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:
Please find attached details of the forthcoming first volume in a series of three that will collect all the known short fiction of Henry S. Whitehead. I'm sure we don't need to tell you that this is likely to prove popular.
We also want to let you know that at the beginning of December we shall have available the new collection by the increasingly popular British author, Reggie Oliver. Titled Masques of Satan: Twelve Tales and a Novella, this is a dynamic follow up to his previous volumes The Dreams of Cardinal Vittorini and The Complete Symphonies of Adolph Hitler. Neither of those collections had extensive distribution, but those who managed to obtain them have nothing but praise for Oliver's work, and, as a result of word getting around, reservations for this new collection are already piling up. Please make sure that you have enough on hand to meet the inevitable demand.
As always, thank you for your continuing support. Please let us know if you have any problems reading the attached file.
Christopher & Barbara

---Anyone wanting to see the above alluded-to attachment let me know and I will forward a copy.
