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 Centipede:
Hello everyone,

Just to keep you informed on the status of the Artists
Inspired by H.P. Lovecraft book. This book is still waiting
for several key essays on artists, as well as the Harlan
Ellison introduction. We hope to have the book in the hands
of the printer by the first week of September, and then back
to the States by the end of February, after which copies
will be shipping.

Please let us know if this presents any difficulties with
those of you who have pre-ordered. We sincerely apologize
for any inconvenience that this delay is causing. On the
other hand, because of the delay, we have managed to secure
another work by Bob Eggleton, and a previously unpublished
work by Michael Whelan, as well as one by Lee Brown Coye,
and some other goodies as well.

The edition information is now set to:
850 copies in slipcase, $395
150 copies with extra prints in traycase, numbered, $395
50 copies with extra prints in traycase, leatherbound,
signed by most living contributors, $2,000

Thank you again for your patience and support.

Best Regards,

Jerad Walters
Centipede Press
---If anyone wants to get this through me, let me know. I can let you know what discount I might be able to swing. Pretty good deal the 150-copy edition same price as the 850--maybe a misprint. I'm sure the Harlan Ellison intro will be in their hands, well, one of these days--only a matter of time.
