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 Storiesfrom 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).
