Beginning with a simple message board thread, here's the most complete keepsake you'll find anywhere of what SOX FANS felt in October and November of 2005 -- the very moment the Chicago White Sox scratched their 88 year championship itch.

From the book by editor George Bova:

The voice that emerges in this book is the voice of Sox fans who understand what this Sox championship represents.  It might be the only place the outside world can hear so clearly what we feel at this very moment in time...

Park Life, the Summer of 1977 at Comiskey Park

120 hardbound pages, 15" x 10.5"
69 black & white photographs by Totally Biased Sox Fan Peter Elliott.

Peter Elliott is a Chicago-based commercial photographer.  As a young man he spent the summer of 1977 with his fellow Sox Fans at Comiskey Park.  He took his camera with him and recorded these memorable photographs, but not of the ballplayers or the action on the field.  Those feats are recorded for posterity by countless sports photographers of that time. 

No, what Peter recorded was something very different and quite special, too.  Peter captured the essence of the ballpark and the fans of Chicago's South Side.  Here are pictures from a world that is too familiar to those of us old enough to have lived it, and just as obviously no longer with us.  These fans and this ballpark are gone.  For fans too young to remember, here is what you missed.  Peter's photography speaks to us as no voice from the past ever could, for truly his pictures are worth one-thousand words.

Through Hope and Despair,
A Fan's Memories of the Chicago White Sox 1967-1997

221 paperback pages, 8.5" x 5.5"
with illustrations by Totally Biased Sox Fan Dan Helpingstine.

Dan Helpingstine is a freelance writer from Highland, Indiana.  He wrote this book not to be the definitive history about his team the Sox, but to capture in words what it meant to be a Sox Fan and live through the 21 years of Sox history recounted here. 

It's a unique book, quite apart from what you'll find reading histories about the team and its exploits.  Dan writes about being a Sox Fan first and foremost.  All the other details that happen between the lines are secondary to what Sox Fans experienced, both in their ballpark seats and back where normal life resides.  Here's a book that captures what WSI strives to be on the internet.

Strength Down the Middle,
The Story of the 1959 Chicago White Sox

250 Hardcover pages, 9.6" x 6.3"
with illustrations by Totally Biased Sox Fan Larry Kalas.

Larry Kalas is a freelance writer who grew up in the Mount Greenwood neighborhood on the Far South Side of Chicago.  His book spends an entire season following the day to day events surrounding the most memorable White Sox team in 40 years marching in either direction--the 1959 Go-Go Sox.  This was a team built around exceptional pitching and a dead-ball era focus on doing the little things to win, totally unique among the long ball champion teams of that era.   Kalas writes as only a Sox Fan could about the uniqueness that was being a Sox Fan that season. 

It had been forty years since the Sox won the pennant and it has been over forty years since the '59 team won it.  Whether you're old enough to remember this season or not, here is a book Sox Fans really ought to read because a lifetime is too short to miss it.
