MADOC'S HUNDRED Bantam First Edition ISBN: 0-553-28521-1
Authors don't always get to title their books. Woman Called Arkansas is the same book about the Father of Arkansas-- Henri deTonti-- as Bantam's River of Destiny.
Woman Called Arkansas, ISBN 0-595-14029-7
Woman Called Arkansas earned Henri deTonti's love along with the wrath of French King Louis the VIX, who never forgave his soldier for mating with what Louis considered a savage woman.
Weeononka, Fleet Woman of the Quapaw, was much, much more than that. In the sequel to Woman Called Arkansas, His Majesty unaware will get the chance to meet Mademoiselle Arkansas among the half-dozen Native Americans history records he invited to live the rest of their lives as specimens in his private zoo at Versailles.
Short story in Infinity One first published in 1970 by Lancer Books. Inc. What a thrill to have the story's original Mother character-- She Who Walks in Silver-- as the cover illustration among science fiction greats Asimov, Clarke, Lafferty, McCaffrey, Silverberg.
The completed, yet-to-be-published 190,000-word novel spins out of the author's first published work, two short stories:
POLIMANDER'S MAN-THING, Analog Science Fiction/Science Fact Magazine, April 1973, The Conde Nast Publications, Inc., New York
INSIDE MOTHER, Infinity One, A Magazine in Book Form, 1970, Edited by Robert Hoskins, Lancer Books, Inc., New York
Inside Mother from Infinity One and stories by Asimov, Dick, Bester and Ballard were reprinted in the 1983 anothology for German students of English with a brief footnoted lexicon in “Fremdsprachentexte: Science Fiction Stories 1” edited by Herausgegeben von Dieter Wessels, Philipp Reclam jun. Stuttgart, Germany, Universal-Bibliothek Nr. 9156  1983/ISBN 3-15-009156-X
Another first--and only poem, Memo to Secretary, was featured in the Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction, June 1966. I recently came across a yellowed note of March 12, 1968 inside a copy of the June issue from Editor Edward L. Ferman rejecting a submitted short story, but adding, ". . . We owe you a small reprint fee. The original check was returned to a North Hollywood address some time ago, 'moved, left no address.' I'm enclosing a new check herewith."
Signed, E. Ferman
The poem was reprinted in "The Best of ..." the Magazine for the previous year. I was delighted to find the hardcover in the Los Angeles Public Library at the end of Hope Street .
