My night image of stars over a Berber tent in the dunes of Erg Chebbi in Morocco was chosen as the cover for acclaimed writer Edward Hamlin’s collection of short stories called¬†Night in Erg Chebbi and Other Stories,¬†from the prestigious University of Iowa press. I am very proud to be associated in a small way with this¬†beautifully written and award winning¬†book.

The author, Edward Hamlin, found the image online and approached me about licensing it. Here is what Edward has to say about it. . . .

“I am very proud of that cover – it is¬†perfect. Now that I have a physical copy in my hands I’ve had occasion to hear so many compliments on the image…and I’m not just saying that because you happened to take it. It’s splendid!” – Edward Hamlin

We just got our copy and my wife, Karen, is reading it first. She says “it has been a long time since I read anything this hauntingly beautiful.”

It is available at¬†Powell’s¬†and¬†Amazon¬†or at your local bookstore (if you are lucky¬†enough to still have such a thing).
