And again, Wow!
I can't say that I've always been a fan of the art of Salvador Dali, but that is only because there was a time that I was not aware of his work. My favorite paintings by Dali are Crucifixion of St. John of the Cross and Portrait of Galarina, but neither of these paintings is mentioned in this book.
Even if Mike Resnick doesn't include my favorites in his book, "World behind the door" is definitely worth reading -- and reading again -- and sharing with your friends.
Like many fans, I have never been a student of the art of Salvador Dali. Then again, I've never been a student of any artist.
I bought this book on a whim -- because I like the art of Salvador Dali. Instead of reading a story, Mike Resnick took me into a new, fantastic world that allowed me to see Salvador Dali as a man. . . and an artist.
To Mike Resnick I can only say", "Thank you!
