Confessions of a used-book salesman.

Confessions of a used-book salesman. – By Michael Savitz – Slate Magazine. I have seen people at Library Sales scanning books. I see now what they are doing. Using an App they check Amazon to find out how much profit they can reasonably make from a book. They then can buy the book, put it […]

Keith Graham's Links

I started reading Science Fiction in the 1950s. I started Writing SF in the 1960s. Then, I had a life. Now I am retired, raising chickens and keeping bees. I am still an avid reader and I have sold about 70 stories in the last 20 years.
I have been collecting information about writing Science Fiction for many years now. Social media has replaced the Blog and large dedicated websites, so the pages here are mostly static. I update them from time to time.
