My name is Larry and although I help run another blog site (OF Blog of the Fallen), this blog will serve as a mirror to the OF Blog until I decide which of the two I want to be my main blog.

I am also the new series editor for the Best American Fantasy anthology series and will be contributing occasional posts to the BAF Blog.

    Hello Larry, Can you let me know the URL of the Serbian bookshop where you were able to get ‘The Five Wonders of the Danube’ by Zoran Zivkovic. I’m looking for that book as well. Thanks, Ian.

  • Larry says:

    Ian, I used ABEbooks about a year ago to order it. I see now there’s only the Serbian shipper there (uncertain if it’s in Serbian or English; some English-language books are published in Serbia, especially Živković’s). Amazon also has a seller listed there, but it too is somewhat unclear to me. Sorry I can’t help any more than that.

    Hi Larry, I’d like to email you about something but I can’t find an address anywhere? Perhaps you could shoot me a line at ‘salamander_music@live.com.au’

    Hi Larry, my name is Kara. I really would like to use the image you posted on your blog of the Leatherbound Classics: Edward Gibbon,
    “The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, vol. I”. I work for a non-profit and working on a historical/encyclopedia type publication right now. Would it be possible to get permission to use this image?

    Let me know!
    Thank you, Kara

  • Disclaimer

    This blog receives hundreds of books each year from publishers across the United States, as well as from British and Canadian publishers. Most of them I do not bother to read. Some I cannot read, since my puppy has shredded the packages in which the books arrive before I can pick them up off of the front porch. Others I do end up reading, but I rarely say more than a sentence or two in a reading journal-like entry. Only a dozen or two books per year out of the hundreds I receive from publishers each year are reviewed in full. Some of those receive positive marks, because I found the stories to be excellent. Others receive mixed or negative comments, because I found structural weaknesses in that book's characterization, prose, and/or plot. In each case, the opinions expressed are mine and not words placed into my mouth by an author, publicist, or any other representative of a publishing firm. Now that you know this, understand that this disclaimer applies to all reviews, whether or not I actually bought or received the book as a review copy. After all, I cannot afford to spend hundreds of dollars shipping the books (read or unread) back to the publishers, thus this disclaimer. Thank you and drive through.
