The August 2019 issue of Informer will deal exclusively with Prohibition Era Mafia leader Salvatore Maranzano - life, career, assassination and post-assassination aftermath. Through articles, photos and maps, Informer will tackle the many questions about Maranzano, including:
- Who was Salvatore Maranzano?
- What did he look like? (And what did he certainly NOT look like?)
- What does a recent discovery tell us about him?
- What was said about him by those who knew him in life?
- Where were the locations significant to his life and career?
- When did Maranzano-related events occur?
- Why was he important in U.S. Mafia history?
- How has he been portrayed by Hollywood?
- What do we know of Maranzano's life in Sicily?
- Was there really a post-Maranzano Mafia purge?
Pages for the issue are currently being laid out. (Issue is expected to weigh in at around seventy-two pages.)
Plans call for the August Informer to be released in the usual print and electronic/PDF formats (through the MagCloud service). And, with some luck, the issue also will be available in a Kindle ebook format.
