It was nice to see you on TV promoting your book signing event. I will try to make it - but of course, I have already made one signing for Quantico at UBooks. I spoke to you once about my collection of sci-fi paperbacks. While most of the really early paperbacks have been given away or in some cases, sold, I do still have a dozen or so left, but they are mainly from the 50's and 60's - let me know if you would still be interested.
I hope to see you at the Locus awards again this year.
While I an not in anyway obsessive about my Greg Bear collection, and I am sure there are any number of collectors with more of your books.... Do you have or do you know where I could obtain: ARCs, Proofs, etc...?
All my best, Gary

Hello, Gary! ARCs and proofs trade frequently at conventions--those might be the best sources. Other than that, I can only suggest SF dealers online--or ABEbooks.

Hi Gary - You can also try Wrigley-Cross Books (http://www.wrigleycrossbooks.com">http://www.wrigleycrossbooks.com). They are in Troutdale (just south of Portland), but I believe they do online sales as well and they always have a wonderful selection of books including small press, ARCs, and imports. I haven't shopped them online, but when I lived in Portland that was one of my favorite places to browse and I never walked out of there without some sort of treasure!

Wrigley-Cross are great folks--and frequent exhibitors at the Seattle Antiquarian Book Fair, one of my favorite events here.
