  1. Cool - I have many of the same titles, 24 to be exact. Excellent list - thanks for posting it. If you don't already have it, Cody Lundins 98.6 Degrees is worth looking at as well. Great stuff.

  2. I wonder if you could make this list clickable? it looks like a very good one and some of the things I buy.

  3. A late entry, but what 'da heck. I notice there isn't a single Ragnar Benson on your list. Check him out. Paladin Press.

    1. As I stated, it is a partial listing, be patient.
