Lawrence Block's Stamp Collecting-Related Mysteries
John Keller is a New York City hitman who also collects stamps, worldwide 1840-1940. "Keller reads Linn's, buys at auctions and often visits stamp dealers while he's out of NYC stalking his prey," says VSC member Pete McClure. Lawrence Block is a card-carrying stamp collector who writes mysteries.
|Facts and Fantasy about Philately
by John Hotchner
From 1976 to 1992, John Hotchner wrote a column for the Virginia Philatelic Forum under the nom de plume of Anon Y. Mouse. These essays, on stamp clubs, buying and selling, and postal polices, are collected in this book. They are not only fun to read, but they provide much good philatelic information, a look at the state of philately during some of its boom years, and a glimpse of Hotchner himself: Past president of the American Philatelic Society, Citizen Stamp Advisory Committee member, U.S. columnist for Linn's Stamp News, editor of The Philatelic Exhibitor, and award-winning exhibitor. The VSC is proud to offer this book at $9.95 plus $2 S&H. You can use a credit card with PayPal without having an account yourself.
