Fine books for the pipeman
Expectations for 2019 and Beyond 
Dear Pipeman,

February 3

Today is a momentous day because my two latest books left the Port of Qingdao, China, sailing LTL for the Port of Tacoma, WA (a 16-day sail). Those books are The Peterson Pipe by Mark Irwin and Gary Malmberg with an introduction by Rick Newcombe, and Dunhill's 1928 fifth edition About Smoke, a special edition 90th anniversary facsimile reprint, with an introduction by Richard Esserman. The books will be available on this site for early, pre-launch sales by mid-March. The official launch, however, will be at the Chicagoland Pipe Show, May 3, 4, 5, Pheasant Run Resort, St. Charles, IL. Later in the year, after a three-year hiatus, I'm very happy to return to the West Coast Pipe Show in Las Vegas (Palace Station Hotel) November 9, 10 for the books' official West Coast debut. Regardless the pipe event, I'm hoping all pipe collectors can make it out to show your support of the authors' efforts and to have a great time. The printed word in the hobby is alive and well!

As to publications for 2020 and beyond, it's really too early to tell, but there are two exciting possibilities. Stay tuned. 

Best wishes,
