Great Author

Library | Longstrider

While reading a resent article in the ANA's Numismatist or was it a Coin World, I so enjoyed the article that I checked out the author. It was James R. Clifford. I researched him and found he also wrote a novel. It's called Double Daggers. I read the book and highly recommend it. It's a great read when you want to stay in the field of numismatics but need a break from pure facts. In short, the story follows the path of the Eid Mar coin. Though fiction there is a lot of historic fact inside. You might give it a try.

Yep, pretty good historical fiction. Decent read, even if you just have a casual interest in history; more enjoyable if you collect ancient coins! This is a title stocked by the ANA library - check the "Library Catalog" for current availability (under the "Discover" heading on the ANA home page.)

What is his website? I think it is neat that your sharing.. if it is something you love might as well. Well we are looking forward to having you! Hopefully you enjoy what we have in the gift shop, as well as the whole museum. Of course I am always open to any suggestions of what to bring into the gift shop. Are you just coming to visit in the summer or will you be attending the summer seminar?

That would be great, in my opinion. The auther has autographed all the books I bought from him, 3. He has a pretty cool web site. I swear I don't work for him. I'm looking forward to visiting the gift shop this summer.
