Maybe We Need a Letter from God: The Star Trek Stamp. The drive to honor Star Trek on a U.S. postage stamp is unique. This book traces an old-fashioned grassroots movement, long before easy access to the speed of the Internet, that involved a strategy of signed petitions, endorsement letters and media exposure. Fueled by the spontaneous combustion of fan fervor, the Star Trek Stamp Committee embarked on a journey that took over a decade to complete. A dubious Citizens’ Stamp Advisory Committee, a bureaucratic force field, thwarted the Star Trek Stamp Committee’s efforts for 13 years.  The book includes over eighty endorsement letters from some of the most renowned individuals in the worlds of science, science fiction and government, along with documentation from some of the nation’s leading newspapers such as USA Today, the Los Angeles Times, the Chicago Sun Times, and Time Magazine. Signed by author Bill Kraft. Soft Cover.
