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.

10/30/03 THU:
---Here from PGW:
Ashley, Mike (ed) THE MAMMOTH BOOK OF LOCKED-ROOM MYSTERIES AND IMPOSSIBLE CRIMES, Carroll & Graf '00, (J.D. Carr, Hoch, Pronzini, Block, etc.; 532 pages), new 11.95
---This is technically maybe a re-arrival. The last copy I had was listed as used.

Moorcock, Michael THE LIVES AND TIMES OF JERRY CORNELIUS: Stories of the Comic Apocalypse, Four Walls Eight Windows, 9/03, (adds new intro by author), new 15.00

Sturgeon, Theodore AND NOW THE NEWS…: Volume IX: The Complete Stories of…, North Atlantic '03, 1st, (Foreword by David G. Hartwell), new in dj 35.00
---It doesn’t look like there is a link to info about the book at the publisher’s website at the present moment, but there are links to the other volumes available (that I probably still have too).

---From Sarob Press:
Maynard, L.H. & M.P.N. Sims THE SEMINAR, Sarob Press, 9/03, 1st, (weird horror story; 116 pp), new in dj 37.50

---And this back in stock, although it is OP (the publisher happened across an extra copy just when I belatedly tried to re-order it; I guess he thought my timing meant that I was supposed to get it):
Gift, Theo NOT FOR THE NIGHT-TIME, Sarob Press, 8/00, (Dalby intro), new in dj 32.00
---and at somewhat lower a price than what I had it listed at earlier ($39.95). But only this one copy here to sell.
