Introducing James M. Essig, author of Call Of The Cosmic Wild Volume 1

“I do not know of any other publisher that produces gray scale paperbacks for retail and at author discount rates that are on par with the affordability of Outskirts. So, I will be using Outskirts for many years to follow for additional books. The quality of the finished published products and the price for black and white editions are the best in the trade.”

James Essig has received a B.S. Degree in Physics from George Mason University. He previously worked as an independent inventor and has obtained numerous U.S. Patents along with his co-inventor and brother John. James enjoys hiking, nature, and reading on a wide variety of topics including physics, cosmology, space travel technologies, and the theology of the human soul. James is also a member of the Knights Of Columbus.

“Overall, Colleen, Larry Gray, and the rest of the Outskirts staff who handled my case did a good job. I was personally a bit testy at first since I did not understand how Outskirts worked. As a friend of mine suggested, it would be wise to continue working with Outskirts and do more of the homework including document formatting myself. After I had received my 5 free paper back copies, I became absolutely sold on Outskirts Press. The quality of the interior paper, the formatting, and the smoothness of the three non-spine edges of the book are outstanding. I was just looking at a copy of my book last evening in the presence of my mother and kept remarking how beautiful it looked. The thick, bright white, smooth paper combined with the excellent type and figure resolution makes the book look immaculate. I am currently editing the second book but will definitely send the second book your way in about 1 or 2 months. Keep up the good work!”
