Hi Guys,
Just receive Schiffer's new catalog with my book in it. I made the dead line. It will be out
in Oct. and the list price is $70, a $25 increase. If Barnes & Noble offers $43 something
for pre-order. Go for it.

Vic . . .

I checked out the Barnes and Nobel website and though I would post the cover of your new book and a direct link. If anyone is interested here is the Barnes and Nobel Link:

I know this will be an even greater book than the original with all the new content you've added. It's a 'must' purchase for the PT library at full price so the pre-release price is a gift (and it ain't even Christmas yet!).

I got mine. That's guys for the heads up and the link.

Thank you all for your high praise for my book. Now I am worry whether my book can live
up to such expectations. Today's publishers do everything with computer. The digital
image is always a mystery to me. All the images I emailed them turned out to be not up to
their standard. Without the help of Dick W. and my daughter, Vicky, this book would
never be published. Anyway I hope Schiffer will do a good job in printing pictures, especially the color ones.
You should know vol. I is out of print now at $45. Ebay is the only place you can still get it at the old price as long as the supply last. Schiffer charges $60 now. Inflation is finally
catching up with us.

Ordered mine this afternoon. Love the cover depicting PT-124, whch by the way is Clark Faulkner and Leighton Huck Wood at the helm. I was friends with Huck Wood and he signed my painting of this very book cover. He donated his Uniform, Hat, and the Silver Star and certificate for this very action, and other actions during his time with PT BOATS. I think Faulkner got the Navy Cross as well..........
