Books

We receive many requests for inscribed copies of Jerry’s books—as well as for collectible first editions, limited-editions, and broadsides—so we’ve decided to make them available here, with a secure and easy-to-use shopping cart. If you have any questions, please email Gail at: gail[at]jerrydennis[dot]net.

Not everyone has access to independent book stores, but if you do, or if you’re traveling in their vicinity, we hope you’ll support them. Visit our website at Big Maple Press to learn more about our commitment to publishing fine books for indie stores.
