Friend (met George in 1967 when I was 17 year old freshman at Un of Kansas -- got to know him across the years, including a fast discussion about a lovely woman we both knew -- me as friend of her younger brothers -- him, I think more one-on-one years earlier -- in a Boston hotel event room during the 1984 Baseball Sports Writer of America annual dinner. George was the Boston Redsox's reporter for the Boston Herald and I had scored tickets to the dinner from an ad agency friend. Got to meet Ted Williams, bonus.

George's early work is Only Skin Deep. It is not only sexual, but funny as hell. Has a nice introduction added after Geoge's death in 2011. Kimball's boxing books are now the standards for that sport. A unique person, I'm very glad to have a book that I didn't buy in1968. George was also active as editor and other roles in the famous "Grist" magazine, published by John Fowler at the Abington Book Store. George's connections were deep into the 'beat' community, from S. Clay Wilson to William Burroughs and Charley Plymell.
