About this Item

SIGNED by Tippette; fine in fine dj. In a eulogy to his friend and colleague (Tippette died in 10/99), Mickey Herskowitz wrote "He was. the author of 15 western novels. briefly a mercenary pilot in Africa, a diamond courier, a private eye, and a contributor to most of the country's magazines. It must have been hell to be a writer who was nearly always more colorful than the subjects of his stories.His hobby, he said, was recovering from the injuries he received in the sports he took part in so he could write about them. What jumped off the page was nearly always fresh and strong and nearly organic. He made it seem easy. No writer worth his or her salt would admit, of course, that the work was ever easy. But Giles made it seem so and the answer was in the attitude. He treated words as one would a good friend"; This is a collection of Tippete’s "participatory" pieces 0.0.
