About the author (1995)

Until 1988, GEORGE NEWLIN spent his professional career combining activities in law and finance with volunteer service in the arts and serious avocational musical performance. At that time, he withdrew from most of his activities in venture capital and assets management and began developing his concept for a new kind of literary anthology, beginning with the works of Charles Dickens. He continues his pro bono services in the music field.
