Thank you for participating in this important effort to shame and humiliate the incompetent publisher of books Rustle Shine. So far as I can tell, my book "You Must Buy Your Wife At Least As Much Jewelry As You Buy Your Horse and Other Poems and Observations, Humorous and Otherwise, From a Life on The Range" isn't available in any God damn bookstores. And I aim to do somethin' about it. Sort of.

The deal is that you should print up this here cover for my book and bring it with you to your local B. Dalton or other purveyor of bookstuffs. Find a book to put this cover on and then put it in the section of the store where my book ought to be. Then take a picture and post it here on the forum on this page.

That way, I can say to Mr. Shine "here's what the world would look like if you were any damn good at your job" and really stuff it down his silver-tongued God damned city slickin' THROAT!

As a side note, if you have any information on the disappearance of Rustle's wife, please also post that here and we'll see if we can't get her safely home.

Okay, consider me much obliged.

Till next time,

I remain,

The Poet Laureate of the West,

Dalton Wilcox
