The Bill Schelly Reader

By Bill Schelly

THE BILL SCHELLY READER could be called “the companion to THE GOLDEN AGE OF COMIC FANDOM,” since it includes my best prose pieces about early fandom.  There are lots of photos and quite a bit of artwork to go along with the pieces.  All “Schelly completists” will want this book!  THE BILL SCHELLY READER is a 250-page trade paperback and costs $17.95.  The Kindle book is $7.99.
