"To Stephanie

Who got this started in Denver.

Keep your chin up.

Best, John Dunning 1-30-92."

Stephanie was the organizer of a lecture in Denver on "Publishing Wars" and Dunning was the featured speaker. The salon was scheduled months in advance but not for a book signing. Serendipity granted that it fall within a few days of publication of Booked To Die. Dunning's inscription references this fortunate coincidence. Denver, of course, is John Dunning's hometown and the setting for Booked To Die. Protected in a Brodart Mylar cover.
