  1. A treasure trove indeed, and then there's his great sense of British wit. My favorite Malcom Blunt exchange so far: ALAN DALE: Ed Volz ... told Reeves [that] de Mohrenschildt was sleeping with Marina [Oswald].... MALCOLM BLUNT: You'd think he'd stay awake.
  2. The statement is for real and is included in Thompson's marvelous book of letters: "Proud Highway: Saga of a Desperate Southern Gentleman, 1955-1967." (Which actually received laudatory reviews in mainstream media when it appeared in 1998.) According to the editors, it was written to the novelist William Kennedy and utilized the term "fear and loathing" "for perhaps the first time." The book also contains another reference to JFK that Hunter penned a few years later, which reads in part: "He [JFK] had a capacity for backing off and watching himself perform, and later commenting on what h
  3. I have it, and when I scan it I will send you a copy of the scans.

  5. On December 20th the two biggest Dylan blogs (Expectingrain.com and Dylanology on Facebook) posted a link to Len's interview with Bobbie Marks. Last I checked Expectingrain gets 25K unique visitors daily and the Facebook Dylanology group has 43K members. These were the same two that posted our links to the various Dylan / Marks pieces on K&K.
  6. Thanks Anthony! I was just thinking of you while I was thumbing through his book on Reagan, because the research you're doing would dovetail with so much of it. Just as there are at least two Jim DiEugenios churning out all that good stuff at K&K, there must have been at least two Stanley Marks. We will have to channel the spirit of Professor Popkin to ask him. Seriously it is pretty mind blowing that he ran all those businesses and pumped this stuff out at such a high rate, about one book every two years since 1967. He also wrote a regular feature column in the Ca
  7. Yes. I have them and am working on them right now. ("Coup d’État!" and "Yes, Americans".) In addition, I am in contact with the Copyright Office and the Library of Congress, each of which may have the only copies of his plays about the assassinations; and if I can get them I will reissue them as well.
  8. Thanks for that Ron - and my vision's definitely worse than yours!
  9. This (below) is a copy of former ambassador John Cudahy's review of The Bear, which features a detailed synopsis of the book. As I mentioned in my Intro to the new MMF (which is greatly expanded from the essay that first appeared at Kennedys and King), The Bear was published by Dorrance and Company, a vanity press which nonetheless paid for the book's publication. The company was founded by Gordon Dorrance in 1920, after a book he was editing for Scribner’s failed to reach the publication stage, and he decided to publish it under his own imprint. In 1954, on the I Love Lucy Show, Mr. Dorr
  10. Glad to hear it Ron! Thanks and enjoy and let us now what you think.
  11. Jim, I'm glad that you said that about Len, because he's another person who doesn't get the attention he deserves. This (below) is the bibliography on Stan Marks that I've been able to cobble together so far. Excerpted from our new reprint of MMF. And as Jim said, typed with two fingers (but at a really fast speed, according to Bobbie Marks) on an old Underwood manual typewriter. The remarks in quotes are taken from the dustjackets of the books: Books by Stanley J. Marks Since the Markses’ works on religion contain a powerful political dimension, they have also been incl
  12. Thanks for the feedback, Chris, glad you're enjoying it!
  13. And talk about having my work cut out for me. This is the back cover of Stanley's 14th book, an attack on the Reagan administration titled: "A Year in the Lives of the Damned! Reagan, Reaganism, 1986," published in 1988. He says it's "Written in the form of a diary, each month is a chapter." There is also one sentence in the book on JFK, where he quotes from JFK's inaugural: "If a free society cannot help the many who are poor, it cannot save the few who are rich." Then Marks adds: "-- A 20th Century Radical: John F. Kennedy. The President of the U.S.!"
