    I put the winner in spoilers so that we can attend to the background of the contest first, and also reveal the solution before we learn who the winner is. That way we have some context.

    Before publishing Misery, I came up with this idea as a way to pay tribute to, and honor the memory of my late father. He was a great man with a solid gold heart, and much of who I am today is as a result of the lessons I learned from him, and the examples he set.

    So, the solution is that in each of the first five books I published, I included a letter spelling out my father’s name, which is SOLLY. The final letter ending with The Road was intentional because of the story about the bond between a father and his son.

    So… to my dad, Solly Suntup you shall never be forgotten. You were the best father anyone could ask for.

    Okay... And now, THE WINNER IS:

    Spoiler:

    OK, so as anyone who has searched eBay for the term Suntup has probably seen, Paul published a book of poetry called Sunset at the Temple of Olives back in 2011. I know several folks on these boards have picked it up as part of their Suntup memorabilia, and I strongly encourage everyone who has to open it up and read it! The works "Emily" and "I don't really know what this poem is going to be about, or even if it'll be any good, but I'm writing it anyway." are some of my favorites, but the whole thing is beautifully dark.

    The thing is, as recently as the beginning of this week, I could not have told you those things because I did not own the book!

    I've been eyeing it off and on when I see it in searches and for the first time, last week, I pulled the trigger.

    See:



    I ordered it on the 7th, it shipped on the 8th, and arrived to me a week earlier than scheduled on Monday the 12th. As you all know, Antony made the amazing discovery shortly thereafter!

    When only the letters "S" "O" "L" "L" were known, I made the guess of "Solly". Why? Because I am the parent of two small children and recently in our house we had something called a "Solly Wrap". But my reasoning was incorrect. Even though it was a longshot, as most people without kids would not have heard of this product, I guessed that maybe "Solly" meant that these books were his babies, that he was putting out into the world. Also, like most of you, I'm sure, I googled "words that start with soll" and it turns out that there aren't, like, any. Some foreign words, and something called a "solleret", which is an armored shoe for a knight.

    I didn't really think that was right but, hey, guessing was free! But I could't help but think that "Solly" was the right word, there was just some connection that I was missing.

    Fast forward a bit, and I decide to pick up and peruse my just received Suntup book of poetry. I open it up, and as is my custom, I start with the copyright page and all the front matter. There's a title page, copyrights, and then this:



    When I read this page, I about had a heart attack! I knew that this had to be it - simply no way that it was a coincidence. The only coincidence is that had I not ordered this book at the exact time I did, I would never have had it right in front of me, at the most perfect time possible.

    Having a father myself who I am rather fond of, and who I am fortunate enough to still have around, it was an incredibly touching realization to see this dedication to someone's father, first in this book of poetry, and then through the craft of his son's great accomplishment. It's an incredible gesture.

    I'm very fortunate that this all worked out in the way it did and I just had to share the genesis of the whole thing from my end.

    Such a heartfelt tribute Paul. I came on board with The Road and the more I learn how emotionally invested you are with the books you publish, the more I feel compelled to stay with you on this beautiful adventure and experience that is Suntup Publishing. Your dad can be proud sir.

    After two delays, the UPS finally brought me my numbered ROSEMARY'S BABY today.
    I have some lettered editions that don't even come close to the quality of this production.

    Thanks lotuz... what perfect timing! After reading your post, I thought I should provide this link for anyone who wants a copy of that poetry book as these are signed.

    Appreciate the other comments. This worked out very nicely, and it all played out here on the forum which is great.

    Kind of neat that it was all discovered and revealed right when the last letter in The Road was being shipped/received.
