Tearsheet: A Really Big Book
This past weekend, I stopped by the Pulp AdventureCon, held right near me in Bordentown, NJ, for two reasons:
- To meet Matt Moring, the gent from Altus Press who originally contacted me about using my photo on the cover..
- Pick up my copy of Them That Live By Their Guns frrm him.
Them That Live By Their Guns is a massive (649 pages) collection of the crime fiction stories of Carroll John Daly. Frankly, I didn’t expect it to be so thick. But the cover looks great, and I wait to dig into it.
The Pulp AdventureCon was a rather interesting event. I didn’t get over there till the afternoon, so I think it was winding down a bit. Still, the ballroom at the Ramada Inn was packed with vintage magazines, paperbacks, videos…you name it, it was probably there. I could have dropped a fortune on paperbacks if I was so inclined, but got out unscathed
After so many emails, it was great to meet Matt in person. Younger than I expected but certainly knows his stuff. Even asked me to sign his copy!
Them That Lives By Their Guns is on sale now at Amazon.
It would make a great stocking stuffer! (though, at it’s size and weight, it may pull the stocking off the mantel.)
