Twenty-five years ago when Julie and I drove into Statesboro with the kids, we knew we had been blessed by God Who had brought us home. Strangers waved at us as we drove in, the streets were clean and there was little traffic up and down old two-lane Fair Road. I think there were only a few places to eat - mostly family style - and Georgia Southern College had perhaps 9,000 students.

With a name like that, I'm not sure if I'd like to live there. Where exactly would that be, and how did it get its name? The truth, in this case, is quite simple. At Great Lott's Creek, along the Bulloch and Candler County line, a gentleman named William Wright had bought some land. He announced on April 14, 1860, that he intended to set up a "fish trap" on the Great Ogeechee River near the junction of Great Lott's Creek.

"Mirrormask," the brain child of author Neil Gaiman and illustrator Dave McKean, does all this and more. "Mirrormask" is a unique fantasy book that does not feel like fantasy. Despite the fact that much of the story takes place in an alternate world, the perspective of the main character, Helena, gives the story a surprisingly normal feeling that even people who dislike fantasy can identify with.
