More on Cathy Spude's book about Soapy.

Back on June 27, 2009 I reported that Cathy Spude was publishing a book entitled, Soapy: Truth Stranger than legend, 1898. Her goal she openly admits, is to attempt to show that Soapy Smith was nothing but a small time criminal so that her hero, J. M. Tanner, might have a chance to become better known. Her book was scheduled to come out in September 2009 but changes have been noted on her website. The title has been changed to Soapy Smith and Frank Reid: The Legend and the date of publication has been changed to May 2010. This is great news as hopefully her book will encourage debate, helping continued sales of my book and helping to keep Soapy on peoples minds.
