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.

09/09/04 THU:
---Word from Tartarus:
Dear Chris,

We are today receiving from the printers copies of our paperback reprint of The White Hands by Mark Samuels. It is a bit of a departure for us, being a paperback, but as it received such critical acclaim, sold out nice and quick, and is up for a couple of British Fantasy Awards we thought we'd try a different format.

However, as it is a reprint I thought I'd check to see how many you might want, rather than sending your standing order?

All best wishes,


---I’m not sure if I have completely sold my copies yet. If not, I’m sure there are no more than one or two. Probably ought to get this edition, but not sure I should go for the full complement. People with standing orders with me will already have the hardcover.
