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 Dark Regions

I don't recall particularly canceling my standing order, but I may have sent back a few that were more than I needed that I had received in the standing order I had, but I am pleased to hear that Joe Morey and Dark Regions are still extant:
Hi Chris,

I was hoping you would be interested in carrying Dark Regions books again. This year we have published many interesting genre books. Please take a look at our website: And, thanks for carrying out books in the past.
---I would be very pleased to pick up some of the missing pieces, but I won't do it unless I hear of some interest for me to do so.
