ESCAPE FROM THE PLANET KARAXE

It’s been a while since I posted.  Partly, I’ve been busy, partly, it’s getting harder for me to find good items on ABE.  Many fascinating items have no image included.  Some images are terrible- dark, fuzzy, cell-phone-like shots of books propped up against shelves.  So, I’ve been getting creative in finding likely candidates.  Rather than just searching for keywords like OCLC, Worldcat, none, not, etc., I’ve been looking at things “not in COPAC,” “extremely scarce” and so on. Then I look for them in Worldcat.  This is much more labor intensive.  Today, I looked at older titles from Vantage Press, a vanity press, and thus less likely to be collected by libraries (in theory).  I like “Escape from the Planet Karaxe.”  The title and cover illustration seem more like an Avalon SF title from the late 1950s than something published in 1970.

    hmm, perhaps we need a ‘not in ABE’ blog also?

    seriously, keep up the posts whenever you can. for many of us, the message that libraries do not contain all the information in the world is still sinking in, and it’s a great reminder that Google will fail at achieving the same goal.
