AND NOW - - - - My Personal Collection is also listed EXCLUSIVELY on this site.
(*) My Penny Books Catalog - Buy ANY signed/autographed/inscribed book (1 or more) at the advertised price and pick a single book from my Free Books (*) Catalog for only $ .01 (ONE PENNY)! Make sure the invoice reflects this properly. I will reject your order and refund your money if you don't play fair. :-) Unfortunately, I can't logically tie selection of a book from this catalog to selection of a signed book. So don't be disappointed if I contact you to let you know if your order does NOT follow this rule. Thanks.
Please search or browse my inventory. If you can't find what you like please fill out my off-line search service form or email me at ABNormalBooks@verizon.net , and I will help you look.
I specialize in signed, autographed, and inscribed hard cover, modern, 1st Edition, speculative (science) fiction, fantasy, horror, mystery and other fiction. All of my books are kept on shelves in a smoke-free environment. Dust jackets are covered with mylar protective DJ covers (usually Brodart).
Most of my inventory are signed first editions and I am adding to inventory almost daily, so bookmark this site or refer to the mailing list information below.
I only purchase from VERY reputable and well known dealers, bookstores that have authors in for signings and that I have been dealing with for many, many years (some listed below) and on occasion I will purchase from a collector directly. I have been collecting for decades and selling for almost as long.
Upon ordering a book, you can print the 'order form'. I will also contact you with a total and include a copy of the order form with the book for your records.
I hope you find something you like.
