Williamson Warehouse find!!

In our last email, we shared that we found two cartons (20 copies) of AT THE HUMAN LIMIT, THE COLLECTED STORIES OF JACK WILLIAMSON, VOLUME EIGHT. What we neglected to share is that these copies are SIGNED by Connie Willis (author of the introduction). Published in 2011 and out of print, we are offering these on a first-come first-served basis at $45 ea. (NET to all)  Right now, we have 8 copies left.(FYI: a few copies of the 1/75 slipcased edition signed by Connie Willis, initialed by artist Ralph McQuarrie and bearing a mounted Jack Williamson autograph are still available).

These Jack Williamson titles are also available, but are VERY low in stock . . .
