HERE’S WHAT’S IN PRINT OR eVAILABLE…

For each of the listed titles, you’ll find links to retailers, where you’ll be able to find eBooks as well as bound-and-printed books.

Many books are available in audio, narrated by some of the industry’s outstanding voice artists. (Or, in a couple of instances, by The Author Himself.) If you want to purchase a physical audiobook, in cassette or CD form, the Amazon and B&N links will get you there; if you want to download an audiobook, links to audible.com listings are included where available.

If it’s not here, it’s out of print…but that doesn’t mean you won’t be able to find it. The first place to check is LB’s eBay store; he’s accumulated great quantities of his own works over the years, and now it’s time to share them with the world. Everything we sell in LB’s Bookstore is autographed, and the stock changes constantly, as many one-of-a-kind items come and go.

If you subscribe to his newsletter (that box over there > will get you on the list) you’ll stay informed about new additions (and editions) and special bargain prices.)

If we don’t have it, there are other places to look for it. Bookhunting used to be challenging, but several internet sites make it relatively simple. Alibris is one of the best.
