Dear Mr. Pinkwater:
I have been a fan for decades. Unfortunately, I have been having trouble purchasing some of your titles from Barnes & Noble and Borders (They usually only carry Hoboken Chicken Emergency, 4 & 5 Novels). I currently own about 20 books, and I’m looking to expand my DMP Jr collection. Can you please send me an address of a retailer or wholesaler that carries a large inventory of your books. Thank you.
Any bookseller should be able to order any in-print book for you. (And make sure the book is really out-of-print, if that's what they tell you, and not just out-of-stock at the distributor's). As to the many out-of-print titles, you have to hunt around. There are booksellers that may have them....and don't pay $100+ to amazon for an O-O-P title. That's for the rich and/or lazy. Have fun hunting!
(I recommend Bibliofind.com and 1bookstreet.com. --Ed)
