Required assistance in ascertaining credentials of author of specialized history.

I have had no complaint. My contact with you resulted from my attempt to contact the publisher -- which assistance you graciously and professionally supplied. Yes, as a result of whatever intermediary work you did, I did receive an email at the end of last week providing me with an email address through which they said I could directly contact the author. When I have completed my due diligence, I do plan to contact Mr. Alexander concerning his excellent history of the Northwest Ordinance. I might also add, that the biographical information which I expected from his primary publisher was found via the authors' section of Amazon.com. Consequently, I have ordered and am awaiting delivery of the Mr. Alexander's book.

User's recommendation: Since, as stated above, I never had any complaint with McFarland and Company, I really have no recommendation to other potential customers. As far as I know they are a good publishing house for the types of fictional and creative materials which appear to be their prime cut. Handling an history text was a sort of peripheral enterprise, but one I am happy they chose as Mr. Alexander might not have been published by the larger houses which specialize in histories.

This company is not at all fair in dealing with its authors.

McFarland published two of my books and only issued one royalty check and claimed that I was harassing them when I tried to find out through very civil communication why I had not received more.book boo
