After quite a while resting on my more or less laurels (past listings) it's time to get a move on and put up some more listings. My goal is five books every day from now on. This should be achievable, but not according to my past performance.

These books get listed in three places: on Amazon, Biblio, and Half. Books without ISBNs (older books) generally will not be listed on half. My prices might vary between these three places. Amazon and Half tell me competing prices, so I peg mine on them. Thus, if the lowest price for Deadly Percheron is $98 on Amazon, I might peg mine at $95. If it weren't my only copy maybe I'd be more reasonable. In fact, I think my Biblio listing is more reasonable.

Going forward (and possibly backward), links to titles of books will send you to the main Amazon listing. My listing will be somewhere amidst the other maybe 237 listings. This is where my photo of the book can be seen, which will probably be a better one than the one Amazon features. Half doesn't let me attach my own photo—at least I don't think it does. Photos are also at biblio. Lots of older listings still don't have photos. Nor updated prices.

I've been lousy at selling direct via email. Sorry about that, if you've tried me. Listing through the major portals keeps me honest—also prompt and reliable.

---I can’t find a publisher’s website to set up a link for this, but it is blurbed as the quintessence of some ofthe most inspired creativity you will find anywhere in the world of supernatural fiction:
Blackwood, Algernon PAN'S GARDEN: A Volume of Nature Stories, Stark House, 4/03, (orig: 1912; Mike Ashley intro), new 17.95

---I meant to only run 9.5 miles but a couple quarter-mile markers were missing so I ended up going 10.5 miles. Slowed down considerably toward the end but made it in probably at least a speed-walk pace.

---Music played (if not listened to):
- James Moody/George Walllington THE BEGINNING AND END OF BOP (Blue Note Jazz Classics) - one of my many cutout vinyl LPs from way back when; this has a notched corner. I wish I had another shot at picking up some of these now, especially at the price I paid then.
- Sonny Rollins KEN BURNS JAZZ (Xgau: A Plus)
- Afrika Bambaataa LOOKING FOR THE PERFECT BEAT 1980-1985 (Xgau: A Minus)
- STABAT MATER: Late medieval Motets of Penitence and Passion
- Peter Garland THE DAYS RUN AWAY (Tzadik)
- Synaesthesia DEATH AMBIENT
- Le Tigre FROM THE DESK OF MR. LADY (Xgau: B Plus)
