. So don't be a stranger, come and see me any time, and I will do the same for you.

Thanks again!


  1. I have had this exact same night:

    “Why do I have cornstarch?” he asks out loud, and then he laughs out loud at the question.
    Why do I have cornstarch?

    Although for very different reasons, all the same I have been in that scene. This and the paragraphs that surround are some of my favorite things I've read in quite some time.

  2. If you publish the book I will buy a copy (but you have to autograph it for me)

  3. Badger, considering your list of literary favorites I am deeply honored by your comment.
