Looking for the perfect holiday gift?

As much as I complain about Amazon, I can't entirely desert it; for one thing, I get my books published there. For another, it has made the ability to get last-minute gifts much easier than it used to be. So even though there are only nine shopping days left until Christmas, that leaves plenty of time for you to pick out something special for that special someone, Even if that special someone happens to be you.

Allow me to humbly suggest The Electronic Mirror: What Classic TV Tells Us About Who We Were and Who We Are (and Everything In-Between)After all, you wouldn't be here if you didn't already like classic television, right? So why not take advantage of it? When I compare the total sales to the number of readers of this blog, I know there are a few of you out there who have yet to take advantage of it.

The Electronic Mirror looks at how classic TV acts as a time capsule, telling us how life used to be, and in many cases how things got the way they are today. It contains the best of what I've written for It's About TV!, along with many new essays written expressly for the book. Not only does it feature many of your favorite shows and stars, it also places them in context, explaining their meaning and significance. As Carol Ford (Bob Crane: The Definitive Biography) says, "You won't watch TV the same way again!"  Best of all, you'll have fun along the way. If you like It's About TV!, you'll love The Electronic Mirror. And at $12.95 (plus shipping, unless you're a Prime member) it won't break the bank.

The link above takes you to the Amazon link, but The Electronic Mirror is also available at Barnes &, as well as many other online retailers. And if you really want to make it a special gift, how about a signed copy? After you've placed your order, just send me an email (the address is on the sidebar) with your address, telling me who it's for and how you'd like it signed, and I'll send you a bookplate that you can insert in your copy. Don't be shy; I won't bite!

I'm very proud of The Electronic Mirror, and I'm confident you and your favorite classic TV fan will enjoy this trip through television history. If you've already got it (and if you haven't, why not?), consider one of my novels, The Collaborator or The Car, available here. You'll want the complete Mitchell Hadley collection of books, for sure, so order now. There may still be time, but it isn't infinite, you know. TV
