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.

new book arrivals from Tartarus

I've been mightily delinquent in a plenitude of ways, not least the posting of new-arrival listings here, scant as they have been. The listings do go up in my "New Arrivals" document, which should be searchable, but not necessarily through Google. I will try to do a little catch-up here now. To start with, books from Tartarus:
WORMWOOD: Literature of the fantastic, supernatural and decadent #12, spr/09, Tartarus, (on Harlan Ellison, Wilkie Collins, etc.), new 14.00

Strong, L.A.G. THE BUCKROSS RING and Other Stories of the Strange and Supernatural, Tartarus '09, one of 300 copies, (author's strange and supernatural stories are collected together in one volume for the first time here; Richard Dalby [ed & intro]), new in dj 50.00
and I forgot to list earlier:
Maupassant, Guy de TALES OF TERROR, Tartarus '08, one of 300 copies, (collects together 32 of Guy de Maupassant's best tales of terror, in Arnold Kellet's glitteringly clear and precise translations; Ramsey Campbell foreword), new in dj 50.00
(discount 15%)
