    • James W. Gibbs Literary Award
    • NAWCC Fellow Award
    I have been an NAWCC Member for over 30 years; I was made an NAWCC Fellow in 2003; and I received the James W. Gibbs Award for "Excellence in Horological Literature" in 2009. I founded the NAWCC "Pocket Horology" Chapter 174 (now inactive), and I have chaired two national seminars, including the 2002, "Boston: Cradle of Industrial Watchmaking" Seminar in Boxboro, MA. I have sixteen NAWCC BULLETIN publications, including a book, NAWCC BULLETIN Special Order Supplement #5, "E. Howard & Company Watchmaking Innovations: 1858 to 1870," published in 2005.

    My primary horological interests in American pocket watches are: the American Civil War and pre-Civil War periods; and E. Howard & Co. (a.k.a. "early Howard") watches generally. My current focus is on watches, of both domestic and foreign make, with documented Civil War provenances. Beginning in July of 2019, I will be guest curating an exhibit on Timepieces of the American Civil War at the NAWCC HQ Museum in Columbia, PA.

    I recently created a website: Clint Geller, to promote my new series of sci-fi/fantasy novels, but the "Pocket Horology" page on that site, named in honor of my old NAWCC chapter, discusses all of my past and ongoing horological endeavors.

    I published the first of three science fiction/fantasy novels, "Gennebar Rising: Part I: Awakenings," on Amazon.com in September of 2017:

    https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias=aps&field-keywords="Gennebar+Rising"

    The novel is quasi-historical, taking place in an imaginary world with strong resemblances with, but also big differences from, a celebrated time and place in real world history/mythology: First Century Palestine. There are no watches or clocks in my story, but the story line plays with modern concepts of space-time in entertaining ways. The entire three-book story received a very favorable write-up from Kirkus Reviews, a respected professional third party literary review service with a reputation for being tough, and even "cantankerous." Their review of "Gennebar Rising" can be found in their list of "Recommended" reads.

    Part I is available in ebook, soft cover and hard cover formats. The covers are being designed for parts II and III currently, with release of "Gennebar Rising, Part II: Into the Maelstrom," planned for January, 2018, and release of "Gennebar Rising, Part III: The Kozem King," estimated for March, 2018.
