Poster: Erick and Sue <bduck@fred.net>

Greetings to All--

This is a 'kind of a' Steirbach Elevation announcement AND has nothing to
do with Northern Principality debates.

For those who plan to attend Stierbach and also plan to peruse the merchant
area, Page After Page, (the book dealer) will be there with some
interesting new and used titles.

We have a LARGE assortment of "new" interesting used and rare books--at
very reasonable prices we have picked up since the Moghul Sweep.  And some
new titles we have never carried before.

For those who suspect, yes, THIS is why we are in this business--we love
finding great new & used books and getting them to the right person.

And, yes we still take checks and cash.  We have run into a few roadblocks
in getting signed up to accept credit cards...it IS in the works, just
taking longer than we'd like.

Some of our new, new titles are:

**Most Wise & Valiant Ladies: Remarkable Lives Women of the Middle Ages, By
Andrea Hopkins.

continuing development of the English village and countryside.
