    Book Spotlight: Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury

    Thu, 22 Aug 2019 08:00:00 Permalink
    Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451 has become a cultural phenomenon since its publication in October of 1953. Many adaptations, from film and theater to computer games and comics, have kept cultural references to the novel consistent and relevant, despite over 50 years having passed since publication. A common inclusion in school curriculum, the novel captures the imaginations of readers, forcing them to compare the society presented in the pages to the society of reality. Read More

    Adios… for now

    Mon, 08 Jul 2019 11:30:43 Permalink
    I started Bookman’s Log back in 2010 on my little Toshiba netbook (evolutionary forerunner of the tablet). The idea was that I could take it anywhere and record my adventures as a bookman and, occasionally as a writer. In fact, I think some of the early blog entries came from the place up in the Canadian woods where I do my writing. Originally, I was inspired by the idea that the blog might gain readers in the trade and among the cohort of people who collect the kind of stuff I sell.

    Tue, 14 Mar 2017 08:31:33 Permalink
    It’s been a busy month, but we’ve now returned from New York, and things should be back to normal by the end of the week.This year we decided to do both California book fairs and follow those up with the two New York satellite-shadow shows.  Gail and I couldn’t be more pleased with the results; we sold well into the low five figures at each of the first three book fairs and did very well in the fourth. For the first time in a long time, customers--to include average collectors--weren’t timid when it came to buying.  What did they buy?  Well, Read More
