re: Paypal

I am receiving notes that payments for 'The Global Meteorite Price
Report - 2013' made to Paypal searching 'Kevin Kichinka' don't go

And thanks to those already figuring this out. I am sending out both
pdf files as fast as I can.

re: 'The Art of Collecting Meteorites' - Don Merchant wonders how many
copies were ever available, and would like to know their history. With
pleasure I will describe this.

In December, 2004 I purchased 1,000 paperback copies (I tend to call
them 'hard copies' as differentiated from eBooks) from self-publisher
Bookmasters in Ohio. Per contract I was liable for paying for 1,100
copies if their printing presses 'forgot' to stop at 1,000. Surprise!
I got to pay for the extra 100 copies which was another $1,500. OK. In
early 2011 I was running out of copies and realized that I was still
selling one copy/week. I didn't have time to do the eBok thing yet. I
didn't want to 'leave money on the table' nor did I want to disappoint
new collectors, so I ordered up another 100 copies at a much higher
per copy rate because of the small order and high shipping to Florida.
I had to raise the cover price $5 to cover the difference.

I am now down to about one dozen copies, Gary and Blaine, as
mentioned, have a few more that they will likely offer at Tucson.

As for 'signed and numbered copies', the first large batch - and the
first week I offered the book I sold 300 copies- were signed, maybe
signed and numbered. After that, I did it only when requested. Then
after that, I put 'signed and numbered copies' only on eBay because
they bring more $ sometimes. After that, I only offered signed copies
on eBay.

Now I have a couple left that will be signed for eBay and only #500
left of the numbered books.

Next year I will de-activate the book's website as it is not needed
for the eBook..

How 'bout that, Don!

Thanks to all for your support of this project.
