Absences - "Lost, Stolen or Shredded": Rick Gekoski's Stories of Missing Works of Art and Literature

Books about Books: A History of Oak Knoll Press, Part 3: A 2nd Publication and the Move to New Castle

Herb was the last in line of the family butchers and knew every reputable historical fact (and many disreputable) about the city of New Castle. This Victorian storefront had been a butcher's shop during its entire life before I turned it into a bookshop.
