Mainly of interest to collectors
I've given the newsletter subscribers* 90 days with the new catalog, so now it's everyone else's turn.
For those of you who don't know but do care**, I sell signed first editions (and foreign editions and other editions as well) from my stock of author copies, and given that I don't go out to bookstore or convention events much anymore, this is probably your surest way to get a signed copy. I'm actually out of many older and more obscure titles, so I may not be able to help, but it's worth a try if , say, you are having trouble completing a signed set of first editions of the Giraut books.
The catalog is just a reasonably cleanly formatted list of what I've got and what I charge to sign one and ship it to you, plus a few odd bits of memorabilia and other things that a fan might like but is just gathering dust with me. (Or would be if I didn't keep them in clean, tight storage boxes in a cool, dry storage space).
I should add that although my prices are somewhere just a bit below that of a new book (sometimes a bit higher or lower due to scarcity or abundance), if all you really want to do is read it, once you figure in shipping, it's almost always cheaper to just get a used one from any of the many fine places that sell them.
But ... if you're a collector ... and especially if you want a signed first, possibly a personalized signed first -- then use the email link and just tell me you'd like a catalogue. And off it shall fly to you, for your perusal and my delight, for it contains instructions both for obtaining the books, and sending me money.
Next post up will be much less commercial ... sorry for the interruption of brief low commercialism in the high falutin' intellectuable*** tone hereabouts. I shall falute upwards again soon.
*Want to be one? I might send out another newsletter sometime, really! Just drop me a note and ask to be added to the mailing list.
**all other permutations are loved but I'm not talking to you right now.
***Why, yes, I did read Pogo obsessively when I was a child. How did you know?
