Signal Boost for Blind Lemming Chiffon

Our buddy Blind Lemming Chiffon is in a bit of a rough patch right now. To help get through it, he has a bunch of nifty collectible books available on eBay. Won't you help?

Thanks for the link to his books and fanzines. (I just sent him a package this morning for his CD project from last month.)

Tom, thanks. My suspicion is this batch of books will get some heavy bidding and I'll get enough to cover my delinquent bills. I've had the same 26 books up for 2 prior weekly auctions, at safe minimums, and they've had lots of watchers but no bids. So, I'm taking a risk here, but also considering I'm way ahead of the game on previous auctions, so if I dip a little under what I paid for a few items, I should still break even

I don't have an ebay account (it got hacked once and I won't go back) but if you have any Amazing Stories or Astounding Science Fiction magazines items without bids, let me know and maybe we can work something out.

I have most of the Amazing and Astounding digests. The pulp collection went to eager buyers 2-3 years ago. I still have a few random Astounding pulps in bound volumes. If you need any of the digests, send me a list.

I'm mostly curious about what the Astounding pulps had in them. I'm not collecting them or anything. If the auction for the magazines don't pan out, I'd take them off your hands.

If you don't get the from Lem, after ebay ends, a friend of mine has some available.

That's OK. I just offered to help Lem through his rough spot. I'm just curious about what's in them and not collecting them.
