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.

02/27/05 SUN:
---Worked on long-delayed further upload to listings, bringing to it everything in the alphabet from Mic- to She- (plus Tor mmpbs). The misc. softcovers starting with Sci- (all those magazines) were a bit daunting of a task, but when I finally got around to tackling it (whilst not-watching the Kansas-Oklahoma State basketball game--should have done the same with Oscar Awards telecast), it went fairly well and not as time-consuming as I expected, leaving plenty of the rest of the day to actually goof off. I am sure there are tons of errors, but I think I caught plenty of them. When I finally get the entire catalog up there, maybe I can embellish with further information beyond the laconic of what had been composed for page-conserving print catalogs.
