Crowds at Once Read Books $1.00 a book table next door.
Not a great show, but look to have made a very minimal a amount profit. Probably not as good as if had been open. But Alicia did manage to get a stack of books signed. Nothing by Bradbury unfortunately.
Forry Ackerman - not on the list but showed up anyway
Barbara Hambly - no show, pulled from list early
Karen Anderson - no show, heard she was unwell.
Tony Gleeson - no show, pulled from list early
Peter Beagle - caught him early
William Nolan - a long line but he was doing lots of sketching
Earl Kemp - missed him
Donald Glut - no show - and had a lot for him for once
George Clayton Johnson - missed his signing, but caught him later
Arthur Byron Cover - missed his signing
Ray Bradbury - Huge slow line, 2 PBs only.
Frederik Pohl - no show, heard he was sick
Harry Turteldove - fast as usual
Larry Niven - long slow line
Louis Charbonneau - missed him

Did some 'Filing' - or at least labeled the box that I threw it all into...
Processed 2 boxes of vintage paperbacks, lots of Mystery & SF, some vintage sleaze, and other stuff. Getting ready for the paperback show on the 30th, should have done this months ago, but ...
Here's some of them.
