there's still time to order a copy at the discount rate. I wanted to reward the people who have shown a huge amount of faith in Bear Alley Books... but I will have to knock the discount on the head after 3 February.
Some of you may have noticed a lack of updates to the little rolling news column that sits over to the left of this central column. I'm not sure why, but there was a problem with it that meant that, whilst I could write new entries, they weren't saving. I've resolved this by loading up a new widget and deleting the old one. Simples. Keeping up to date with the news, not so simples... but I'll do my best.

I spotted this some weeks ago and have been meaning to share it with you. I love this kind of thing. It's addictive... but I'm going to give you the link anyway. Go take a look at Alex Cherney's other videos at Vimeo.
Our random scans this week are four from Scion from the early 1950s. These were all in pretty bad condition and you'll see that it wasn't always possible to fix them. But I've done the best I can. I love these old gangster covers... so anyone who wants to send me any scans, please do. Condition not important, but reasonably big so I've got something to work with.
