2 Alter, Judy and James Ward Lee -Editors Elmer Kelton: Essays and Memories
Fort Worth Texas Christian Univ Pr 2011 0875654266 / 9780875654263 First Edition/First Printing Trade Paperback Fine Book 
A square solid tight clean carefully read copy. Trade PBO. When Elmer Kelton died in the fall of 2009, the literary world lost a consummate writer, a man the New York Times called a "novelist who brought the sensibility of the old-style western to bear on a modern Texas landscape of oil fields and financially troubled ranches." Kelton was also a modest, kind man, always willing to advise a struggling writer or write a blurb for a first time published author, or assign publishing rights to his six masterpieces to a small university press. TCU Press owes a great debt of gratitude to Kelton, and this volume, Elmer Kelton: Memories and Essays , attempts to explore just what it is that made Kelton its leading author. Editors Judy Alter and James Ward Lee gathered together a group who had either published or taught or sold his books, or were simply friends. In several meetings, they divided up the main themes of Kelton's writing: Alter provides the overview of Kelton's career; Felton Cochran, longtime owner of Cactus Books in San Angelo, describes how the friendship between bookstore owner and author grew over the years; Ricky Burk, pastor of the church from which Kelton was buried, talks about the man's influence in his community; Kelton's son, Steve, explains how Kelton's career as journalist permeated his novels; Ruth McAdams, who has taught Kelton for years, explores how he deals with the themes of endurance and change; Joyce Roach delicately covers how race and ethnicity figure in Kelton's plots and the development of his unforgettable characters; Lee gives readers his inimitable take on the Hewey Calloway Trilogy-- The Good Old Boys , The Smiling Country, and Six Bits a Day ; and Bob J. Frye takes a wry look at Kelton's use of humor throughout his career. The book also contains Kelton's own view of the history of the Western novel, a response to revisionist criticism. And finally Cochran provides us a list of most, not all, of Elmer Kelton's extraordinary body of work. THIS COPY IS IN MY POSSESSION AND WILL NORMALLY SHIP NEXT DAY.

20 Bush, George W. and Laura Decision Points/ Spoken from the Heart
New York Crown Pub/ Scribner 2010 0307590615 / 9780307590619 First Edition/First Printing Hardcover N-Fine Fine Book Signed by Author(s)
Decision Points, A square solid tight carefully read copy. This book was released on November 9, 2010. It was signed on his first stop of a three city tour, a Borders Bookstore, now closed, that was located in the Dallas, Texas neighborhood where he and the First Lady now live. The former President arrived at the store at 8:30 AM and left between 11 and noon. He sat in the store and signed each book, exchanged pleasantries and shook hands with all who purchased the book. The book store sold out of 2500 copies. When the books ran out he also signed a unknown number of specially designed Decision Points Bookplates for those customers who wanted to order a copy to arrive at a later date. This is one of those copies and the signed bookplate is tipped into the book. At the actual signing event the Secret Service would not allow cameras inside the building but I will include pictures of the crowd that formed outside the store that I took. Spoken from the Heart, ISBN 9781439155202, has been signed by the First Lady on the title page. Laura's book is a very carefully read clean copy. The jacket on her book has some very light rubbing/edgewear. Both books are the First printings of the First Editions.
