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.

---Word from Night Shade:
“Hi all,

Lots of good stuff going on around here. We've just started shipping Zoran
Zivkovic's The Fourth Circle, and it's moving briskly.

In March, we've got three books for you:

We're reprinting The Ancient Track : The Collected Poetical Works of H.P.
Lovecraft, which has been out of print for about a year.

We're releasing the trade hardcover edition of Bubba Ho-Tep. The DVD will be
out in May, and we highly recommend you pick it up (the book and the DVD!).

And yes, finally, The House on the Borderland : The Collected Fiction of William
Hope Hodgson vol. 2 will be out the first week of March.

And in other shipping news, if you ordered a lettered edition of The Empress of
Mars, they have been shipped and are en route to you.

The third sig sheet for the Lambshead Disease Guide ltd has been turned in by
Alan Moore, and only three more signatures are needed to complete the fourth
sheet. So the limited will DEFINITELY be shipping in March.

The Ghost Pirates and Other Revenant of the Sea, the third of our Hodgson
volumes, is now available for order, and you can check out the table of contents
on our website. Due out in October.

And on a completely different note, Jeremy has been up here in Portland for the
weekend, and we have spent the entire weekend watching cool movies from the 70s.
We highly recommend that you check out a documentary called A Decade Under the
Influence, which is all about 70s independent cinema. Interviews with people
like Altman, Coppola, Scorsese, Robert Towne, Dennis Hopper, Eastwood,
Bogdonavich, etc. Two thumbs up.

That's about it for now,

Jason Williams

---Received an email order that required me to restart in OSX to read without all the gobbledygook. This meant a little fooling around with iTunes, causing me to come up with a new CD COMPILATION--#15. I played it while trying to get through watching the DVD of BIRTH OF A NATION from Netflix. The music provided with the silent movie I was not too smitten by, so I muted it and played my own. My new compilation played through okay. No great shakes, but I will probably enjoy hearing it now and again. Anyone else want any, I have fired off a few extras: as always, free for the asking. Now I need to get back to what I am supposed to be doing.
