Two years agone, roughly speaking, I had a dream.

I was at a book festivalsomewhere spectacular, like Paris or The American Festivalin this dream, and that i was sitting behind a protracted table, language my books. I recognized the covers of my previous books, that were stacked on the table ahead of Pine Tree Statehowever there was a book propped up whose cowl i could not seeit was my next book, the one I hadn't written howeverit had been thick and black, and it looked terribly serious. Eight hundred pages, at leastit had to be smart. A pound and a half genius. Maybe two.

It was quite lucid dream, the kind of dream wherever you're aware you're dreaming, and also the Actual Pine Tree State looking Dream Pine Tree State questionedurgently, "What is that the title? what's the title?"

The title of my next book.

It was an honest one.

A really smart one.

Actual Pine Tree State forced myself to awake, fumbled within the dark for a pen and piece of paper, and in hastescribbled it down.

It was nice.

It was genius.

It had to be.
