    They are running and their trackers are getting closer.  They can't let them have the baby.  The father runs and throws the blanket off the cliff into the raging river below.  The trackers are very sorry they lost the main prize, but they take them into custody.  Only the mother knows what really happened to the child...The publisher sent me a copy of this book to read for review (thank you).  It has been published so you can buy a copy now.This book sets the pace for the new series.  You learn about the hidden world as well as the Read More

    A Collector's Guide to Andrew Lang

    Fri, 23 Jun 2017 08:00:00 Permalink
    To collect Andrew Lang is to be something of a masochist. What else can be said about a man who left his name on over 175 books? Reflecting his encompassing tastes, Lang’s final output ranges from scholarship to poetry, fiction, collaborations, compilations, translations, and beyond. One does not need to be a completist to collect Andrew Lang (if such a goal is even possible), but it does help to have an idea of the author’s rich and vast oeuvre before diving in. Read More

    Wed, 14 Jun 2017 10:04:40 Permalink
    “It’s a matter of taking the side of the weak against the strong, something the best people have always done.” Some people seem born destined for greatness, rather than mediocrity. The Beecher family was absolutely full of those with steadfast beliefs and causes – people born to preach from pulpits and lead movements. Harriet Elizabeth […] Read More

    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
