Mr. Fenn, What Will be Your Last Book?

Flyleaf of Forrest Fenn's 7th bookMr. Fenn,
On the flyleaf of your book about Mr. Sloane are the words “After he wrote his first book, he said it would be his last, and he is still saying that after his seventh.” And now you are up to ten books. Do you ever plan to really write a “last one?” ~ Just wondering, Jennifer.


Well Jennifer, how can I write the next book until I’ve already written the last one? f

    Oh, how we all must love his answers! 🙂

    And I wonder if Forrest always understands everything he says? What do you think?

    How can one ‘knot’ appreciate a straightforward response, that makes you zigzag, double take and ended up a bit twisted, and still make it work.

    • Jenny Kile says:

      Exactly Seeker! A perfect workout for the brain, so we have a better chance to understand that poem’s knot….which is also supposed to be straightforward…

    Today as I went up the stair,
    I met a man who wasn’t there.
    He wasn’t there again today,
    Oh how I wish he’d go away.

    Seems logical to me. f

    • locolobo says:

      Yes f, I too wish that man would go away.
      When, on the stair, that I meet that man, who is tired and weak….his mortality slaps me in the face.
      Oh how I wish he would go away.

      wishing you nothing but the best, old son.

    It was not for naught that Forrest tied knots in his poem.
    Unraveling those knots makes our brains twist and roam.
    Perhaps his next book foreshadows answers to the poem.
    A swan song will be penned where his spirit seeks to roam.

    May you enjoy time to pen many more books for us to enjoy Mr. Fenn!

    Yesterday, upon the stair,
    I met a man who wasn’t there.
    He wasn’t there again today,
    I wish, I wish he’d go away…

    When I came home last night at three,
    The man was waiting there for me
    But when I looked around the hall,
    I couldn’t see him there at all!
    Go away, go away, don’t you come back any more!
    Go away, go away, and please don’t slam the door…

    Last night I saw upon the stair,
    A little man who wasn’t there,
    He wasn’t there again today
    Oh, how I wish he’d go away…

    “Antigonish” (1899)

    Wish I was there
    Time and testing has me at a halt
    But doesn’t mean I don’t care
    I know where the chest is by default
    But by spring with the wind in my hair
    I will be laughing all the way to your spot

    Re: The Poem

    9 Clues…..9 Steps

    How can you take the next step(s) until you have already taken the last one??

  9. Pacman says:

    The last will be first and the first will be last. x=n-m=15:11. Next!
    If I can last I will be first but first I must make my last trip to be next.

    What work can one never finish?

  11. astree says:

    The post 3, begins with “2-day”, posted at 2:22, and the first 3 lines are 22 letters. Looks like more, too.

    Just got a flash on the internet –

    Thought of the Moment

    It takes two to speak the truth: one to speak, and another to hear. -Henry David Thoreau, naturalist and author (1817-1862)


    Mark – seems like a lot of possible answers to the riddle … what about “tomorrow’s work”?


    • Mark J says:

      It has to do with the subject of this post.

      • JC1117 says:

        Hello, Mark. Forrest is a writer and an explorer…to name just two things that he loves to do. He will never “finish” either in his lifetime on this Earth…because he will “turn the page” while still doing both, I’m sure. There are always more stories to tell and places/things to explore. And if you believe in the afterlife…which I do…all the more reason why Forrest will continue to do the things he loves without ever finishing. Is that what you’re thinking?

  13. 42 says:

    Great answer JC1117 – I hope to hike mountains and fish crystal clear streams when I “turn the page” to the afterlife…and read Forrest’s book about what flying to heaven is like. He may have to travel slower than Mach speeds to observe and write about that adventure!
