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 Darkside/Midnight House:

WELCOME to our first update in quite some time. There's a good deal of news. As many of you know, we moved from Seattle to Albuquerque in April. The move itself cost over $10K, and put us woefully behind on our schedule. However, we haven't been idle, in the last two months we've landed some major deals (which I'll cover in more detail later on).

Web site:

Joseph Payne Brennan!!! At long last we have come to terms with the Brennan estate and will be doing a four-volume set of all his non-Lucius Leffing weird tales under the editorship of Stefan Dziemianowicz and myself. The books will be in a matching format (like our Clifford D. Simak set) and will retail at $45.00 each.
