    @wsyoon, it seems like we have a bit of a disconnect regarding the lists that are posted here — I’ll work on making that a bit clearer. All of the books/mags/newspapers that are listed on this site are materials that Courtney has already received or will receive. I am sure Courtney would be most grateful to receive any book that is not on the list. If you do send something, please let me know title and author so I can add it to the list.

  3. Ruth says:

    Disregard my previous email. After rereading the abouve I now understand the materials on the website have been sent to Courtney.

  4. John Hines says:

    I have just mailed to following books to Courtney, in preparation for his next class:

    Islands in the Sky – Schmidt and Zubrin
    Beyond Earth – Krone
    Entering Space – Zubrin

    Please add these to his library list.
