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.

---Word from Ash-Tree:
We're pleased to announce that the new Ash-Tree Press anthology, AT EASE WITH THE DEAD, is now available, in both hardback and paperback editions. Full details will be found in the attached PDF file. This time around we have thirty new stories, some from regular contributors, many from first-timers with Ash-Tree. We're very encouraged that an early review - at the Horror World website ( ) - is extremely enthusiastic.

The next title to become available will be THE ATTIC EXPRESS AND OTHER MACABRE STORIES by Alex Hamilton, which collects together a number of stories from earlier collections of Alex's (BEAM OF MALICE, FLIES ON THE WALL, and THE CHRISTMAS PUDDING THAT SHOOK THE WORLD), and also includes a brand new story, 'Night Mare', which Alex has written specially for the Ash-Tree collection.

We'll be following that with a new edition of Francis Brett Young's chilling novel, COLD HARBOUR, which is almost ready to go to print; and after that will come the first volume in our series THE COLLECTED SHORT FICTION OF HENRY S. WHITEHEAD. The first volume is titled PASSING OF A GOD AND OTHER STORIES.
