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.

01/25/04 SUN:
---Word from Darkside Press about a book not here yet, but sounding like it might be soon:
“New book from Cleve Cartmill:
You're receiving this note because you've ordered Midnight House books in the past, and while this new collection by Cleve Cartmill is from our SF imprint, there is certainly enough fantasy/horror content that I thought you might find it of interest:
The name Cleve Cartmill is synonymous with the "Golden Age of Science Fiction". For over a decade beginning in 1941 Cartmill received equal billing with the more famous names of the era such as Heinlein, Simak, Hubbard, and de Camp. His novellas and novelettes were frequently the lead features of Astounding Science Fiction and Unknown Worlds. Best known today for the famous "atom bomb" story "Deadline", Cartmill's impressive oeuvre of fantasy and science fiction has appeared only sporadically in anthologies and with the exception of the paperback Space Scavenger, has never been collected in book form. This is the first of a projected five volume set that will collect all of Cleve Cartmill's fantastic fiction. From the fantasies such as "The Bargain" and "Age Cannot Wither" to the dystopian future shown in "With Flaming Swords", this collection presents a selection showcasing the range of this unjustly neglected master of fantastic fiction.”
