Hi all,

#1 is gone, the rest are $8, with the exception of the Scotty York book, which is $5. The shipping remains the same, unless you would prefer media mail, which would probable be between a buck and a half to two dollars.

Thanks,

Bob

Can you believe a nut like Sadowitz would name his own book "Card [censored]"? Breese thought he was being clever when he put it out with the title "Cards Hit."

And I cannot believe that someone who just had a baby daughter would publish Sexy Magic.
