Peter Brand
Wyatt Earp Anthology
Thu Jun 10, 18:35

I was surprised and delighted to have a couple of my older articles included in this massive tome. No book of this size will be perfect and some may find errors here and there as no author is perfect either.
However, to completely dismiss the entire book because you found incorrect or incomplete work in a couple of chapters is not wise. The book is a huge step toward for many who are new to the field and want to see a cross section of work by many and varied authors. It is an amazing collection of work in my opinion.
As Pam says, it also preserves and includes some articles that would be very difficult for the general reader to find.
I would love to see another Anthology done collecting the works published on the supporting cast of characters in the Tombstone story too.
I know the Wyatt Anthology has sold well, so maybe it's worth considering.

      I would like to offer a different opinion of the book. I am proud to have been chosen to have two of my articles included. There is a variety of information, gleaned from years of research. It is a... more

          Thanks, Peter. You are right. In trying to get a cross-section of material on Wyatt,, we had a whole lot of decisions to make on what was included and what was omitted. My biggest regret is ... more

            That person's research on both James C and Morg is WELL worthwhile for those of us who love the T'stone saga! And, yes, it's a cryin' shame that he will not publish all that valuable research... it wo... more

            I assume these posts in defense of the Wyatt Earp Anthology are in response to something Kenny wrote that got deleted by the guy who "paid for this microphone". The sad thing is that if Kenny had publ... more

                That Asimov quote is perfect, and timely. You are correct that no work is ever finished, merely abandoned at some point. That is the nature of "making," isn't it? I once stumbled onto the quote (I ... more
