>> 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:;data=05%7C01%7Cskh5%40KU.EDU%7C97b1f633733c490b42c208da678085cd%7C3c176536afe643f5b96636feabbe3c1a%7C0%7C0%7C637936098971139322%7CUnknown%7CTWFpbGZsb3d8eyJWIjoiMC4wLjAwMDAiLCJQIjoiV2luMzIiLCJBTiI6Ik1haWwiLCJXVCI6Mn0%3D%7C3000%7C%7C%7C&amp;sdata=3%2FyNhISu1C8es1UFSlEv%2FWPwfMLz3hx%2BNT%2B1%2FulGUyg%3D&amp;reserved=0
>> I'll end this note by reiterating my gratitude to Alan for the half-century of work he put into creating this invaluable resource.
