50% off ALL BOOKS til the end of April!

In past years, I had a tradition of doing a general sale on all books in April, and again towards the end of the year (October or November) -- it's been a few years since I did this and I think it's time to bring the tradition back. So.... from now until April 30th, all books on the website are 50% off if you use the coupon code: BIGSALE.   Email me if you have more than a few books so I can re-figure postage for you. 

The April newsletter is available NOW:

The Sacramento Book Fair went splendidly.  The next scheduled book fair isn't until September for me, unless I decide that I'd like to haul my van over the Rockies and exhibit at the Rocky Mountain Book Fair in Denver, CO in August.  I'm still considering it, but it is a long way to go, and my van....well... I'm not sure how much it could take fully packed and on a steep slope.   I'll let you know if I sign on to any other book fairs before September. '

I'm continuing to add to my non-fiction stock relating to the subjects of Chemistry, Science, Nuclear and Atomic energy / warfare, Computers and History of Computers and Aeronautics and Astronautics. Some of these books are absolutely fascinating!


I do appraisals of books -- if you have an interest in having a book appraised, please let me know.
