Just a short update to the book sale. We're adding a few items and didn't want them to get lost. Go to the original post for details on shipping costs, etc.

Er, and please don't think I'm turning this blog into a flea market. This madness will all end soon enough...

In no particular order, as if you were browsing through a particularly disorganized New Orleans bookstore...

Feeding the Glamour Hogs by Mark McLaughlin. I turned up four extra copies of this rare Ministry of Whimsy chapbook release. (Wish I'd find some more of Danger Music by Stepan Chapman, but no such luck.) Blurbed by Thomas Ligotti, among others. Short, sharp tales of horror and the surreal. $4.

Where Summer Ends by Karl Edward Wagner. Signed by the author. A Pulphouse mini-trade paperback short story. First edition in excellent condition. $35. (This price undercuts the current ABE prices for a signed first.)

Hiking Vancouver Island by Shannon and Lissa Cowan. A guide to Vancouver Island's Greatest Hiking Adventures. Up-to-date and helpful. We used it extensively during our recent vacation. Trade paper. A few pages dog-earred. Otherwise, good condition. $5.

The Mysteries of Harris Burdick by Chris Van Allsburg. This is lovely. We recently received an extra copy of this one and can't think of a good reason to hold onto it. One of Allsburg's mysterious picture books. In pristine condition. $10.

All His Engines: Hellblazer by Mike Carey and Leonardo Manco. An excellent installment in the John Constantine saga. In perfect condition. Hardcover. $15.

Cocksure by Mordecai Richler. New Canadian Library mass market paperback edition of the novel by the legendary Canadian writer. Love his work. $2.

Comic Epitaphs From the Very Best Old Graveyards. Hardcover. Small-sized. Delightful. Some scuffing. Good condition generally. Illustrated. From Peter Pauper Press.

John Collier and Fredric Brown Went Quarrelling Through My Head: Stories by Jessica Amanda Salmonson. An early collection, from Ganley, of the noted fantasist's work. Hardcover. $8.00.

Forbidden Lines. A North Carolina literary magazine, trade paper, with work by Frederik Pohl, John Kessel, and Joe Bob Briggs (?!) in it. $3.

The Book of Angels by Thomas E. Kennedy. A novel from the cult author of Unreal City, from Wordcraft of Oregon, the legendary surreal/magic realist publisher. Trade paper. Like new. $7.

Drive, Dive, Dance & Fight by Thomas E. Kennedy. A short story collection from the noted cult author. Like new. $5.

Eight Skilled Gentlemen by Barry Hughart. A wonderful novel in the Master Li and Number Ten Ox series. I'm only parting with it because I recently bought the omnibus of all three novels. Slightly worn exterior. Otherwise, fine. $7.

NOTE: The Evil Monkey Last Line Contest Ends Monday.
