I snaggle-toothed them from a now defunct website. I realize that it is certainly copy written material but I look at it more as a source of inspiration. If you really dig it I'm sure you will go and purchase the book. Also he is now dead so any profits are not going to him anymore so, I feel better about it. Well, that's my rationale anyways, enjoy.
