New book, "Lost Girl," tells the story of "Land of the Lost" star Kathy Coleman

I'd venture that a fair number of readers here have fond memories of Sid and Marty Krofft's "Land of the Lost" live-action show from Saturday mornings in the 1970s.

I'd also venture that some of you are also fans of Booksteve's Library and  his family of pop culture blogs. I know I am.

So, it's big news to report that Booksteve (a.k.a. Steven Thompson) has assisted "Land of the Lost" star Kathy Coleman, who played Holly Marshall on the show, in writing her autobiography.

The book, "Lost Girl," recounts Kathy's adventures amongst the sleestaks and other Hollywood creatures and is supplemented with a generous helping of color photos. You can order it via Amazon here.

Congrats to Steven and Kathy on seeing their work in print!
