Throwing Snowballs at Xanadu

Smashwords Edition



This ebook is licensed for your personal enjoyment; it may not be re-sold or given away to friends, family or acquaintances. And especially not to those people standing on the side of the street, lane, roadway, expressway, interstate or thoroughfare, or sometimes in the highway’s median, with those flimsy, greasy, poorly written cardboard signs with crayon lettering saying “Will recite Coleridge’s “Kubla Khan” for food…or money…or companionship.” If you want to give them money (or food) please feel free to do so…I mean, they took all that trouble to learn the poem, and it is rather long, so shouldn’t they get something for their effort? I wouldn’t recommend the companionship part, as there is no telling where they’ve been, or whom they’ve been with! If you feel compelled, or in dire need thereof, to share this book with others, please purchase an additional copy for each and every recipient. In fact, buy ten copies for each of them…that way, if they lose one, they’ll still have nine more as backup! You just can’t be too careful! Just giving free advice, you see…not like I’m in this for the money or anything. If you are reading this book and did not purchase it, or it was not purchased for your use only, then please return it to Smashwords.com and purchase your own copy…or twenty…whatever. Thank you for respecting the hard work of Bartholomew Thockmorton.

And wash behind your ears, dad-nabbit!



This work is dedicated to Mama, who gave me my life-long love for Jack Kirby.

I miss you.
