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 Endeavor Press:
I'm writing to let you know that I have less than 35 copies left of the
Bram Stoker Award-nominated novelette "F**kin' Lie Down Already" by Tom
Piccirilli. This is a signed, numbered, hardcover edition limited to
only 200 copies, with cover art and seven interior illustrations by the
up and coming artist, Caniglia. Once these few remaining copies are
sold, the book will be officially out of print.

F**kin' Lie Down Already (ISBN 0-9728656-1-6) has a retail cover price
of $45.00 and has recently been reviewed in several magazines, including
Asimov's SF.

"Tom Piccirilli's abrasively yet intriguingly titled 'F**kin' Lie Down
Already' does not feature any supernatural events, yet it's over-the-top
subject matter is presented so outrageously that it enters the realm of
the unreal. A New York cop named Clay arrives home one day to find his
family murdered. Gut-shot by the lurking killer, the bleeding Clay
recovers enough to load the corpses of his son and wife into his car and
set out for revenge. Never mind the emergency room, he has a thug and
his boss to bring to justice. Like a James Crumley tale filtered through
Robert Bloch's sensibilities, this novella (in a signed, limited
edition) is a nourish hellbound train."

-- Paul Di Filippo, in Asimov's SF
