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.

---Discount on Night Shade--all editions--still 25%. I am listing the trade editions of the Williams and Cook titles even though I currently only have the ltd. in stock, expecting I could get them quickly enough. It doesn’t look like I will be getting their Clark Ashton Smith series--just as well if they have that silver flake like the Hodgsons. It gets all over the place.
---I notice that the CAS series from Night Shade is available at Amazon. Here are links:
The Collected Fantasies Of Clark Ashton Smith Volume 1: The End Of The Story and The Collected Fantasies Of Clark Ashton Smith Volume 2: The Door To Saturn

---Email from Amy--she made it to Belgium and was trying to stay awake until the local bedtime. Now I will see if I can handle eleven days of unremiting solitude. Enough things on my to-do list certainly to keep me busy and out of trouble.
