Booklist — Chuck Fager

(Not Entirely Complete, But Mostly)

Logo-CEF-with nameMy first book was published in 1967,  and I haven’t really stopped since. Most of them have been either self-published or issued by small presses.  That reflects both my stubbornness in the face of publisher bad judgment (i.e., rejection), and a preoccupation with niche subjects (e.g., Quakers) plus hopeless causes (peace, civil rights, ending torture). It hasn’t been all “vanity” — some titles have sold several thousand copies, and overall, I haven’t lost money on the efforts. Nowadays — hallelujah! — self-publishing is a mass phenomenon, and (almost) respectable.
