    that's what I was worried about. Ah well, simple enough fix I suppose. Thanks, Dan!

    I have that one marked down for my next Camelot order...really looking forward to it. If anything, it sounds perhaps even better than some of the bookish titles that Mark Valentine has released through Tartarus, and that’s saying something.

    I’ve just read R.B. Russell’s Past Lives of Old Books, an Essay contained in his recent book also entitled, The Past Lives of Books and other Essays published by Tartarus Press. In it, Russell discusses his fondness for a particular set of Arthur Machen books that were gifted to him many years ago. These books aren’t pristine collectables, rather they are old, world weary discarded library books, published sometime in the 1920s. His Essay brought to mind a number of ex-library books that I have in my collection. My First Chapter book, Dan Morgan, Riflemen, A less than perfect copy of Richard Matheson’s Bid Time Return, from the Peninsula Community Library, Ray Bradbury’s October Country, 1st edition, from an unknown US Air Force library, unclipped dust Jacket showing a $3.50, Amazing condition! Lots of Reference titles that I could never afford in a perfect state. One of my favorites, Alvin J. Schmidt’s Fraternal Organizations, basically a history of American Lodge work. I’ve always been glad I have room for the interesting imperfect in my collection. These Tartarus titles that focus on books and collecting are fantastic. They’re very affordable and insightful.
