I’ve recently bought the largest collection of quality books I’ve ever seen. 

Somewhere between 15 and 20 thousand books, many of which are signed. There are some spectacular titles which I’ve rarely, if ever, seen. I’ll be working them into the catalogs for many months to come. In the meantime, if you have wants, particularly Arkham House, Edgar Rice Burroughs, H. Rider Haggard, Edgar Wallace, Brian Lumley, Richard Matheson, Harlan Ellison, Ray Bradbury, Michael Moorcock, Orson Scott Card, ROBERT E HOWARD, and thousands of others, send me your lists. I can’t quote them on the phone – they’re not all in order and accessible yet – but I can keep your want lists on file and notify you when/if I find them.  

And speaking of Harlan Ellison, if you haven’t heard, Harlan passed away on June 27. HE was a friend of mine. Like many, we had our ups and downs but at the end of the day, we still were friends. I made a Facebook post which said “I can’t imagine a world without Harlan Ellison in it”. It’s true – I still think of things said, of stories told, of stories read, and without Harlan, well, it’s just not possible.

If he starts to turn to the north or south, his body stretches out across the landscape, and to rotate as far as north-north-east is every bit as impossible as accelerating to the speed of light.But when Seth and Theo join an expedition to the edge of the habitable zone, they discover a terrifying threat: a fissure in the surface of the world, so deep and wide that no one can perceive its limits.
