Ed's Note: I am currently editing a series of books for a gentleman named Charles Speer. His first book of a trilogy he's writing is called "An American Fable". It's a very engrossing historical novel that I think many Broo readers might enjoy. Here's his story:

“The names have been changed to protect the innocent,” jokes novelist Wendy Wax about her new book The Accidental Bestseller. “It’s not a roman a clef, but I admit that parts of it are somewhat autobiographical. A few people may think they recognize themselves, but the real life experiences at its core are actually compilations of my own and other authors’ agonies, ecstasies and observations.” The novel centers on a writer who, with her editor gone and her sales in a slump, discovers how merciless the business of book publishing can be. With the... Read More

I saw Vincent Bugliosi speak at The Commonwealth Club in San Francisco this week. He was in town to talk about his new book that claims Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone in the assassination of John F. Kennedy. For the last eight years, Bugliosi has worked on the book, entitled "Reclaiming History: The Assassination of President John F. Kennedy." In his book, Bugliosi laughs at all of the conspiracy theories associated with the JFK assassination. "Pure moonshine," he calls them.

I don't know if it is truly rare to meet an incredibly deep person, or an abnormally sensitive or intelligent one.
