My Books For Sale
I have recently decided to sell many of the books that I have collected over the years. The books are quaranteed to be as advertised below and in the conditions described. One or more photographs accompany each listing. Unfortunately, I am forced to restrict my sales to customers with addresses in the United States. This is because, in the past, I have shipped some war games to addresses to Europe and they never reached the buyers. When dealing with books that are worth hundreds to thousdands of dollars, I can't risk them being "lost" during delivery. If you are from a country outside of the 50 United States and wish to buy one of my books, you can do so only if you have me ship it to an address in the United States. I must receive payment before the books is shipped. Payment may be made in U.S. currency via PayPal, or by bank check drawn on a bank that is physically located within the United States.
To order a book, email me, , and let me know which book you wish to purchase so that I can reserve it for you if it is still available. In your email, give me the address in the U.S. that you wish to have the book mailed to and the method of payment that you wish to use (that is, PayPal, bank check or money order). If you wish to use PayPal, you must have an established PayPal account before I can initiate the billing process and you must have sufficient funds in your PayPal account for the billing to be successful. If you do not yet have a PayPal account, you must inform me of this and then contact me again after it is established. If paying by PayPal, you must tell me what email address is associated with your PayPal account in order for me to bill it. As stated above, bank checks must be in U.S. currency and drawn on a bank that is physically located in the United States.
The sale prices listed below do not include shipping costs. Shipping may be by USPS or UPS. Shipping cost will be determined after the buyer informs the seller how he wishes the book(s) to be shipped subsequent to being given the various costs by the seller.
