Brian Leno confesses, “I have no autographed copies of Talbot Mundy volumes, but I do have the signed check presented here.
“I started reading Mundy after Robert E. Howard and once, many years ago, I came upon five or six old hardbacks of his novels for 20 cents each in an used bookstore.
“No dust jackets came with the books, but a nice deal nonetheless.
“Mundy and Harold Lamb are not really tough signatures to locate, and are not all that expensive — with Mundy being perhaps the one that’ll take the most out of your pocket.
“Of course a book signed by either of these two gentlemen commands a higher price. Only to be expected.”
