Library of the Occult Hardcovers on ebay Ending Today!

Postby maisonvivante » Thu 18 Oct, 2007 17:17:12

Hi guys. I wish I could have posted here more lately. It's still kind of sad for me. Bob and I had some nice chats over email and I still can't believe he's gone. But anyway. . .

I wanted to let you guys know that I'm selling 3 hardcover Library of the Occult books in one auction. As you guys may know, it's practically impossible to find these books in hardcover, so they are pretty rare. I'm happy to ship worldwide, but I'm in the U.S. I'm sorry I didn't let everyone know sooner, time seems to be running away with me.

Here's a link if you're interested:

I'm sure we all feel the same sense of unreality about it all - I for one certainly do - but through the site Bob's work lives on.

Hopefully he is looking down from somewhere and enjoying it - curiously, in one of my own last conversations with him, he assumed it would not survive him. It's nice we're all proving him wrong ...

Very best of luck on eBay - it's certainly a nice item !

I had not even known these three titles existed in hardcover (in this series). I *do* have the Dumas HORROR AT FONTENAY, which was issued in hardcover in the U.S., apparently a one-off.

Actually, one of the first conversations Bob and I had was about these hardcovers. I think he updated the Occult Library page to better reflect which ones had been available in hardcover. There were only a few titles. Sadly, the majority only appeared in paperback. Considering the relative obscurity of some of the titles, it's a same that White Lion didn't publish more in hardcover.

Really. I just went and checked the page, and they did make some odd choices. (There's so many things on this site I've never examined in detail...) Surely, DRACULA has never been that difficult to come by in hardcover, and I've had CARNACKI for years.
