I didn't realise it was everything. I thought we had occasionally agreed in the Clawhammer forum.

"Transformed". How the construction of the Trans Alaska Pipeline changed the Old Alaska forever. As far as I know, no one has authored it yet.

Oh we actually agree on more than that, Mike too, but that does not make a good book title. Sensationalism sells, so maybe----

Oddly enuff, several years ago I started assembling a collection of my experiences on the fly-in reserves into a word document.  It's been sitting idle for quite a while now.... fwiw, the working title was/is: "Do you Believe In Jesus?  / tales of a decade working on remote Manitoba reserves."   indecision

There are artists and musicians I might like to write about, but, if I got to know them, I might get to not like them. Like someone said about the Stones back in the Sixties, "I respect them as musicians, but not as people."

“Tumble” it would be a fiction novel of how a building was destroyed as cover for the insurance industry. The building was built with toxic construction material which a class action lawsuit was in affect and the workers lawsuit in said building would have bankrupt the insurance company. The act of destroying the build was blamed on terrorist from a country that had tried an assassination attemp on the president. This gave cover to invade that country removing the ruler and securing oil fields.

‘Yee-haw, play Duelling Banjos’.

Probably the easiest to solve murder mystery ever written.

I am currently writing a novel called, "God was Strangely Quiet." I bet I could get Mike Gregory to read it. :-)

If I were talented enough to write a book, I would write it about a famous historical figure who has been misrepresented by historical documents and especially, the entertainment business. The entertainment business seems to make little attempt to achieve historical accuracy. I enjoy learning more about history and when I see/hear a mistake, it catches my attention. And the more I learn, the more things get my attention.

Goodness knows, there is no lack of candidates for publications like this. Of course the opposite is also true. Favorable memories of some famous people would be changed.

I'm already well into, "Fiction & Fact from Bender's Almanac." It will never appear at a book store near you. (I do have it up in the cloud in my DropBox account though.)

"The application of delta-sigma modulators in fractional-N phase-locked loops" or "An asynchronous transceiver architecture for the serial transmission of data streams of maximum data rates". Oh, I actually wrote those two books... And no, I'm not going to translate them to English for all of you who now want to read them!

May I guess, it was no real bestseller on the lists?

It was written for a "niche" audience?

I'm not about to by a book only about fractionl -n phased locked loops. If it is not about complete loops .,it would probaby leave me hanging.

Figmos much better half is quite the author.  I enjoyed the heck out of the one I read (and then to add even more praise, my dog ingested it vigorously)

im on Amazon with 'the seventh sense, a theory of sensorimotor integration'.  I fully accept 99.9% of the world doesn't care.  I published it simply because...well I don't know why.  But a few folks loved it and I sent them free .PDFs.  I've made 4 dollars in royalties

I wrote several books and published some. Does a 3-ring binder of 205 weekly radio scripts count? Regular magazine feature articles?

Best ever was the kid tested and kid-approved cookbook.
Maybe 300 recipes that I raise them on.
There's a few things in there that I've traded with BHO people.
Even a few that I have given away here.

Not exactly a best seller but every family member has a copy. I have an inventory of every herb and spice needed to prepare everything in the book. Less that $250.00.

The Complete Book of Cat Yaks With Pressed Examples. I'm collecting background research.

Fettling - A Complete Amateurs Guide To Spending Some Quality Shed Time

A factual guide to show people that if you see something that you'd love to make or try, with a handful of tools, not too much DIY knowledge but a good 'can do' attitude - you can put your hand to most things, even if the end result has a face that only a father could love.

I found this one at Books-A-Million on closeout for 90% off retail. It makes a great coaster.
