I picked up a signed copy of "I'm Sorry You Feel That Way" by Diana Joseph. I actually found it in a $3 bin of books at Big Lots!

Are you a war history buff? Like to read the work of authors about wars America has been involved in since its beginning? Then check out the images of ephemera I had autographed by Fred Anderson and Andrew Cayton, co-authors of the book The Dominion of War: Liberty and Empire In North America. They are in the All Photos section of AML!

I secured their signatures after I helped videotape a discussion of theirs about the book back on February 15, 2005 at The Cooper Union (Cooper Union College for the Advancement of Science and Art) in Manhattan. It was captured for replay on BookTV.

In the book, The Dominion of War, the authors examined the lives and careers of several prominent American military leaders (Washington, Powell, et al.) and their influence on American political culture as military officers and civilian leaders. They also talked about war as a historical force that helped shape the American character.

Look for The Dominion of War in your local library or an independent book store.

I've had a few books signed through the mail. But I try to get sigs in person for the most part. During the 8 yrs I lived in S. CA I had the opportunity to meet children's author Marguerite Henry ("Misty of Chincoteague", "King of the Wind") twice...in the early 1990s and she signed two of her books.. Last year I was able to meet the family of Walter Farley ("The Black Stallion") . His eldest son, Steven is a freelance writer and has continued his father's Black Stallion series. He released the newest Black Stallion book a year ago and not only was I able to get his signature in the book (first edition) but also his mother's and his younger brother's signatures. I collect autobiographies and was able to obtain Annette Funicello's and Barry Williams' signatures in their autobios through the mail over 10 years ago. Last year I was also able to obtain Lonnie Burr's signed autobio and Mark Goddard's signed autobio through the mail.

I have a bit of luck with a few writers. Anne Rice sent me a couple signed book plates , very nice art work on them, i also have gotten dean koontz. My wife is a great horror novel lover and has all the greats, but , her favorite author, stephen king refuses to sign. or thats what his computer generated letter stated. he said he had no time to sign because of hi sschedule. she was disappointed by that , but the other koontz and rice made up for it. i have an extra anne ricxe plate if any one has a good auto to trade,. You can see some of my successes at www. afterhourssuccesses.webs.com, please check it out, sign my guest book or better yet join the site. i am always adding more and looking for your successes to post on my success link. thanks and happy hunting.

I have recently posted images (with descriptions) of ephemera I got autographed by one of the leading novelists in the United States - Philip Roth.

I got to work with him in 2002 and 2008 at two of the many significant occasions in his life when he was honored for his work.

Check them out in the All Photos section of the site.

That's cool, I would have liked to meet him also, sometimes when I meet people and say my name, they are surprised at Sheldon, I tell them it's like all the famous ones, but I'm not!
