Some new additions... and did you know there's a Book Fair coming up?

First off, here are some new additions to the website.

Added today (which means I've been doing data entry again!)

You know - mice must be one of the basic tropes of Children's books.
It amazes me how many different mice books I've come across in the last few years.
Here's another - Sylvester The Mouse with the Musical Ear by Adelaide Holl (illustrations by N. M Bodecker)

In a completely different vein, this book - if you're not a mathematician,
looks like its written in a foreign language.  
This book deals with very early theories and practices of artificial intelligence and cybernetics.
Interesting (at least to me), the editor C. A. Muses is a doctor of Philosophy who has written works
that put a rather...esoteric slant on mathematics.
And last, but definitely not least...

The inestimable Alexander Botts - Salesman extraordinaire for the 
Earthworm Tractor Company.
If you've never read any of the short stories about Alexander Botts, you're definitely missing something.

And in other news...
The Sacramento Fall Antiquarian Book Fair is coming up September 18th at the Scottish Rite Temple in Sacramento (Duh..)

If you're interested in coming and would like a free pass, let me know.

And in that same vein...  the fair is three weeks away.... and of course, I'm NOT ready.

Time to start packing boxes and getting mentally prepared.  Yikes!
