Happy birthday, Alex Bobl!

Dear Alex,

The little boat you built several years ago, called Magic Dome Books, is still sailing. Over the years the sea hasn’t always been calm. We’ve seen some vicious storms, haven’t we? We’ve seen wreckages of other ships that didn’t make it. But we just kept going, cause that’s what we do: we travel until we’ve been at every sea in the world. The boat has changed, it’s no longer a small shallop. Now it’s more like a fast frigate riding the whirlwind every now and then. These days the sea is black. Thunderstorm like never before is all around us. But look at your crew, Alex. We’re calm and ready for what lies beyond the horizon. Cause we’ve got one hell of a captain with us. Happy birthday, captain! Set the course!
