Is anyone familiar with "The Blacks" published by Nelson Enterprises? It doesn't seem to have been written by Robert Nelson, but was sold through his catalog (#565). It looks great and I thought I'd see if anyone had a copy anywhere, but I didn't find any references to it at all.

Thanks
Courtney

What makes you think it wasn't written by Bob Nelson?

Well, it could have been. It doesn't say in the catalog who it is by so I originally assumed it was by Nelson, but I looked at the bibliography section of "The secret domain of Dr. RaMayne" and it wasn't listed.

I emailed Diego Domingo, one of the experts on Nelson. He could not tell me definitively that Nelson wrote it. It is my strong suspicion that he did and that the back story is simply that - a story.

It's the sort of thing Bob Nelson would have done.

Makes sense. Still, it is a good story. Same goes for the whole catalog, it's 62 years old and each time I read it I want to go out and buy everything.

If anyone knows of a copy available let me know; if I can afford it I wold be interested.

I do have a copy. I know I got it off EBay a few years back but can't remember the seller.
He had put two small post-it notes on it. One said "thought you might like to have this Nelson item.It used to belong to Walter Gibson",and the other note said "this is autographed!"(but its not,maybe he meant to attach that post it to whatever else I purchased at the time.)

I'm looking for a copy of "The Blacks" from Nelson Enterprises to complete my library. If you have one for sale, or know where I can obtain one (preferably with the envelope), I'd be much obliged.

Thanks.

P.S. I currently have an active post in the Books area of the Marketplace, but so far, no responses.
