about us Henri Weiner, Paul Haggard Stephen Longstreet - Writer Stephen Longstreet - Artist email home

It's hard to know just where to place "Thomas Burton" as his two books "And so Dedicated.." and "Bloodbird" it's sequel came out just prior to and after "Decade". Below is another set of pictures from our private collection. Of particular note is the signature page in which Stephen Longstreet as "Thomas Burton" signs the book to his friend "Dick" another screenwriter he hopes to write with in the future. This is the beginning of his new start in California as he starts his life in the Hollywood scene. There is also a dedication to his second child, Harry Stephen, as this new turn in life begins, Henri Weiner fades as a forgotten memory.

"Mr. Burton, whose AND SO DEDICATED appeared last November, here continues his dramatic presentation of life in that vital compound of crudity and culture, corruption and idealism, the typical American city of Corinth. But though the setting and some of the characters will be familiar to readers of this dynamic young writer's earlier book, the present novel develops a new theme and reaches even deeper into the conflicting elements of our society for its drama and meaning."
