Author Introduction: Allan Richard Shickman



Recently I had the pleasure of reading Zan-Gah and Zan-Gah and the Beautiful Country for Allan Richard Shickman. I must say that these books were completely different from anything I've read before, but in an extremely good way!

Reviews are coming tomorrow and Thursday, but first let's meet this amazing author.

ZAN-GAH author Allan Richard Shickman conceived Zan's adventure after thousands of miles of travel through mountains, deserts and forest land. The idea for this exciting story was born in a cave deep beneath the earth— in the company of hundreds of bats.

Allan is an artist, teacher, actor, author, historian, gardener, and former Boy Scout. He has published articles in The Art Bulletin, Art History, English Literary Renaissance, Studies in English Literature: 1500-1900, Notes and Queries, and Colby Quarterly. He was also Art and Music Bibliographer for Shakespeare Quarterly. He has had many letters in various newspapers, including a dozen in The New York Times. Allan taught the history of art at the University of Northern Iowa for three decades. He now lives and writes in St. Louis.
