Think I’ll get me a copy, as I don’t much mind over-written dialogue. 😀 Chad (Author) July 17, 2017 Reply I’ll bet the dialogue was at least fun to type-write! Richard P July 17, 2017 Reply Sounds like fun! I am impressed by the thickness of the book. Tom has been busy. Hammond Type-O-Matic? That’s a new one for me! 🙂 Chad (Author) July 17, 2017 Reply You know what, now I’m not sure about the Type-O-Matic. It’s in the book as Hammond Type-O-Matic; Wilson did use a Hammond, but I wonder if it’s an error? Probably should have done some research on that first.
