NEW GREEN HORNET BOOK 2010

Dear Friends,

with Scott & Lee's permission (thanks fellas! ) and in conjunction with our sister Hornet Forum over at THE CAVE Board, we will be alternating a monthly drawing from Sept to Dec to give away FREE new Hornet books (signed by the authors) to four lucky fans/members! Cool

This "official" book (authorized by GH Inc) is titled The Green Hornet and will be available in Jan of 2010, click HERE for info.




The authors are Martin Grams (mmargrajr on the boards, click HERE for his site) and Terry Salomonson who is an OTR (Old Time Radio) expert, see his site HERE. A big THANK YOU goes out to them for agreeing to this neat giveaway!

As described on the site above, the $30 softbound book is 6" x 9" in size, 800+ pages thick with over 100 B&W vintage photos. It will document the history of the radio shows, movie serials, TV series, and comic books with featured plots for every radio program, bios on the cast, behind-the-scenes stories, etc.

The book is currently up on amazon, see THIS LINK. You can also order directly from Martin's Hornet Book Page which offers FREE SHIPPING on all pre-publication orders worldwide until 12:01am on 1/31/10.

In my dealings with Martin Grams I have found him to be a very nice, trustworthy young man. He has kindly showed me advance peeks of some of the Hornet chapters and I must say that I was impressed with the contents of those sample chapters. He has amassed a plethora of information based on intensive research and many vintage documents, letters, etc. His book details are not based on assumptions, but on FACTS. Smiley

To give you an idea of the level of detail & book format, check out the page samples/info from his previous award-winning tome HERE and HERE. By the way, every penny Martin made from his TWILIGHT ZONE book went to charity, and his lovely wife Michelle has raised a lot of money for various charities as well, bless their generous hearts!

Anywho, enough with the promotional plugs, let's get to the giveaway drawing details, haha!

The drawings will alternate between both Hornet Forums in our boards for the next 4 months:

The Cave Board: September 2nd & November 2nd

1966 Batman Board: October 2nd & December 2nd

All current members in good standing (USA & International) are eligible, just make ONE POST in this thread to enter, and if you are already a member you can make a post in BOTH communities to double/quadruple your chances of winning!

Myself, TonyMoe, Karl/V194, Scott Sebring, Lee Kirkham & David Sutton will be exempt from the giveaway.

The drawings will take place by 3pm Eastern on the above dates, and in a very "high-tech" manner the winning names will be picked at random by yours truly from a fedora! Grin

The winners will be posted here and contacted via PM/emails. Martin will personally ship the books out to the lucky fans after the books are published/available during the week of January 31, 2010.

OK gang, let's show folks how many HORNET fans there are - come one, come ALL, good luck & have FUN!
