I've been selling rare and antiquarian books since 1997, originally specializing in mountaineering and exploration literature, before turning to more unusual subject matter such as works on magic, witchcraft, old time religion, curious and forgotten lore, and more. In 1999 I opened a tiny brick and mortar store in Seattle's historic Pioneer Square district. After a short while I closed the shop (years before it became popular) and have been operating as an online bookseller ever since. I also exhibit regularly at bookfairs. Below you will find a recent interview I did with The Skeptical Occultist blog. It provides a bit more background, and at the same time, allows me to share some insights about my experiences in the book trade.
