Furnace Press announces winner of Decomposition Series contest
A little while back, Furnace Press held a call for submissions contest for its forthcoming Decomposition Series, which focuses on "noteworthy abandoned sites in New York State".
I'm part of Furnace Press, and I saw the entries. They were good, and it was competitive. But a winner was picked, and by the end of 2008, Furnace Press will publish Elevator Alley: The Working Landscape of Buffalo's Ward by Michael Cook and Andrew Emond.
Michael Cook runs the website The Vanishing Point, which is personally of note for its detailed sections on Storm Drainage and Power Generation. (One of my favorite things that I did at Niagara Falls was the tour of the Sir Adam Beck 2 Generating Station.)
An interview with Cook ran on BLDGBLOG this last summer as well.
It'll be interesting to see what Cook and Emond do with Buffalo's Elevator Alley.
