Wallace Stegner

Blackstone has acquired Wallace Stegner's major works:

Angle of Repose
Crossing to Safety (abridged only)
Beyond the Hundredth Meridian
The Spectator Bird
The Big Rock Candy Mountain
A Shooting Star
All the Little Live Things
Remember Laughter

The only hitch, as you can see, is that Crossing to Safety was only available to us in abridged format. The unabridged recording will be done by somebody else. But it's still an exciting acquisition. Pity that a part of my job is having to read all these great books in order to assign them... Tough job, but somebody's got to do it! I'm looking forward to getting these produced, though the releases will have to be stretched out over time. I'll post when I hear what the schedule will be.
