Update #25 — August 13, 2018 – My new book is published!!
Posted by Bill Schelly on August 8, 2018
Earlier this year, Pulp Hero Press published a collection of my interviews called BILL SCHELLY TALKS WITH THE FOUNDERS OF COMIC FANDOM. It collects some of my chats from ALTER EGO magazine and other sources under one cover, including a never-before-published interview with African American writer-artist Richard “Grass” Green.
Now comes the SECOND VOLUME in the series, which (in my view) is as good as or better than volume one, which was so well-received. It begins with a brand new interview with Roy Thomas about his youth and days in fandom before he went pro, including details of his first meeting with Stan Lee in July 1965. Other interviews in this book are with such notables as Don and Maggie Thompson, Richard Kyle, Bill Thailing and Bud Plant. Same price as vol. 1: $17.95 for print, $4.99 for kindle.
Sometime in early 2019, the third and final volume will be published. Taken together, they will be an unprecedented collection of talks with many of the most influential and interesting fans from fandom of the 1960s. I couldn’t be happier that Pulp Hero Press is making this series available, and at such affordable prices. Each volume is compiled and edited by Yours Truly!
Keep in mind that the new edition (lower price, larger text) of FOUNDERS OF COMIC FANDOM is also available!
ALSO…. As 2018 comes to a close, watch for two more books. One is THE BILL SCHELLY READER, a collection of my best prose pieces (with lots of art and photos), also from PHP. And then there’s the much anticipated JAMES WARREN, EMPIRE OF MONSTERS from fabulous Fantagraphics Books.
