Maybe I got sick of disappointing people. Maybe I grew tired of apologizing.

Or could be it’s just pure and simple greed. Always hard to rule that out…

Whatever it is, we’re now taking and filling orders from anywhere on the planet. We ship international orders by USPS Priority Mail, and the costs aren’t low, and there are time-consuming forms for us to fill out. But if you’ve got the money, honey, we’ve got the time.

All of this is a result of our closing the old website store and opening anew on eBay, where LB’s Bookstore is better equipped than ever to serve you. The new store gives us a flexibility we never had at our old website location, and we’ve responded by adding items every day. At last count, we had 91 different books for sale. We put After Hours: Conversations with Lawrence Block on special for $4.99 and sold 22 copies at last count. We’ve included quite a few books where our stock is only one or two copies—anthologies with one of my stories, collections for which I wrote an introduction. Most are priced low, and when they’re gone, they’re gone.

The three new Scudder trade paperbacks are available individually—or as a set with a special price of $49.99 postpaid. There’s no end of hardcover first editions featuring Matthew Scudder, Bernie Rhodenbarr, Evan Tanner, and a chap named Keller. And, yes, they’re all signed. If LB wrote it and LB’s selling it, LB can damn well sign it.

(The genuinely rare stuff, the manuscripts and high-ticket firsts, will be offered up at auction from time to time. There’s nothing on offer right now, but when there is, you’ll find it in the eBay store, along with the fixed-price items.)

The stock is ever-changing, and there are two ways to find what you want. The most obvious is to go straight to the eBay store and browse, but you might find it a good deal simple to visit the LB’s Bookstore page on my WordPress blog, where everything’s listed in some semblance of order, and it’s easy to see at a glance just what’s on offer and how it’s priced. Each book listed has a link that’ll take you right to the eBay listing.

Click click click. What a world, huh?

And whatever portion of it you inhabit, we’ve got books for you…
