Ken Holt Homepage:

Jim says that he is working on what he calls his "most risky reprint endeavor." He is reprinting the last two Larry Dexter books and the Dave Fearless books, which were originally published as cheap paperbacks that cannot be read now due to the brittle paper. He is hoping to get the support of Hardy Boys collectors, since a few of the books were written by Leslie McFarlane.

Jim is open to the idea of printing more Linda Carlton books, but he needs to clear some of his current inventory and see how the Dave Fearless reprints are going. As I asked in my last post, please let me know if you think you would be interested in reprints of the last two Linda Carlton books. I told Jim that I am trying to generate more interest in the Linda Carlton reprints.

I have also told Jim that I will be willing to buy multiple copies of the books if there is an additional print run. I want to make it more likely that he might consider another print run. I bought several copies each of volumes 4 and 5 from the last print run because I was hoping they would sell out fast enough to guarantee another printing. This did not happen, but I think that enough people might be interested so that we might still get another print run at some point in the future. I am not going to sell my extras until, hopefully, after we get another print run and that print run is sold out.
