  1. The only way I know to get a large print edition of my two books from Copper Canyon Press is to download them from Bookstore or buy them as eBooks.


  2. I am very interested in a large-print edition of your poetry. I have many visually-impaired friends who are comfortable with large-print. Thank you for your poetry and your journey.


  3. Dear Stephen,
    I have never written an author fan letter before, but I have to say something! I purchased Have Dog Will Travel from Bookshop Santa Cruz Friday night and finished it Saturday morning. Now I am on the subway in San Francisco, fresh from the library, and I am immersed in Planet of the Blind. Your writing is so so so beautiful. Thank you for what you do. Isabelle
