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.

02/06/07 TUE:
---Word from Tartarus:
Dear Chris,

In the next couple of days we expect delivery of The Secret of the Sangraal and Other Writings by Arthur Machen. This non-fiction collection is technically-speaking a second edition (the first was published in 1995, ie 12 years ago.) Added to the original collection of obscure and uncollected writings by Machen is the elusive Dog and Duck (1924) collection of essays. It is uniform with our other volumes of Machen, Tales of Horror and the Supernatural, Ritual and Other Stories and the recently reprinted The Hill of Dreams. Please do let me know how many copies you might like.

All best wishes,
