'The X Factor' by Fred Chandler Signed by FRED CHANDLER
This first edition of Fred Chandler's chapbook X Factor, is a collection of 18 poems from the oeuvre of this poet's extensive body of work. "I'm well acquainted with fear and death. I'm the captain on this deck," writes Chandler in the poem X Factor. In these poems, the poet explores the unknown and the familiar alike - at once lyrical and poignant, humorous and searching for meaning in a world that knows "the worth of its own loss."

| 'Wind In Her Hair' Poster|
'Wind In Her Hair' Poster Signed by FRED CHANDLER & BRUCE BOTNICK
(38" x 27") The poem, 'Wind In Her Hair' originally came from a 1971 dream that Jim Morrison had right before he left for Paris according to Danny Sugerman. When Fred Chandler was working in The Doors office with Danny in 2003 adapting the screenplay of Wonderland Avenue, Danny told Fred of Jims dream about "a girl with wind in her hair riding a horse in a nightmare". Chandler, a published poet was inspired by this Jim Morrison story and wrote a beautiful poem.
Bruce Botnick (The Doors Engineer), friend and poetry mentor of Freds, edited the poem into song lyrics, as he did for Morrison's poetry so many years ago when he was producing the LA Woman album for The Doors.
Catherine Martin (Academy Award winner for Art Direction of Moulin Rouge and Art Director for Baz Luhrmann's recent movie Australia), had her creative team do a unique graphic, true-to-form of William Blake as in his The Sick Rose. Add an incredible print job, and this beautiful poster was the end result!
