The Published Words of Kevin D. Randle

From time to time I find, buried on the Internet, challenges to some of the things I have said, or have been said about me. What annoys me most about these is that anyone who has access to the Internet would be able to learn the truth. A little research from such diverse sources as the Library of Congress to Amazon.com would have killed one of the latest rumors.

Some guy, who I have apparently offended at some point, has been saying that he didn’t believe I had written as many books as I said. He claimed that he had researched this at the Library of Congress site and could only find references to 25 titles. He suggested the others might be self-published or might be articles in magazines. He found it difficult to believe that I could have written more than a hundred books... I guess he never heard that Isaac Asimov had written more than 400 and the record for published books was something over 700. My claim is small compared to those.

This guy wanted to see a list of my published books, include the ISBN for them. Well, I’m not going to take the time to look up that for each of the books but I do have a list of my published works, complete with the date and the publisher. Many can be found listed at Amazon.com. So, he can look that up himself, or he can learn how to use the Library of Congress properly.

Following is a list of my books, by series and type, including the pen name I used for them. This should end this part of the discussion and I’ll wait, patiently, for that man to apologize for his mistake. I don’t expect it, but I’ll wait just the same.

Pretty impressive Kevin. I give you due credit for all that. It is certainly news to me.

Regarding Hamlet, you did realise there is a school of thought that claims Shakespeare did not write most of his plays?

KRandle said...

CDA -

Of course... and the Roger Bacon manuscripts are buried at the bottom of Oak Island, not the pirate gold that most believe.

cda said...

Kevin: Methinks you are confusing Roger Bacon (13th century) with Francis Bacon. But never mind, I am still very impressed with your literary output, whether SF or non-fiction. I had absolutely no idea you had written and produced so much. Nor did I know you had written under a nom-de-plume.

KRandle said...

I knew better, of course. I don't know why I said Roger... but that doesn't change the fact that the manuscripts are buried on Oak Island rather than pirate treasure, or Aztec gold, or the secrets of Atlantis.

I mostly check out the UFO stuff but nonetheless very impressive work Mr Randle.

Hi Kevin,
Had no idea you had so many books under your belt.
Of course, I have been aware of the UFO titles and have several of them in my own library.
If you are ever feeling social, contact me via my email ted_roe@narcap.org
I am the Executive Director of Dr. Haines research program, NARCAP.org and would love to chat sometime. I do have some questions that I would like to engage.
All the best,
Ted

Kevin:

Quite an oeuvre. Nice and worthy of many kudos.

I never knew you wrote that many books Kevin.

I remember reading "The October Scenario" when I was a kid in the early nineties.

I'll have to check some of your other books out.
