Edge of Never is World Famous!

Okay, so that’s a bit of an overstatement. Or perhaps it’s just preliminary. The truth is, in our first real week in operation, this site has seen visitors from India to New Zealand, France to Finland, and lot of folks from The Netherlands. I don’t know why or how, but I’m so glad you’ve all joined me, if only for 2:37 minutes (your average visit — I’m hooked on Google Analytics, if you can’t tell) at The Edge of Never. It started off a bit lonely around here, but lately I’ve been thrilled to meet so many kindred spirits. I’ve begun email correspondences with every person who’s bought a book from my site, a practice I plan to continue. Depending on your perspective, you may either view that as a promise or a threat. 

Several of you have asked about the progress on the movie version of the book. While I wish I could say that we are enjoying faceshots of pure money-love, the fact is that the current economic slide has temporarily buried our funding prospects. Yet we’re out there with the beacon and probe and shovel, digging hard for any passionate investors who are still sucking air. Meanwhile, check out the teaser we’ve posted on the MOVIE page. More to come, we promise. Sooner or later even the most massive slides will melt away…

Edge of Never Book Launch

In only a few hours I’ll be standing in front of what I hope will be a sizeable audience endeavoring to entertain them and introduce my book. I’m nervous and pumped! It feels like I’m competing again. Cool. Here’s the launch flier that my friends and family have been plastering the city with.

Check Out Adventure Photographer Turley

Utahn Mathew Turley is doing some of the best outdoor adventure photography I’ve seen. Combining an artist’s eye with a adventurer’s spirit, Turley’s shots place the human in context with nature in a way that nicely captures the feeling of imminent action. It helps that Turley is himself an accomplished climber and backcountry skier. Featured in the last segment of a film that I was involved in, last season’s Sony Pictures Classic release of Steep (http://www.sonyclassics.com/steep/), he has the dubious distinction of being the only one in the film who cusses. Then again, he had good reason, he and his friends Dylan Freed and Andrew McLean had just been caught in an avalanche in remote Iceland.

He’s recently surrendered the canyons of New York for the peaks of Utah. Welcome back, Mathew.
