Scoundrels and Scallywags now back in print

Posted by on Jul 24, 2017 in Books, Brian's Blog | 0 comments

I’m very pleased to announce that the most successful of my 12 books of social history, Scoundrels and Scallywags: Characters from Alberta’s Past, is now back in print. It had been available only as an ebook after it went out of print three years ago.

Like many readers, I have a sentimental attachment to print. So I decided it would be a shame to leave Scoundrels just as an ebook. This new paperback version can be purchased from the Amazon sites in Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom, and other countries.

Reprinting it has allowed me to finally correct a typo on the back cover that had persisted through several printings after the book was first published in 2002. The blurb had mistakenly said that Canadian soldiers in the First World War responded to an American sign, “Remember Pearl Harbor,” with “To Hell with Pearl Harbour, Remember Pearl Miller.” It should, of course, have said Second World War. Pearl Miller was the most famous madam in Calgary history. She ran bawdy houses in the city from the mid-1920s to the early 1940s.
