"The Tooth Fairy left the name DreamHaven Books
under my pillow. Usually it's a 25-cent piece;
but given the current value of the U.S. dollar,
the value of this tip was far more glorious.
DreamHaven is a book-seeker's cave of miracles."

- Harlan Ellison

So I might still have a chance to be "Coldhands"....

Sat, 17 Jan 2015 00:05:39 GMT

George R.R. Martin has shot down a favorite fan theory about the character "Coldhands" in his Song of Fire and Ice series.  

So I still have a chance at being this mysterious character who is possibly a man from the Wall.  George used my name as a character on the Wall on page 466 of the first book ("...but when Hake and Dywen tried to tie one(a dead body)  onto a horse, the animal went mad, screaming and rearing, lashing out with its hooves, even biting at Ketter when he ran to help."   Next, I email George with my suggestion.....

Counting Down.....and down.....and....

Another year gone by.  Where do they go?  It's all whirring by so fast.

I hope everyone has a safe New Year's Evening and a prosperous 2015.  I had hoped to make up the lost business from last Jan/Feb/Mar during the rest of 2014.  It was not meant to be.  So I'm optimistically looking to 2015 to make up the difference.  To that end, I will be having more sales to move more of my ever-increasing stock.  I've marked down a load of graphic novels and more comics, I've put out many new collectible paperbacks and I'm marking down a lot of the existing stock.  I'm marking many hardcovers down to only a buck.  Please buy my shiny books.

Happy New Year.
