The Paperback Collectors Show will be held on March 28, 1999 at the Mission
Hills Inn. Admission is $5.

Several authors and cover artists will be on hand for autographs and
interviews. This year will feature Howard Browne, A.S. Fliechman (ever read
the Venetian Blonde?), Michael Collins, Michael Avillone and others. (Caveat
- Howard Browne did not show up as scheduled last year - He's about 91 years
old). Richard Prather made an appearance last year. What a character he is.

Some dealers will be on hand who you will recognize since they show up on
this thread every once in awhile: Gary Lovisi and Lynn Munro among others.
There is always a couple of U.K. dealers who bring the Pan editions.

I've been to this show three times and I end up spending about $100 and I am
very frugal! I prefer to purchase the banged up books for reading rather
than the museum pieces. You'll find plenty of both at this show.

For more info, call Black Ace Books (a great catalog and auctioner of
collectable books) at 323-661-5052

I'd love to arrange a rara-avis meeting but I will be out of the country.
Can anyone recommend some good used bookstores in the Benelux region of
