"Well, to make a long story short. I never told anyone this before except for Milo a few years ago, actually when the book was published.That's why I run this blog...
As I think you know I arranged for the English edition of his memoir to be published with Sunbury Press in Philadelphia. I knew the publisher and I knew he could publish a book like Milo's memoir quickly, so I called Milo on the phone and said "Milo, I can set up your book for publication. Want to do it?" Because Milo at that point had given up trying to get a book published, all he got was rejections from publishers in the USA,
But....I had never heard of Milo before. I didn't know him. I had never heard of him...But one day, while reading your website, I came across a link you hotlinked to "a blog by Milo Thornberry about his work in Taiwan during the Martial law period"...so curious, I clicked on the link and found Milo's blog. In which he lamented that he had written a book length memoir about his life in Taiwan in the 1970s but could not find a publisher. Having a direct line to God, I emailed Milo and asked for his phone number. He gave it to me. I called him. I said Milo, I can get your book published. As a paperback, no fees or payments on your part. Want to try it? He said Yes! and Larry Knorr at Sunbury published the book.....so now you know the rest of story.
Without your link that day when i just happened to have chanced upon his blog link from you... I never would have made his acquaintance
