Apollo Astronauts I've met

During the nearly twenty years I traded in flown-in-space memorabilia, I had the opportunity to meet almost all of the surviving Apollo Astronauts (ie: those involved in the program to put a human being on the Moon) Over this time I came to know some of them very well, enjoying more than a few glasses of wine and some great conversations: these formed the basis of my first book 'Our Forbidden Moon'.
