Yesterday I mentioned that William T. Vollmann is coming out with the fifth volume of his series "Seven Dreams: A Book Of North American Landscapes". I already ordered this volume because Vollmann is one of my favorite modern American writers. Last night I got out the other volumes in "Seven Dreams" series to look at. Here is the list of the volumes in "Seven Dreams" already published-

As Disassembled From Diverse Gauges Volume 6 of "Seven Dreams: A Book Of North American Landscapes" published 1994
Last year Vollmann published a volume titled, "Last Stories and Other Stories" that I got out of the lower level this morning to keep me company this afternoon.
Well I suppose I will close to face the cold winds of Reality.
