My copy of this book had no author on the binding, no title page, no copyright page, nothing to indicate who wrote this book and when it was published. But with a little digging, I found it was written by Gordon Levy and published in 1980 by Western Arts Publishing Co.
It doesn’t have an ISBN but it does have an ASIN – B001LQQM8Q
There are ample quantities available new and used if you search by the title.
Now to the book itself. Here is the the copyright page that was not in my book but I found on line.
On the copyright page (above) and in the Introduction (below), there is mention of future volumes but I am only aware of this one volume. If anyone knows of subsequent volumes, please leave a comment at the end of the article.
