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 spectre

Hello All !
The Spectre Library wishes to announce its prototype website. It is stripped down and easy to use.
No java, pop-ups, ads, etc. If anyone has any comments or suggestions, please feel free to forward
them to my attention for consideration.
Further footnote, our first book--The Surgeon of Souls, by Victor Rousseau--with a limitation of
strictly 200 numbered editions, is officially OUT OF STOCK. We will NOT be reissuing these, ever.
Our second title--The Tracer of Egos, by Victor Rousseau--is a collection of weird-reincarnation
tales with an element of fantasy to them. They too are restricted to 200 numbered editions, and
were recently released: September 2007.
