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.

04/27/04 TUE:
---Have had a request for a book from Medium Rare:
ISBN: 0972915710
Edward Lee,
Wrath James White

Teratologist: A billionaire obsessed with the idea of offending God so extremely in order for God to confront him abducts the most grievously genetically deformed people he can find. Then he sets out and kidnaps priests and nuns forcing them to have sex with the deformed. Photographs of the sex-acts are sent to newspapers, the internet becomes flooded with these images; a church-damning scandal ensues. It's some of the most distasteful erotic horror ever written.

---I have asked the publisher for ordering info, but am not sure I want an answer.

---Disc Log:
- Orchestra Baobab SPECIALIST IN ALL STYLES (Xgau: A)
- The Gil Evans Orchestra OUT OF THE COOL
