RE: One you might have missed...
Rob, back in August 1999 it was sent to me (free) by the author, Dr. William Russo, as a pre-publication copy of his book. In an accompanying letter he said it would be for sale on Amazon and Barnes and Noble in two weeks. Whether that happened or not I do not know. I also admit to never having read the book; it's just been on the floor of the den closet all these years. I am sure he was simply hoping for a plug on my website.

In his letter he also wrote, "I recall many years ago hearing from Betty Ownsbey who was just beginning her biography of Lewis Paine...she had heard from Dr. Richard Mudd that I had been at work on a novelization of the conspiracy story. So I have finally caught up to her!!! It has been a long-time in coming."

He concluded his letter by writing, "The Lincoln assassination transcends a single event; it is a moment that defines us and gives us all a sense of community."

That's the last time I ever heard from him - almost 13 years ago.
