    That's a good plan too.

    I remember in high school, I got two prints framed by a local artist and I don't remember it being very expensive. Of course, this was a long time ago too, but to afford them both on my meager earnings from working 1-2 hours a day at Radio Shack, it couldn't have been very much.

    Picked up a couple of books this weekend, courtesy of a gift card my daughters gave me for Christmas:

    In the Portland area there are a couple of independent framers who run specials on Groupon pretty regularly. You may want to check that to see if there are any offers in your area.

    This is a rare early-number example...later numbers had a different design:

    In a gated community surrounded by armed men in towers and a moat filled with crocodiles.

    You'll be fine. Up here in the Northwest the crocodiles are pretty lethargic. Probably because the water is too cold.

    Side story. My brother in-law used to live in McMinnville Oregon down the road from the chairman of Evergreen Aviation. Evergreen Aviation was a McMinnville based CIA front company. They evacuated the Shah of Iran and lost a plan while running drugs for the CIA in Central America. The owner had lions on his property. We could hear them roar from his backyard.

    After I picked up the Fantastic Fictioneers I decided to add to my reference collection. This is a great resource and the entries are extremely detailed and informative. The selected Bibliographies are chock full of interesting suggestions. These books are older 1985, but they are full of meaningful historical information. And they’re cheap since they are X-Library books, however since they were reference books and didn’t circulate, they are in great shape. I paid $7.00 for this set including shipping. I found a couple of other interesting sets and will post them as they arrive.

    That’s a hell of a deal, and I’m very envious. I’ve been wanting these books for as long as I can remember. I wanted them for so long, in fact, that I had kind of forgotten about them. You’ve inspired me to start searching for them again. Again, congrats, that’s a fantastic find.

    Ron There's a lot more of these titles available with libraries ridiculously selling off their Reference Collections. Companies like Thriftbooks are swooping in and buying entire collections for pennies, selling them for just a few dollars and making a profit. I have picked a few great reference works supper cheap. I'm sure you'll have no problem snapping something good up.

    That’s encouraging. I gave up a decade or so ago when prices for the two decades previous stayed relatively static at hundreds of dollars.

    I believe they have made a few adaptations. American Made is another.

    Wow! That's a helluva deal.

    E.F.'s son Richard and I co-authored the Robert McCammon essay in the followup reference books edited by Richard.
