Got this last week, but had to share:
"I could not imagine where you were going with the Van Gogh idea, but now that I've read this issue, I think it's your best. Placing Vincent and Toulouse-Lautrec in the context of the Wild West shows brings together elements of the 19th century in a beautiful way. I hope you do more of that."
—Mary Doria Russell
"I hope Theo destroys those pictures in the batch that we considered not good. Most of the batch from Arles, especially."
—Vincent, as quoted by Bob Kunzinger in his book "Vincent" in 1987, and gifted to me from Larry Floyd
