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.

"Editor Sean Wallace has stated that the first issue of Fantasy Magazine would be packed full, and that was not a joke. With no less than fifteen stories, this magazine is offering more fiction than many anthologies. And the roster of authors is full of seasoned professionals as well as talented newcomers."—Tangent Online

"Edited by Sean Wallace, Fantasy Magazine is one of the most promising new fiction publications to launch in the field in years. Oriented towards the stylish experimental fantasists and surrealists who make up a substantial part of Wallace's Prime Books stable, FM musters a superb line-up in its inaugural, November 2005 issue."—Locus
