Pelle Lindbergh Behind the White Mask

Pelle Lindbergh: Behind the White Mask
by Bill Meltzer and Thomas Tynander
978-0-912608-01-3, $16.95 paperback
6" x 9", 275 pages, illustrated with photographs

Pelle Lindbergh follows the life and career of Pelle, from his childhood in post-WWII Stockholm, to the 1980 Olympics and his time playing for the Philadelphia Flyers.

Growing up in Sweden, Pelle Lindbergh dreamed of playing goalie in the National Hockey League. More specifically, he wanted to follow his boyhood idol, Bernie Parent, and play for the Philadelphia Flyers. The dream became a reality when the Philadelphia Flyers drafted him during the second round of the 1979 NHL entry draft. What no one knew at the time was that the dream would end so tragically.

Pelle made the Flyers full time during 1982-1983 season, and was named to the All Rookie team. In 1985, he helped lead the Flyers to the Stanley Cup Final, and became the first European to win the Vezina trophy as the NHL's best goalie. In November of 1985, Pelle's life was cut short when he died in a car accident during the season. He was the first player to be posthumously voted to an all-star team in North American Sports.

About the authors
Bill Meltzer writes a weekly column for NHL.com on European and international hockey, entitled Across the Pond. He also covers the Philadelphia Flyers for Inside Hockey and was previously the Flyers editor for Hockey's Future and a features columnist for Pro Hockey Euro Report. Self-taught in written Swedish, Meltzer assisted Swedish sportswriter Thomas Tynander on the Swedish version of this book. Tynander has been a sportswriter in Sweden for over 20 years.


Who's Better  Rangers, Devils, Islanders or the Flyers

Who's Better: Rangers, Devils, Islanders or the Flyers
by Stan Fischler and Glenn "Chico" Resch
978-0-912608-35-8, $16.95 paperback
6" x 9", 275 pages, illustrated with photographs

You can't count the number of times hockey fans have raised the question about their favorite players, teams, coaches- you name it. Inevitably, the discussions ensue because no aficionado is more passionate nor dedicated than the hockey fan. Give a follower of the Rangers, Devils, Islanders, and Flyers a subject for debate and you'll get in return, keen interest and - more than likely - heated debate. The book will not only invite fans in North America's most hockey-intense corridor to debate their favorite subjects but the authors will provide authoritative, substantiated, anecdotal and statistical conclusions; which, of course, will spur further arguments.

About the authors
Stan Fischler has written over sixty hockey books. He is a Lester Patrick Award winner and has been covering the NHL for over fifty years. He is currently the host of "Hockey Night Live" on the MSG Network. Glenn "Chico" Resch won a Stanley Cup while playing Goalie for the New York Islanders. After his playing days were over he became an NHL coach. He has also authored two books and is currently a hockey analyst on the MSG and Fox Sports Networks.


Back Again

Back Again
by Rich Westcott
978-0-912608-15-0, $16.95 paperback
6" x 9", 160 pages, illustrated with photographs

Coming off their 2008 World Series Championship, The 2009 Phillies were one of the most popular groups in Phillies history, as evidenced by their 73 sellouts and the 3 million six hundred thousand fans that poured into Citizens Bank Park during the season.

Prior to 2008-09, the Phillies had never made two trips in a row to the World Series. Nor had they ever had six straight years when they finished either first or second in the division. The Phils had also set a club record through 2009 with seven straight seasons in which they won 85 or more games.

No National League team had taken home two consecutive titles since the Reds did it in the 1970's. The 2009 team, featuring Ryan Howard, Chase Utley and Jimmy Rollins was the most popular group in team history and were just 2 wins away from making history. This book looks into the background of the most popular team in Phillies history.

About the Author
Rich Westcott is a baseball writer and historian. Considered the leading authority on Phillies history, he is the author of 20 other books. A newspaper and magazine writer and editor for more than 40 years, he has written for numerous national publications and was the founder and for 14 years was the publisher and editor of Phillies Report. A member of three halls of fame, he has served as a journalism instructor at two local universities and appears in seven film documentaries. Westcott is a special advisor to the Philadelphia Sports Hall of Fame, and is the incoming president of the Philadelphia Sports Writers' Association.
