“There’s about three women up here in Alaska, it seems. And he just got one of them.”

Signal Fires

“It was comforting, somehow, sitting beside the small boy who was able to navigate their precise location in the vastness. The stars, rather than appearing distant and implacable, seemed to be signal fires in the dark, mysterious fellow travelers lighting a path; one hundred thousand luminous presences beckoning from worlds away. See us. We are here. We have always been here. We will always be here.”

For many different reasons these books have been special to me over the years.
