Brian Stableford:
Selling the Collection

Message received from Brian on 5 April 2010:

As you might well have heard over the weekend, circumstances oblige me to dispose of all my books. The reference collection has approximately 2,500 antique hardcovers and large pbs, 3,500 post-1950 hardcovers and pbs, 1,000 pulps, 1000 other large sized magazines, 4,500 digest magazines, 6,500 small paperbacks, 1,000 non-fiction titles, 300 illustrated books and 200 books in French. My personal archive amounts to 1,000 items, with 2,000 duplicates.
