Our Books

Most of Orest's books are still available, both online and in brick and mortar stores.

Her Harmonic Orator is for sale online at the publisher, Pendragon Press. It appears that, in the second printing, two pages were omitted. For that reason, she has prepared a page with scans of the two missing pages.

Patricia's other books are more difficult to obtain;

Her edition (with Janice Heuer) of family letters, Remember Me to All Who May Inquire is no longer available through If you desire a copy, please send us an  email  and we will work something out.

Amazon no longer sells Patricia's Portraits around Marc-Antoine Charpentier. Pendragon Press sells it, however. And Patricia has plenty of copies looking for readers. Indeed, she will gladly give the book to anyone who writes her an email and agrees to either send her the postage in advance or who pays through the PayPal account in the name of "Orest Ranum". and the email address:  Postage is $13.25 anywhere in the USA in a Priority Mail box. The same sort of box can be mailed to foreign countries for $44 USA.
