Lawyer file. Amazon’s $23,698,655.93 book about flies.

Amazon’s $23,698,655.93 book about flies

The book, published in 1992, is out of print. But Amazon listed 17 copies for sale: 15 used from $35.54, and 2 new from $1,730,045.91 (+$3.99 shipping). I sent a screen capture to the author – who was appropriate amused and intrigued. But I doubt even he would argue the book is worth THAT much. Tree Allay withpics.

Part of my cover letter: "The triolet pretty much gave up the ghost after Dobson, & I can not find a successful serious example besides that Bridges chestnut (the best one is by Adelaide Crapsey); nevertheless, its conciseness & musicality appeal to me (having written in practically every form). These cover a great span of time—my earliest attempt must have been around 1977—but mostly of recenter vintage. And I learned not to sweat the recurrences: my initial impulse (as I practiced in all the French forms) to make each repetition mean something different (which is still visible in a couple of these) resulted in unpleasing, when not ludicrous, contortions. If the mood of them seems dark, it is surely not darker than the times; if monotonous, it is because those are the feelings that called me to the form." – graywyvern

They were in great shape — the covers barely worn and the vinyl near mint. Johnny Guitar. Chris Leonard (July 2013) Rating: of 5 Throughout her five-decade-spanning career, Joan Crawford embodied numerous different roles, ranging from the shopgirl of the 1930s to the "Scream Queen" of the 1960s.

Johnny Guitar

It's in Johnny Guitar that Miss Crawford takes on one of her most notably different personas: the no-nonsense, yet still very much all woman, saloon owner Vienna. Perhaps the only Western ever to have women squaring off against each other (and in lead roles, too), Johnny Guitar is perhaps a rarity in Hollywood all 'round.
