As an aside, my mention of Lulu.com in a previous post about POD publishing was merely to highlight an example and was not meant as an endorsement of that particular company. I've never actually held any of their products in my hands.
I recently finished reading Paul Branch's Siege of Fort Macon and will post a short review next week. Currently, I have Stephen Townsend's The Yankee Invasion of Texas on the nightstand. Looks great so far.
