>>> This is a brief note to report that the second volume of Alan Gribben's MARK TWAIN'S LITERARY RESOURCES is now available. Kevin Mac Donnell will soon be posting a full review of the book here, but I want to alert everyone to the amazing discount that Amazon is presently offering. The book lists for $95. That is a relative bargain these days for any densely packed 1,100-page scholarly book, but right now you can get the book for only $45! As there is no telling how long that incredible price will last, anyone who wants the book and hesitates to order it is foolish. Here's a link to its Amazon page:
>>> I've been browsing my copy of the book for several days and can attest that its reference value is beyond amazing. With more than 1 millions words of detailed information and analysis about nearly 6,000 works that Mark Twain owned or read, there's enough information in the book to jump-start a dozen dissertations and books and untold numbers of research articles. Moreover, it is endlessly fascinating simply to read.
>>> Those not already familiar with Gribben's work should read Kevin's Forum review of the first volume, which lays out what a treat owners of the second volume are in for:
>>> I'll end this note by reiterating my gratitude to Alan for the half-century of work he put into creating this invaluable resource.
