A Tribute to Robert A. Nelson


From Nelson Enterprises Catalog Number 26: "Photo of spectator listening to the World Famous Enchanted Talking Teakettle. Picture reprinted from Linking Ring Magazine."

Nelson Books

As of this writing, I only know of three major sources for Nelson material:

Micky Hades - Bob sold the publishing rights to most of his books and manuscripts to Micky Hades before his death in 1973, many of which are still available.

H&R Books - This is an off-and-on source for both original Nelson books and the Micky Hades publications.

Ebay - The sale of Nelson material on Ebay seems to run in phases, but you can find some real gems if you wait long enough.
