---Here today from Stark House:
Blackwood, Algernon JULIUS LE VALLON & the exciting sequel THE BRIGHT MESSENGER, Stark House, 6/05, (two complete novels; Mike Ashley intro), new 19.95---Discount: 20%.
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.

ETERNITY LOST: The Collected Stories of..., Volume 1, Darkside '04, one of 520 numbered copies, (Pelan intro; Stephensen-Payne story notes), new in dj 45.00---It was starting to look like I might go through the whole week without any new-book arrivals. Seems I have been getting enough of a charge from the rediscovery of books being brought up from the cellar for their covershot closeups, which project I continue with off and on, although the heat/humidity here now prevent me from doing as much as I might otherwise, since I like to take the shots in our solarium with its ample natural light, but where these days now it is mostly a place more for sweat induction than anything else.
