Book Giveaway

I just stumbled on this via a Google search and am not clear as to who might be eligible to request any of these books, but I would love the Pratchett copies. Feel free to email me at art.e.hall@gmail.com if they are still available. I will give them a wonderful home. I understand that shipping costs will surely apply and would be happy to pay for shipping and handling.

Re: Book Giveaway

Hi Art,

This was intended for just my local friends (Boston area), but I could probably send you the Pratchett books. Things are a little crazy right now, but I can probably get them to you soon. Email me your mailing address (queue@livejournal.com), and I'll get the books together and let you know about shipping.

Winter in Eden, Harry Harrison
Return to Eden, Harry Harrison

Kudos for the giveaway offer... sorry it wasn't rewarded by more takers...

I can probably drop them off some time this weekend, although with impending babyness, it'll be hard to predict. I can bring them by and either hand them to you if you're around or leave them on your porch in a plastic bag if you're not around. Sound OK?
