MASSIVE BOOK SALE--REDUX (with new items)

Ann and I are still cleaning out the house and getting rid of more books. Below find some new stuff and a consolidation of the remaining original stuff. The original stuff that’s left has been marked down in most cases.

Terms are as follows: payment by paypal to or check or money order made out to me sent to POB 4248, Tallahassee, FL 32315. Shipping in the US (media mail)/Canada (surface) is free on orders $15 and over. Otherwise, it depends on how much you order, how we’re shipping it, and where we’re shipping it. Just email us about what you want to buy at and we’ll let you know if the books you want are still available and the shipping cost.

All books should be in good-as-new condition (some haven’t been read) unless otherwise noted.



Ann is finally willing to part with her collection of horror mass market paperbacks. Many of these books are in new condition as she received multiple copies. Some are gently-read, but all are in good or better condition. Most are from the late 80’s and early 90’s during the boom of horror novels, so some could be quite rare. No mixing or matching of individual books. Each grab bag is $15, including shipping within the US/Canada. Bag 5 is all women. Bag 7 is nonfiction.

I just noticed your comments on Eugene Izzi. He had a tough guy life. I remember reading a big moody article after his death in something like Esquire or Vanity Fair. Here's a little bio of his:

I think that may have been Neddal Ayad who, as a guest blogger, mentioned Eugene. Or it could have been Iain Rowan. I'm going to email both of them to let them know about your comment.

Alot of interesting comments on this blog, I was searching for some doctor related info and some how cam across this site. I found it pretty cool, so I bookmarked. I'll really liked the second post on the front page, that got my attention.

My site is in a bit different area, but just as useful. I have a mens male enhancement reviews related site focusing on mens male enhancement reviews and mens health related topics.
