Default Near-free books!

I'm clearing my shelves of duplicates and randomly accumulated books. I've got a mix of genres, paperbacks, hardcovers, audiobooks. I'm going to list them in groups just to organize them by kind -- you are free to claim individual books or whole groups, whatever works for you.

They are available for the cost of postage + paypal fees (if you use paypal rather than check/money order), rounded up to the nearest dollar amount.

Pictures available upon request, and any other details you'd like to know.

Group One - SF Hardcovers

1. Analog 8, hardcover ex-library copy, some cover wear but now in mylar. contains stories by Colin Kapp, Robert Chilson, Dean McLaughlin, Harry Harison, William Earls, Joseph Wesley, Lawrence Perkins, RC Fitzpatrick, and Steve Chapman.

2. In Winter's Shadow by Gillian Bradshaw, bookclub hardcover, book in good shape but worn cover with a few tears.

3. Exile's Gate by CJ Cherryh, bookclub hardcover, some wear to dust cover.

4. Arafel's Saga by CJ Cherryh, bookclub hardcover, fairly worn dust cover.

5. The Faded Sun: Shon's Jir by CJ Cherryh, bookclub hardcover, some wear to dust cover, previous owners sticker inside.

Willow the move was so-so to me, the book was OK but it been a long time I've read it.

I haven't read a lot of the ones in that group. I do recommend Katherine Kurtz and Mary Stewart's books, but the ones I have are in the middle of series, not the place to start.

I'm about to disappear for a long weekend, when I get home I'll get your books packaged and weighed so I can tell you postage costs!

I will take the Marion Zimmer Bradley books if that's okay - 33 and 34. Also Number 9 - Asimov audio.

Could we do a swap in Denver?

Hi Cheryl!!! I am FINALLY back online, Cox shut me down for no D*mn good reason for the last week, but I am back now. I was wondering if you got a pm from me concerning my moneyorder for Hans and the money for you? Or if you have received them?I sent them out on monday, for a tuesday pick up and they are for the full amount for both of you. I called a friend and tried to navigate her through here to let you know, and I just wanted to be sure you did.

Sorry, I've been remiss in tracking my own topic.

Peter, shipping to the UK will be atrocious ($10 minimum I think), but since I'll be seeing KC in a few weeks, perhaps she'd be willing to take the book back and post it locally. If so I'll let you and her work out the payment for shipping amongst yourselves.

KC, let's do swap in Denver -- I love saving the postman the work and the profit!

Shalyn, I will PM you shortly with costs.

Ginny -- Did you want me to tell you expected postage for 1, 2, 6, 11, 13, 14, 15, and 18, or were you checking on money first? And was your post #14 about DragonQuintent a book you are offering for sale? If so it needs to be put in a new thread, not in the middle of this topic.
