Welll, this is rather strange… I got a copy of Glen McDonald's “How Come I'm Dead?” somewhen this year. After having read the first chapter, I put it in store with my other Flynn books. Now I accidentally examined the dedication, and it struck me. It says:

“To Bev and Ron   Happy Thanksgiving   Linc”

Could it be? Could it be that Lincoln D. Hurst offered this book to Beverly Aadland and her second husband Ron Fisher? And that I happened to get that copy???? I mean, think about it! Lincoln D. Hurst offering such a book about her deceased lover to Beverly?!?

I ordered the book online from BayCityBooks in Benicia, California in June 2010, so it might well be that Ronald Fisher sold it after Beverly's death… I'm still somewhat stunned…

    That tops my find. I have Nora's book that once belonged to a Hollywood writer. Your's is quite the find if it was in deed dedicated by Mr. Hurst.

    This sounds exactly like the way Linc would have signed his name to the book… quite a remarkable thing that you found this particular copy of the book! It brings Linc Hurst to mind and somehow makes me feel he has just found a way to participate in the blog…

    Perhaps this is a temporary lapse in judgment on my part as I swore never to comment on anything related to Flynn in a public venue again, I feel compelled to mention that nothing happens by accident. Lincoln did indeed tell me about this book and that he had given a copy to Bev and Ron. and so you have it. I made notes on that conversation because I intended on reading that book myself but I later changed my mind. Remember that Einstein said that God does not play dice with the universe. Amen.

    I had the wrong book. Not Nora's, but Tedd Thomey's The Big Love. It belonged to Charles Eastman, playwright and screenwriter. It even had the original receipt from January 20, 1962 from The Shorebird in Palos Verdes Estates. Cost a mere $2.08 which I just noticed was 4 copies at 50 cents each. Which means I paid a lot for this book. LOL I'm glad Shamrock stopped by I've missed his posts. And DD I so agree that finding this dedicated copy is a way for your friend Lincoln to participate on the blog. I don't quite understand why he would pick this particular book though to give to Beverly as it is about EF's autopsy and shares intimate moments. No wonder Patrice threw an ashtray (or whatever it was) at MacDonald. His assistant mutilated her husband!!!

    Thank you, Tom, I do feel very honoured that you forgot your oath for a moment. I think we all regret not to have your comments anymore – am I being bold in asking why this is? It is such a pity!

    Very interesting, Kathleen, thank you! I think, if I remember it correctly, it was you who actually made me order the book – we were discussing the question of Errol's wedding ring and someone mentioned MacDonald's book, and I think it was you…

    Yes, that's a wonderful thought, David… He has found many ways to participate already, I think…
