    Crowgey Republication Imminent

    I believe Mike Veach tipped us some time ago that this was in the works.

    The University of Kentucky Press has decided to republish Henry Crowgey's Kentucky Bourbon: The Early Years of Whiskeymaking.

    Originally published in 1971, this is one of the few serious scholarly works ever done on the subject, and is a very thorough and credible account of the industry's development in the late 18th and early 19th centuries. The release is scheduled for February, 2008. Amazon is accepting pre-release orders. (That's the link.)

    I won't lie. If you buy it using this link, you will put a few pennies in my pocket, but the cost to you is the same.

    Any idea on the release date? Looks like just the sort of book I would like to read. Thanks for the tip I will keep an eye out for it.

    Amazon says Feb. 1. I just ordered it, along with Sam Cecil's book, finally (I started out at your link, Chuck -- but, after logging in, browsing, checking previous orders, etc., I don't know if I did you any good at all -- hope so!).

    I'm not sure. It might be all of 70 cents. Anybody can play. It's called the Amazon Associates Program.

    Hmmm, when I read this thread title I thought Chuck had uncharacteristically overimbibed, forgot how to spell his own name and decided to become a political Conservative.....

    I think I got almost two dollars last quarter.

    I do much better with google AdSense. Not enough to quit the day job, but enough to pay for the web hosting.

    I think if I actually updated my book reviews put some more effort into it I could get more amazon money. It was a sad day when they figured out how to deduct my own purchases.
