So, I noticed there were no posts under TPB or DWC. So I decided to make this poll. Who has read it?  ???

I read it- I think Captain Forsyth is my favorite.

Btw, hi, I'm the colorist for Roswell, Texas.

An excellent novel and graphic novel (if I do say so myself).

You bet I've read it.  Read it when it first came out.  Bought 50 copies to hand out to people.  That's the novel, and most certainly I've read the graphic novel.  BTW, I'm the one who helped with writing Roswell, Texas.  Mostly, I did the research and wrote the timeline, tho, as Neil says, at this point it's hard to remember who had what idea first.

As Neil has said, PB is responsible for reviving the AltHist genre, paving the way for a whole lot of it these days.  But I have to add that it's also reponsible for the genre which you might call Raymond Chandler meets Lewis Carroll.

Well, I've kinda read it. Up to Page 42 via the online sample version. I've warmed up to Win Bear, because he has that Joe Friday/Philip Marlowe feel to him. But after those first 42 pages, I need to know how this graphic novel ends. And, I know that there's only one way to do that... ;)

And you can.  The book is available from several sources online.  If you don't like shopping online, and you don't see a copy at your favorite book store, be sure to tell them they need to stock it.

Betcherass I've read it.  Read the novel back in (mumblemumble)don't remember.  I think it was late seventies, but I don't remember the original publish date.  Bought it off a drugstore shelf in Texas.  Cover with a gorilla banging a podium with the butt of a handgun kinda caught my eye.

Bought the GN as soon as it became available.  Daughter hates it; need a new daughter.

I think that both the booka dn the gn should be read...personally I like all the smith books I can get my hands o...they're a great read

The "gorilla cover" prose book was the first edition, published in December 1979 (although most stores didn't get it until early 1980). It's something of a collectors' item now among Smithophiles, although I can't tell you what that means in terms of resale value.

Nothing, in the case of my copy -- not only am I uninterested in selling it, it's beat to hell from many years and many rereadings.  My new copy isn't holding its condition too well either.

I've got two copies of the graphic novel.  One for reading, and one in a ziploc bag that I'll take with me next time I find my way west to Colorado and Wyoming.
