[Update: No more books available. Thank you!]
A Terrible Mistake: The Murder of Frank Olson and the CIA's Secret Cold Warby H.P. Albarelli, Jr.
[Update: For the international lurkers that I'm seeing - sure, I'll ship it to you, too.]
Hank has a new book coming out this fall, and I am pleased to find myself in possession of 12 pristine, hardcover copies of his last publication, all nicely autographed by Mr. Albarelli. What to do?
Why, drive traffic! Nobody comments on this blog. I have no idea what you lurkers out there are thinking. So I am resorting to bribery: The first twelve commentors on this post will receive a free copy of A Terrible Mistake: The Murder of Frank Olson and the CIA's Secret Cold War, by H.P. Albarelli, Jr. (Stragglers may click through the link to purchase the book.)
This is kind of a DIY thing - I don't have any secure way of acquiring shipping addresses with any privacy. So I respectfully request that commentors send me a parallel email message (mike at clubhousewreckards dot com) with shipping information. Include the text of your comment to identify it with your comment, here, at this post.
Or not. The comment is merely a courtesy - simply sending your shipping address will do the trick, I'll let you know if you have one coming, or if I've run out. But, c'mon, throw me a bone! Leave a comment. :)
In the book, the author begins an exploration into the strange case of scientist Frank Olson, secretly and unwittingly dosed with LSD. In the course of unraveling the circumstances of his controversial and disturbing end, Albarelli uncovers an array of only-in-America intrigue and bizarre governmental buccaneering.
For a great review and discussion of this fascinating book, visit the FDL Book Salon on A Terrible Mistake, ably hosted by Jeff Kaye.
Oh, about that new publication. Here's a preview of the cover:
So, again, the "rules" are:
Leave a comment here - optional, but c'mon ;)
Send an email to mike at clubhousewreckards dot com with your shipping address.
I will send you a book if there are any left of the 12 copies I have available.
If I run out, click a link and buy a copy.
Hank and I thank you!
