    If anyone is interested I have a complete set of Hugo Gernsback’s ‘Forecase” Xmas cards. I can supply copies on CD ROM of individual or groups, just ask me for a quote and tell me which years you are interested in.

    In addition:

    I’ve recently published a new 900-page biography about the life and times of Hugo Gernsback. It is available on Amazon. Just follow this link:

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1419658573/ref=s9_asin_title_1?pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=center-1&pf_rd_r=0E2P5EPVT6GNP7TGPC29&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=320448601&pf_rd_i=507846

    The manuscript was found while I was in the process of closing down Gernsback Publications Inc. in 2003. It was apparently written some time in the 1950’s. It covers all the areas that Hugo found interesting: wireless communications, science fiction, publishing, patents, foretelling the future, and much more.

  2. Amazon to acquire ABE Books? Hmmm…seeing that it is made up of second-hand booksellers that probably use it to avoid Amazon’s “Partner” service, will they just form a new one?

    A sad blow for independence.
