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.

---Email rec’d:
Was pulling together my book collection recently and your booklets (bought several Lafferty items from you in the mid 80s) surfaced. Glad to see you still in the saddle and, I assume, doing well. I notice your last postings (using Google) were in 1999; could not find an official web site. Best of luck and if you have an e-mail "mailing list", please put me on it.

---My reply:
Good to hear from you. I need to do something about that abandoned AOL site. I've forgotten how to do the uploads! Lately I have been using blogspot--that works a lot better for me than trying to maintain a regular website. I also am slowly putting my inventory on and have a data CDR I can send with my complete catalog on it in various formats.
I have added you to my emailing list, which I have not sent anything to in a very long while--a situation I hope to rectify soon.
