Hi again folks:

Here are some more titles, interesting because in several cases they represent a good selection from an authors published works. Please look at the preliminary comments re book condition, grading and shipping in my GF first list, here: http://geniimagazine.com/forum/cgi-bin/ ... 4;t=006039

Thanks for a good response to my prior listing. There is yet more to come!
