The Errol Flynn Blog Mailbag! Lincoln Hurst’s book Reviewed?

23 Jul

Karl Holmberg, a greast friend of The Errol Flynn Blog sent me a review back in 2010 of our dear friend Prof. Lincoln D. Hurst’s forthcoming book ERROL FLYNN: The True Adventures of a Real Life Rogue. (Linc hated the Rogue part of the title but it was a compromise.) The book was never published becasuse our friend passed away while trying to reconstruct lost chapters in a computer crash and write the book so Karl bring’s up the question, How do you accurately review a book that never saw print, or even galleys?

    Thanks (Lincoln), Karl & David!

    Looking forward to reading the review, but have been unable to access so far.

        Thanks, David! Like the cover very much and much of the review, though I would take issue with a few things, including the implication Flynn did not write any of MWWW. But it’s a good and well written review, that doesn’t dwell on the false and salacious, but rather on the extraordinary talents of Flynn. Good for Lincoln making that happen.

        Wow, I’d love to read all of what Lincoln had to say about Errol!

          It may be possible to get permission from Tym Hurst to have some pieces of the book that were meant for publication be published in a film magazine under Lincoln’s name. It would be at least something. It may be a matter of whether or not Scarecrow Press has copyrights.
