    I think that's way, way high.

    Not really, but will be curious to see how such a sale goes, so please keep us posted. I have all three sets, matching number for all three, and I've been curious what such a thing might go for.

    My advice would be to price at $30 a volume and add a Best Offer option (if doing eBay...OBO if private). Yes, there are some volumes in there that go for significantly more (Hill, Gaiman, etc.), but there are also some that I've seen struggle to sell on eBay for $20. Averaging out to $30 seems a reasonable place to start...let's face, that means $1350 for a set of books that don't come with the most sterling of reputations in the community..even $1350 could be a hard sell. If you have the slipcases, maybe $35, but I still think that's pushing it, and I don't think the matching number probably adds a great deal to the bottom line...just makes it more attractive to begin with, to attract interest. Realistically, if you're able to get an even $1000 for the set (which works out to $22.22 each), that's probably not a bad deal.

    Or I could be way off.

    Keep us posted...as I said, I'll be interested for future reference for my own set. Good luck!

    EDIT: On reflection, I don't know, maybe I was a bit too conservative. Maybe such a set *would* be a player at $1500, which would be $33.33/ea. That might be a better opening gambit.

    Just a heads up--the Blake Crouch Little Book is available for payment for those who pre-ordered.

    I received my pre-order notification from Borderlands for the Blake Crouch LITTLE BOOK on August 10. It says, "You will be prompted for payment for your order when your pre-order is released on September 12, 2020."

    Hope that helps.

    Not bad then.

    Glad to hear you did ok, Keith. What was your starting point for the auctions?

    Well, all my eBay auctions have finished and everything's been shipped so now I am officially sans Little Books. On the positive note for Little Book collectors, the market is still viable for these editions as a good chunk of the titles went for issue price or slightly more. There was more than a few that went for less, but I expected that to be the case on an auction-style format. The heavy hitter was the Joe Hill book that went for $142.50, though the Malerman ($74.14) and the Ligotti ($58) did okay for themselves as well. Overall, before fees I was in the black for the series. After fees, slightly in the red.

    Though I'm glad I'm not on the Little Books train anymore, I'm kinda bummed for the upcoming Peter Straub set. I was really looking forward to this, even trying to see if I could scrape together the dough for the lettered editions, but with these issues I'm too wary to pull the trigger.
