Sounds most interesting. I acquired your 'Lost Films' and William Wellman book a while ago, so will have to add that to the Santa list as well as your study of Henry King. Good luck with the new one!

I also have his Lost Films book, which is one of my favourite ones, and the new one seems like it is going to be every bit as interesting.
Living in the Alamo City, going to a meet and sign book appearance sadly is too far for me a trip.

A due date for the release of the book will be very much appreciated, I am sure members of Nitrateville will be interested in obtaining a copy.

"Asheville Movies Volume I: The Silent Era" was published on May 1. Only stores in Asheville stock it at the moment and I doubt that it will be carried elsewhere except in stores that specialize in cinema.

I also doubt that it will be sold on Amazon. Their fees would dig too deep into an already-teeny profit margin.

You can get the book either in a softbound edition or as an e-book from the website:

Thanks for your interest.
