The Groundhog saw his (or her) shadow and that means six more weeks of winter.  Unfortunately for Californians, this winter has so far been a real bust. No rain at all in January and February is looking rather warmish and not too rainy.

On the other hand, the lack of rain gives me a chance to get more work done in the new storage unit -- which was a compromise as I couldn't FIT all the boxes of books in my own garage.
I've got lots to keep me busy, and that means a whole bunch of new material coming to the website as soon as I can get it there.

If you have an interest in any specific areas of interest, please feel free to email me and I'll see what's in the boxes for you!


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