A DS fan is putting together a book of letters from fans to Duncan as a
birthday gift to him. Here are the details:
If you are still interested in being a part of the Duncan
book here is all of the information I have posted. If you still have questions
or comments please feel free to e-mail
me. About the Letter...
I ask that you please limit your letters to 5 pages at
the most. Please
keep your letter on paper no larger then the standard
legal letter size. Try to make your letter as mature as possible. Remember
this is a birthday present for Duncan. I think that the boundaries of your
letter should be that one it is about Duncan/s music and the effect it
has on you. If you would like to send poetry. I would ask that it is Duncan
related for obvious reasons. If you would like to send a photograph of
yourself. (In taste please). I don't see why we cannot include that. I
would ask that you send me the actual photo, and I will see what the paper
store people can
do. So send that with your letter. When you are done
with your letter e-mail me and I will send you an address to send it to
Please have everything in the mail by October 15th. I
do need time to sort the book and have the paper store staff look at it
so that the book is done with great quality. Okay that is simple enough.
Now here are some more details for those who want to know them.
If you want to help me by all means you are welcome.
For those of you who want to do the cover and other art work I would have
to say e-mail me. And we will get that all taken care of as soon as possible,
so that you can get working on it. If you would like to help with payment
of the book, you can. But it is not a
mandatory thing. I will not know how much the book will
cost until I have everything for it all together, and I sit down with the
paper store people. If you live close and would like to help in a physical
manner (ex. in putting book together etc.) I'd love to hear from you. I
Albuquerque New Mexico. If there are people interested
in a copy I'm not sure what I think about that yet. Um one one hand it
is a very personal present for Mr. Sheik, and on the other we are a community
of fans. I'll have to think about that before I give an answer. Feel free
to tell me what you guys think.
And last but very important... Please spread the word
about this to other Duncan fans. Let's make this as open to as many fans
as we can. Thank you so much. I hope to hear from you soon.
