I 've just heard from Michael F. Blake, the leadin authority regarding Lon Chaney. In July, Bear Manor Media is releasing Lon Chaney's Shadow by Suzanne Gargiulo. She contacted Michael, who gave her what information he had on the subject she was wanting, and then he didn't hear from her. This was three years ago.
But the forward is written by Phillip J. Riley, who doesn't know what he's talking about as far as Chaney's concerned. This being the case, Michael says he suspect the book is going to be misinformation or downright lies, if she's dealing with Riley.
