Please Note: Collectible Hardcover copies are printed to order and may take up to six weeks for delivery from the date the order is placed.

Correction: In the first print edition of this book, the Young Writer quill for William Cagle was placed next to the page number for Nels Hanson's contribution in the Table of Contents. 

In the text of each piece, the quill is placed correctly next to William Cagle's biography (and correctly omitted from Nels Hanson's).

We apologize for this error and will correct it in future printings.
