My sister was given a box of books that had been sitting for years.
It appeared that they hadn't been disturbed in years.
Among the paperbacks were the following:
Hell's Angels Hunter S. Thompson 1st ed
The Other Side of Time Keith Laumer 1st
Sos the Rope Piers Anthony 1st
The Zap Gun PKD 1st
Now Wait for Last Year PKD 1st
The Blue World Jack Vance 1st
All very good.
Do any of these interest you? I also need to get rid of a few books of my own.
I have duplicates of several Powers, Wolfe, Crowley and others. Some of
which are "highly collectible." Like a Subterranean Declare, and UK firsts of
Earthquake Weather, The Anubis Gates (Chatto and Windus pb) and many
Looks like some good books. I’ll run them in my blog and see if anyone reacts. I do have consignment information (contained on my catalog data CD-R in the new arrivals etc file), if you want to go the route. But I am still way way way behind in getting the used books catalogued that I have already been sent. Lately I’ve been making positive moves to redress the imbalance that had been occurring between keeping up with new books coming in and adding used books to my listings. The pendulum seems to be swinging more toward the used books. Plus my having other places to do the cataloguing than my perennially way overcluttered cellar office and the novelty-effect of being able to make JPEG snapshots of book covers is inducing me to take on more of those used books that have been in hiding.---Note to Stephen King bibliographers: article in New York Times Baseball Preview 2005 (Sunday, Apr 3) “It’s Weird But True.
