Received from Boggs SpaceBooks:
We are excited about a new biography on U.S. astronaut Gus Grissom, to be released this Fall by the Indiana Historical Society Press. “Gus Grissom: The Lost Astronaut” by historian Ray Boomhower, is a long overdue account of Grissom’s life. He was the second U.S. astronaut to fly in Project Mercury, the first to fly in Project Gemini and would have been the first in orbit on Apollo had the Apollo 1 fire not taken his life.

This extensive biography is hardbound with a dust jacket, 300 pages in length with many B&W photos and is being SIGNED for us by the author, Ray Boomhower. Ray has conducted extensive interviews with members of the Grissom family and has drawn on Grissom’s Indiana friends to provide an insightful account of his life.

The book has been published and is set for an October 1st release date. Through special arrangement with the author and publisher, we will have copies SIGNED September 14th and will be shipping soon after.

You can pre-order a copy now by going to or by replying to this email. Cost is $19.95 plus shipping. The first printing is quite small, so contact us quickly.
