ELMER KELTON: Essays & Memories

Edited by Judy Alter and James Ward Lee

A collection of articles about Kelton by folks who knew him well, including Judy Alter (publisher), Ricky Burke (pastor); Steve Kelton (Elmer’s son); Felton Cochran (friend and bookseller). In addition, several writers and teachers discuss Elmer’s extraordinary body of work: Ruth McAdams, Joyce Roach, James Ward Lee, and Bob J. Frye. It also contains an insightful essay by Kelton, “Elmer Kelton Speaks Out…On The History of the Western Novel.” And lastly, there’s “A Basic Bibliography of Books by Elmer Kelton” provided by Cochran. PRICE = $19.95 Softcover, 160 pp]

Announcing a special new edition of what has been Elmer Kelton’s most elusive book,


This new 2010 edition, limited to 190 copies, and bound in gold lined cloth, includes the original introduction by Al Lowman, two speeches by Kelton, plus a bonus of four never-before-published illustrations by Tom Lea which were not included in the original edition…………... $95.00 [Several years ago I purchased all the publisher's inventory, and only have a few copies left!]
