"You know what? The bastard blows me out of the water. This guy writes Maine like Ardai writes New York. If you're not reading him, you don't know what you're missing." --Chris F. Holm, author of The Big Reap, The Wrong Goodbye and Dead Harvest.

"Bagley's got the poet's eye, but that doesn't mean everything is prettier in his work. It means the ugly stuff is more vivid. More intense. Like a sudden switch from analog to HD. And that's a trait to very much admire in his work." --Anthony Neil Smith, author of Hogdoggin', Yellow Medicine, The Drummer and Psychosomatic.

Thanks, Patrick. I'm just proud I could bring Lord Stanley's Cup home to reside in Maine this year.

Wait, I DON'T get the Stanley Cup for this? WTF, Sandra!

Well, I could get you a hockey puck plaque - that is an option!
