"The Tooth Fairy left the name DreamHaven Books
under my pillow. Usually it's a 25-cent piece;
but given the current value of the U.S. dollar,
the value of this tip was far more glorious.
DreamHaven is a book-seeker's cave of miracles."

- Harlan Ellison

I've just returned from two weeks in the UK where we took a vacation and also attended the World Science Fiction Convention in London.  Lisa and I had a grand time and I actually sold some books. I'll report more on the trip soon.  But I discovered late in the convention that one of my very good friends and long-time customer, William C. Martin had died in late June and I never heard about it until I read his name in the recent losses in the community at the convention.  Bill was a wonderful person and very passionate about books.  He called me every week or two to ask about new books and just chat for a bit.  I would see him at conventions when he was well enough to travel and he just loved perusing the dealer's rooms.  I remember once he was ...

I'm in the middle of one of the biggest lulls I've had in a long time.  I don't have any conventions, bookfairs, or other events until Lisa and I leave for the UK in August to take a week holiday and then attend the World Science Fiction convention in London.  I am selling at the WorldCon but it should be a lot of fun, nonetheless.

Last Sunday we finished the last event we had planned; William's combination Eagle Scout Court-of-Honor and Graduation Party.  They were both great successes.  Over 50 people attended the ceremony, which was just the right mix of serious and silly, and none too long.  He's an official Eagle Scout and has a letter from the President to prove it (I have mine from Richard Nixon somewhere around the house - ...
