Looking for somewhat recent, first quality, publisher editions at really low prices? Check out Edward R. Hamilton Booksellers, Falls Village, CT 06031-5000 USA. They have a web presence at
Examples of what you can find there include the Writerís Digest Books: 1999 Poetry Marketplace (the current edition is over $20 and while a little old, most of the contacts in the 1999 book are somewhat valid) at $4.99 or "Strange Highways" by Dean Koontz published at $24 and selling through Hamilton for $4.95.
While Iím sure youíve seen a lot of these $4.95 and $3.95 books in the front of Borders and other book chains, no one has as comprehensive a collection of close-out titles as Hamilton. And their shipping charges are quite reasonable. You can buy a whole year of reading for $30!
They also publish and send out a newspaper size listing of their books to regular customers.
