RARA-AVIS: David Goodis on eBay

Some more obscure Goodis is getting some big bucks on eBay this week. Of Missing Persons had a bid of $51.51, which didn't meet the reserve the dealer set. Another dealer put up a copy of Fire in the Flesh with a starting bid of $39.99 and a Buy it Now price of $59.99 and it sold at that price.

I think the book dealers on eBay are getting really greedy. The story of the week, though, is the woman (tamaradelempika she calls herself) who put up an excellent copy of Chaze's Black Wings with a starting bid of $6.50, but quickly figured out how much it was worth and took the auction down and put it back up with a stating bid of $499.00. Obviously she wasn't aware that copies in similar condition went previously for about $150.
