I am very excited by this, and just have to spread the word. History Network News is a news site with a historic slant, and they get 600,000 visitors a month. A huge following. And this week they have featured a piece by me on capital punishment. I don't know will it result in a single extra sale of my book, but I am still delighted at this exposure.

Very nice, congrats.

Congratulations, Tony.

The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.--Yeats

Guess they forgot to tell Bill Buckley.

Congratulations, Tony!

Looking through Amazon, the Richard Harris bio looks interesting too. Did you get to speak with him?

Not for the book (he was dead) but in his lifetime, yes. Lovely guy, and a great character. I actually performed magic for him, when he gathered his whole extended family in an Irish castle for Christmas. At that time he was off the drink, so we had a pint of Guinness together after the show (being off the drink in Ireland often excludes Guinness for some strange reason).

The Harris book was written with a co-author. One of us was more diligent in fact-checking, doing original research, and writing in good solid plain English. I won't say which one, but the end product has ups and downs! The early section, on his childhood, is more comprehensive than any other biography out there. The section on his film work less so.

Ha, I think I can read between the lines!

I am hesitant to say it, but somewhere in my ancestral home is a scratchy 45 rpm single record of MacArthur Park.

But the one thing I wished I had seen of his was The Ginger Man, because I could imagine no other actor playing Dangerfield.

Anyway, best of luck with the new book.
