In early 2007, I was fortunate to have received substantial international publicity by locating, identifying, organizing and archiving a long-considered lost handwritten John Steinbeck archive, collectively valued at nearly $1 million.

Joel’s reading recommendation:
I’m re-reading Frank Herbert’s original Dune series, and also Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, both sagas being big literary influences. Anything by Anne Rice and Clive Barker is always worthwhile.
