  • An absolutely delightful conversation with Mark! [I]The Peterson Pipe[/I] book is a masterpiece of research, scholarship, and thanks to Marie, a gorgeously illustrated, must-have book. I was lucky enough to get the first signed copy at the Chicago Show, and also won a copy of the Rathbone book, in the quiz following a showing of “The House of Fear.” Mark is a fascinating and genial person to shoot the sh** with, as I’ve been happy to do at a few Chicago Shows.
    The music was quite entertaining, with a powerful message.
    Best wishes for a successful auction. And, for those who don’t participate in the auction, do as I do, and make a cash donation to JDRF. My best friend’s son, like Brian’s daughter, is a Type 1 Diabetic, and it stands to reason, the more funding for research, the better the chances for a cure.

  • Great show! I really enjoyed the interview with Mark Irwin. I wish I could have gotten a copy of his book, it would have tremendous. He also wrote some wonderful stuff for Al Pascia (an Italian site). I used his articles for Al Pascia and Peterson when I used to write the KC club newsletter.
    Music was interesting.
    Diabetes is a son-of-a-bitch.

  • Excellent interview. I really enjoyed his knowledge and the journey of so many books. Although not my usual style, I rather enjoyed the music. Congratulations on the quantity of donations, sounds like a very good year. Great news on the NASPC show, I’ve already reserved a table. I hope all goes according to plan. Finally, great series of interviews on the seven esperts, I really enjoyed them.
