Hey, LOC Script Did Catch It!

That’s #11 in the Duncan Maclain series.  It, and #12, were not renewed.  Source for a TV detective called “Longstreet”–never seen the show, but other people have, cuz the books are pricey! It broke up the monotony. So, enjoy, but … Continue reading

Windwalker Price Cut!

$1.99!!! He’ll perhaps be our bellwether again.  Or no.  Guy has a printed version, for god’s sakes. In related news–end of the month, fat and happy with Kindle ACH deposits–there is, in fact, one thing Amazon is doing wrong: Yes, … Continue reading

Sargasso Manuscript Arrives

Typical Avon bookleg (mebbe, they did that a few other times in the late ’50s, early ’60s). Let’s see, tearing, small font, text sometimes crooked, interior page margins of as little as 1/10th of an inch. Oh, it’s gonna be … Continue reading

Damn, Iris Owens Died

Wrote a book, Apres Claude, to a measure of acclaim in the early ’70s.  She was better known as Harriet Daimler, one of the original Olympia authors, and the only Merlinois Girodias ever asked to “tone it down.” (The lady … Continue reading
