I had told my friends that when I got a copy of Blind Shadows I was
going to shelve it between books by Karl Edward Wagner and Manly Wade
Wellman, not because I have any illusions that my work belongs beside
theirs, but because they were the two biggest influences on me when I
was writing my part of the novel. My Co-author, James A. Moore agreed
that we should dedicate Blind Shadows to Wagner because he had been a
big influence on Jim as well.
