A couple of days back I was doing a bit of office de-cluttering and I came across two items I forgot I had. They are the original A4 manuscripts for two of my early books, "Teacher in Space: The Christa McAuliffe Story" (later changed by the publisher to "Teacher in Space: Christa McAuliffe and the Challenger Legacy") and "The Oceans to Orbit" (later changed to just "Oceans to Orbit" by the publisher), which is my authorised biography of Paul Scully-Power. The Scully-Power book was actually typed on a portable typewriter, pre-computer days.

What makes these even more interesting is that the Teacher in Space manuscript was sent to Barbara Morgan for her corrections, and she has suggested several changes in margin notes on many pages in her own handwriting, in both black and blue ink. Likewise, Paul Scully Power has made numerous handwritten margin notes in red pen where he suggested changes were to be made.

As these are only taking up space in my filing cabinet I was wondering if anyone would like either or both? As I'm missing several of the post-STS 107 crew-signed photos I am wondering if anyone would care to offer a trade for these them? Obviously their provenance is unquestionable. I will post anywhere in the world at my expense. I'd be looking for at least two authentic crew-signed photos for each manuscript, and do not care if they are inscribed to anyone or not. Best offer/s wins.
