Giant SF Book Sale - going on NOW at KU!

Do you want some classic SF? Perhaps some more-recent stuff? Well, I have just what you need!

Huge Science Fiction Book Sale (thousands of books!) today, tomorrow, and Thursday (September 9-10-11), from 9am to 5pm at KU's Watson Library. Whoah, that's NOW!


Click the image to see the story.

There will be a lot of amazing material in this sale, partly because of how the KU Library has changed what they consider for the rare-books collection. Also duplicates of things they do consider important for the collection. Oh, and prices are obscenely low. So check it out!

Best,
Chris

They screened which books they're selling this time, right?

Yes - the new librarian already sorted through them and sent them over. There were only a few... which makes me wonder if a bunch were already sold, or if we got lucky and caught most of them the first time.

Optimism Girl hopes for the latter.

Heck, there's only 4000 vintage and recent SF books on sale there. You're not missing out on anything.

Whoah, I better get up there and start snatchin' up the goodies!

Oops, that just kinda slipped out. Sorry.

I cannot purchase them today. :(

And, oh yeah, I work during those times the other two days. I'll have to be sneaky...

I just got back to my office with two bags of books! But still tons of good stuff left.

I even helped a former student get a book he wanted but didn't have the dollar to purchase.

I'll just come over on a game day and borrow one from the McKitterick Libray of Science Fiction.

Sounds grand! And you can fetch your hostaged Heroes season, too... but only if you exchange it for Season Two. Bwahahahaha!

My first thought was "Oh! I WISH I were there!" My second thought is that it's probably a good thing I'm not. I have too many books already, alas. Maybe I could hang around outside and give restorative cups of tea to Kansans I'd like to see, as they stagger out, exhausted and heavy-laden with treasures.

I accidentally bought $58.00 worth of books there, myself. Good thing I didn't go to the sale in July when there were twice as many available....
