I seem to recall replying to this posting before...

Anyway, if one looks at Mike Round's webpage (given at the bottom of his posting), "Book 2" does not seem to be a priority. The page lists 74 books "in the works", apparently none of them being about Bentley or snow. Too bad -- the first one was fun to look at, even if it had little to do with actual snow crystals.

Hi Sarah,

You could also look at the newsletter articles on this website.
Duncan Blanchard's book, which you mentioned, is the only comprehensive biography of Bentley I know of. Other than the book and the newsletter, you could post your specific questions and maybe someone can answer them.

Good luck with the novel,

Hi Snowflake Lovers,

I just completed a new short film about Wilson Bentley. You can watch it here...


Fantastic job Chuck! The presentation is very well done, with the mix of photos, video of snowy scenes, old movie footage, and interviews. I particularly like the discussions about the ideas that motivated Bentley. Excellent choices of people to interview and nice music too - I'll be watching it again and recommending it to others.
