Novak, who will come on days when he is not committed elsewhere. Tom has writ- ten two very different books--his fi rst one is called “Good Ones and Scally- wags”, and is full of stories about his bird dogs and their antics. Filled with lots of information about these spe- cial breeds of hunting dogs, and lots of humor. His second book, also non- fi ction, is called Among the Tin Cans and Broken Glass, and chronicles his 7 years with the Detroit Police Dept. during the race riots of the 60s in De- troit. Very poignant and very real. Mitt Winstead is also back this year on days when he can be here, with his new thrillers Evil and the Mirror, and Day Stalker. If you like suspense and lots of action, his books are full of it. Darlene Miller, author of RV Chuck- holes and Chuckles and More RV Chuckholes and Chuckles, has also been at the fair off and on and will be coming back as her time allows. Her books of full of the foibles we all face driving RVs and camping all over the country. Looking for a good laugh, this is the best in RV humor.
