I’ve just begun work on a second edition of Beer, Brats, and Baseball: St. Louis Germans. Following the pattern set with Hoosiers and Scrubby Dutch: St. Louis’s South Side, Reedy Press decided against just printing more copies when the last run ran out. Instead, I’ll be adding new stories to the favorites in the first edition. It should be out this summer or early this fall.
Also set for a fall release: a coffee table book with the working title Unique Homes of St. Louis. Since last spring, I’ve been traveling the highways and byways hereabouts with photographer Mark Abeln looking for the strangest, oddest, most unusual houses around. My musings on those houses will fill the white spaces that don’t contain a picture. It should be a fun book.
I can’t wait for you to read both books.
