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.

10/30/06 MON:
---Here today from Spectre Library:
Rousseau, Victor THE SURGEON OF SOULS, Spectre Library '06, one of 200 numbered copies, (complete series of stories featuring Ivan Brodsky, the Surgeon of Souls, eleven of which ran in Weird Tales in 1926 and 1927; one of the pioneering works of the psychic detective; scholarly Mike Ashley intro; 170 pages), new in dj 40.00
---Can’t find a website for Spectre Library yet, but for listings from a couple other bookseller sites you can check out Shocklines or Clarkesworld--a couple places with a lot slicker operations and more comprehensive selections than me, but whose prices I probably beat.
