The "B" is for "Bill". Not to be confused with Bluesman, also a Bill.

Below this point, it's notes for me. Which I seem to review every year or so....

The Brian Stableford collection is going to take some time to go through. If you see anything especially of interest here, let me know. I'm just going to record what there is for now, and what my future intentions for it are. BLongley 14:06, 14 Jul 2007 (CDT)

Just to make it clear: Knud Lam has expressed an interest in preserving the ENTIRE physical collection, I think: I have no Danish language skills and it seems my English isn't that clear to Danes either, as I have had to apologize several times over about my perceived intentions. I'm currently keeping these items and the other boxes/bags stored, and many items are of ISFDB interest. If anyone is interested in entering the ISFDB-relevant data, then I'm happy to let you borrow the items, on the understanding that Knud wants the physical copies eventually. Knud seems happy to allow researchers access to the physical editions, but he has a ten-year backlog of work already and I don't want to put the burden of data-entry on him alone! BLongley 16:42, 18 Jul 2007 (CDT)
I've lost contact with Knud, so everything is up for grabs. I wouldn't be happy making a profit from items given to me for nothing, so if you'll pay for the postage they are yours. It might take me some time to FIND the relevant items - they have been repacked at least twice during past moves, but I'm going to have to downsize a bit more and really need the space. But if I haven't looked at them in the last five years I suspect I never will. Drop me a line if anything appeals. Priority will be given to people willing to enter the data here - but if you just want to READ them that's fine by me as well. BLongley 06:22, 12 November 2013 (UTC)
