I love all zones off peak! Can't get hold of one, though!

China Plate,

I'm dreaming of the book that you'll make one day.

Where are you gonna get Last Resort from, if I may ask? I've been eyeing that one for a while, but it seems out of print and a tad expensive...

Talking about six degrees. ;-) I met Otto Snoek at a b-day party last summer. Never even heard the name before then. I'm surprised to see his book on your wishlist. :-)

The Last Resort was reprinted a few months ago. You can find it through retail outlets like Amazon or other places.
