“All good editors know that, commonly, an expert with a gift for writing can provide first-hand a punchy article whose authoritative weight augments mightily those from staff reporters. An excellent example is in the Sunday’s Washington Post where Howard Markel, a professor of communicable diseases at U. Michigan — and an author — explains tuberculosis, punctures the 19th century’s infatuation with ‘consumption’ as macabre and yet delicately romantic, and explains the deep fears that drug-resistant TB inspires among medical people.”

Wapshott Press-a-Go-GoOh, by the way, the Wapshott Press has recently become an Amazon Charity. Yes, Amazon makes you sign in, sorry. So, anyway, please remember us if you buy any of these wacky books I like to read, and when you're holiday shopping. A little money goes a long way at the Wapshott Press.
Oh, and the Wapshott Press is still a 501(c)(3) nonprofit! Tax deductible donations can be made here: www.paypal.com/us/fundraiser/charity/2716533 and thank you so much for your support!
