I have a new ebook out of possible interest to Mudcatters. It's a collection of journalism from The Wall Street Journal, Washington Post and many other places that includes essays and reviews about old time and bluegrass festivals, the demise of country music, the Carter Family, Ralph Stanley, Elvis, Rodney Crowell, Stevie Wonder, Van Morrison and more. There are lots of non-musical pieces as well; topics include anti-alcohol hysteria, military deployment and remembering a family slave.

Here's the Amazon UK link:

and the U.S. link:

These pages offer excerpts and the table of contents.

Dear me, no. When a 'catter in the US wants to buy a book from Amazon, the thing to do is to go to the site where the Mudcat gets a percentage:

and search for the book from there. I suppose one should search for 'Dave Shiflett' .

Best of luck with your book, Dave.
