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.

Introduced by William P. Simmons. Cover Art by Gerald Gaubert.
Len Maynard & Mick Sims have written and edited more than 40 books in the supernatural genre, as well as having numerous stories published in a variety of anthologies and magazines. Active Horror Writers Association members, their collections, Shadows At Midnight, 1979 and 1999 (published by Sarob Press in a revised and enlarged version), and Echoes Of Darkness, 2000 (Sarob Press), were followed in 2002 by their third collection, Incantations, and two retrospective collections of their stories, essays and interviews, The Secret Geography Of Nightmare and Selling Dark Miracles, one introduced by Hugh Lamb and the other by Stephen Jones. This latest collection, Falling Into Heaven (introduced by William P. Simmons), contains their most recent stories, most of which are original to this collection. Novellas, Moths, The Hidden Language Of Demons and The Seminar, were published in 2001, 2002 and 2003 respectively. They worked as editors on Darkness Rising, and as editors/publishers they ran Enigmatic Press in the UK, which produced Enigmatic Tales, and its sister titles. They have in the past written essays, and reviews, but currently they are concentrating on writing horror, young adult and thriller novels, as well as a few short stories.
