Souvenir postcard depicting a couple embracing and inset views of Waterworks Park and Belle Isle. Images are superimposed on sections of logs. Printed on front: “Greetings from Detroit. Waterworks Park. Central Ave., Belle Isle Park.” Printed on back: “Wm. Straube, Detroit, Mich. Made in Austria.” Handwritten on back: “Dearie, We had our picture taken while in Detroit yesterday thought you would like to see it so look on the other side. What do you think of it? Wish you had been with us, had a dandy time. [undecipherable].”

More power to you if you can pass this by and not pick it up. That color! That type treatment! We’re perfectly fine telling you to go on, judge this particular book by its cover. There’s lots of levity and graciousness in these pages.
If you’re a Constant Reader, you probably already know most of this, but it’s always fun to hear Sai King’s opinions on the film and connections. Plus, he mentioned that him and Peter Straub have had serious, recent talking about the third Talisman novel! Woo! Talisman and Black House are two of my favorite King novels of all time.
