CLEANING HOUSE (WANT A TROIKA?)
Further Update: I've found about 15 Leviathan 2 copies I can part with. Lev2 which features Richard Calder (an excerpt from Franzetta), Rhys Hughes' rather incredible novella "The Darktree Wheel," which is available nowhere else, a wonderful L. Timmel Duchamp story, and Stepan Chapman's classic "Minutes of the Last Meeting". Along with interviews with all four. At the time, it was the first interview ever for Hughes and for Duchamp. Oh yes--and an introduction by David Pringle. Anyway, if you want one of these, paypal me $10 at firstname.lastname@example.org (for North America shipment--otherwise, email me first). They're first editions. I'll sign 'em if it makes a difference.
Well, in addition to everything else, we've been trying to clean up the house. Specifically, that means getting rid of books or putting them in storage. We've got something like 20,000 to 25,000 books and it's beginning to be a bit much. Every day new ones come in that we've ordered or not ordered (review copies). So Ann's put some up for sale on Amazon.com. And we're donating some to Good Will. But there are others that I might just offer for sale through this blog, if anyone is interested.
One thing I can tell you is that I've got 25 copies of the second edition of the Troika by Stepan Chapman (Philip K. Dick Award winning novel from the Ministry of Whimsy), and I don't want to hold onto all of them. (I might even have a box of first editions, too--I'll have to check.) If you're in North America, it's $13 postpaid per copy. If you live anywhere else in the world, drop me a line at email@example.com first re cost. Paypal only, unless you want to send a check. But paypal preferred.
Update: Just to clarify, if I do have any firsts of Troika for sale, they'll be $20 postpaid. Still reasonable, I think.
