More Gene Logsdon Info : LUSENET : A Village Commons : One Thread

He has an article coming out in The Draft Horse Journal sometime soon (don't know which issue yet, I'm trying to find out). He has an article slated for the Sept/Oct 2001 issue of Organic Gardening Magazine. He is writing an article for the April/May 2002 issue of Mother Earth News.

He has a new book out, "Wildlife in The Garden" (updated from the first edition published in the 80's).

He has a novel slated to come out in November, called "The Man Who Created Paradise". It is currently available in a handbound, handprinted on handmade paper collector's edition. Available from: Bob Baris, Press On Scroll Road, 2210 Scroll Road SW, Carrolton, OH 44615. Cost is $65 plus $3.50 shipping and handling. There are about 50 left of an original run of 119.

The conventional, trade paperback version will be available sometime around November for around $20, from conventional booksellers (Bob Baris ONLY has the collector's edition for $68.50)

His current titles are "You Can Go Home Again", "Wildlife In Your Garden", "The Contrary Farmer", "The Contrary Farmer's Introduction to Gardening", and "Good Spirits: A new look at ol' demon alcohol". Several of these titles are available from friends of his who buy them at wholesale, sell them at retail, and give Gene ALL the profits. Otherwise he only gets like a buck per book from the publisher. Their address is Andy Reinhart, 3624 T.R. 136, Bellefontaine, OH, 43311. I know they've got "Home", "Good Spirits", and "Wildlife", I have a query out to find out what else they've got.

You can also get "The Big Things in Life are the Little Things", a compendium of some of his articles for the Carey Progressor Times, from Slow Lane Publishers, 1198 E. Findlay St., PO Box 37, Carey, OH 43316 or phone them at (419) 396-7567. Talk to the same folks if you're interested in a subscription to the Carey Progressor Times, Gene is still writing that weekly column for them. Last week's article was entitled "An Old Fart's Survival Guide"

He has an article in the premiere (and current) issue of Farming, a new magazine put out by an Amish friend of his, address is PO Box 85, Mt. Hope, OH 44660. He has another article slated for the second issue of this magazine, due to come out in the fall. Sounds like its a quarterly, I've got queries out over there as well. I'll be subscribing as soon as I get the info.

Gene tells me he writes about 6 articles a year (roughly every two months) for a publication called "LandOwner", put out by the Farm Journal folks. The address is Farm Journal, PO Box 36, Cedar Falls, Iowa 50613. At $84 a year its a bit rich for my blood but I have hopes of getting specific back issues. He wrote an article he describes as "sort of a debate" between him and an agribiz proponent in the June 11, 2001 issue. I'm going for that back issue and also have requested a list of back issues (hopefully also a list of Gene's previously published articles, although come to think of it I haven't looked online yet, guess I'll go do that here in a minute).

I've got a 'way long list of articles published in the past, mostly (right now) appearing in Draft Horse Journal that'll be going up on the new website. Back issues of most of them are still available. If I ever get time and access to a good university library, I'll try to get a more complete list of his magazine articles up one of these days.

Right now that's about all I've got. I'll be starting up a "Logsden Alert" mailing list to keep folks apprised of his doings since a lot of times he has little or no advance warning, particularly when it comes to radio appearances, some of which we can listen to via web broadcasting. Let me know if you'd like to be on that list.
