|A PERSONAL NOTE FROM JEFF|
If you note the box to the right, you will see that my family is offering for sale a copy of the first edition/first printing of "The Killer Angels". For serious book collectors, this is widely recognized as a major rarity. If you have any questions about this, please email me, and I will supply any details you'd like to have. My family has a very small number of these, which the publisher, David McKay Co. gave to my father in 1974, when the book was first published. (Thus, they're in mint condition). Over the years, I've received a number of inquiries from collectors, or just serious fans of the book, who have expressed an interest in owning one.
I'm deeply into the writing of my new manuscript now, the 3rd of what will become a 4-book series on the Civil War in the "west". This volume, covering the campaign around Chattanooga, will be released next May. I'm having a lot of fun with this. Great stuff, and terrific characters, including Grant, Sherman, George Thomas, Braxton Bragg and Patrick Cleburne.
As always, I offer my apologies for not responding to every email I receive, but I assure you, I do READ everyone of them, and answer them as time allows. Please note that some of your questions might be answered on the FAQ Page ("Frequently Asked Questions").
I wish you all Happy Holidays!
