Here are some more places to look around our site:
Arkham House, Mycroft & Moran,
and Fedogan & Bremer Books At the request of several of our customers, we started
a page for the books of Arkham House and related publishers.
We try hard to keep it up to date with news and a list of
forthcoming books and a list of those books we have of these
publishers - both new and used.
Author Web Sites/Fan Sites A list of Authors and their websites or fan sites.
Unfortunately, I haven't kept up with the sites going out or
changing although a recent check with a program showed no
broken links. One can hope right?
Book Care and other book
information About Books includes items on Book Care as well as a
How to Identify First Editions. It will include links,
reviews, and all kinds of other interesting (to us at least)
tidbits as we add to it.
Book Condition Description We use certain "bookseller" terms when we describe our
books. Generally, they tend to mean what you think they would
mean. For example Fine means basically without faults. The
exact meanings behind what we mean are given on this page. As
mentioned on the page, book condition is sometimes a
subjective "call" by the book seller. We try to be objective,
but might (in your opinion) fail. If so, you can return the
book for any reason.
Book Inventory Programs The question of which book inventory program to use was
always coming up on some of the forums I visit so I though I
would put down some thoughts here. It is evolving and will
eventually try to cover many aspects of inventory management
(in the sometime distant future). In the mean time, if you
have something you would like to see, let me know.
Book Reviews A slowly growing list of books we've reviewed. We would
be happy to have your comments and, if you like, your reviews
(with, of course, credit to you if you wish).
Chrislands Book Stores Chrislands is the company which hosts our site. We are
very happy with them as are their other customers. This page
gives links to many of the other Chrisland stores.
Glossary of Terms Used in Literature and the Book and Printing Trades This page grew out of a request from a customer about book terms, a bookman's glossary so to
speak. Now I could have just pointed them to the IOBA Book Terminology but I though it would be
nice [and make our site more attractive] if we had a page of our own. Well now we do - at least
the start of one
Help for on-line book buyers We hope this page will help you have a more pleasant
on-line book buying experience. It also lists a few other
places to get books - If we don't have the book you are
looking for, of course :-)
IOBA Book Stores The Independent Online Booksellers Association, is
dedicated to promoting internet bookselling by, in part,
"Maintaining and enforcing high ethical and professional
standards for our member booksellers, including a Code Of
Ethics." White Unicorn Books is a proud member of the IOBA
and on this page we list some of the other IOBA stores.
Liaden Universe of Steve Miller & Sharon Lee This page is for our Steve Miller and Sharon Lee books. It is mainly books set in the
Liaden Universe® and has a list of books in that series, including the Chapter Books,
as well as a set of references and links to other sites for the two authors.
Previously Featured Books Featured Books is where we list the books
which have been featured on our home page - we may have more
about the book than is in the normal catalog listing, so we
decided to just keep track of them here. For example, when we
Chronicles of Narnia we listed "both sequences". The
order in which they were originally published and "the
preferred sequence of CS Lewis".
We also have some special pages for books which are special in some way. It may be that
the book itself is special or that a customer asked for more images, so we put up a page for the
book. In any case we have these single pages for a particular book:
Crystallizing Public Opinion Bernays is considered by many as the originator of modern public relations and has been called
the "Father of Spin". He was named one of the 100 most influential Americans of the 20th
century by Life magazine.
Oxford Lectern Bible The Oxford Lectern Bible is a massive edition of the English Bible designed by American
typographer Bruce Rogers (1870-1957). It is considered by many to be Rogers' masterpiece,
and is recognized along with the other great Bibles, including the Baskerville Bible and
the Doves Press Bible.
The Principles Of Judicial Proof Normally we don't put up our used books as a Featured Book on the home page they don't last long
enough to stay here since we generally only have a single copy) but this one is such an absolutely
beautiful book I had to put it up. So, of course, I had to build a page for it.
The Religious System of China First published over quite a few years, the initial volume was published in 1892 and
the final volume was printed in 1910, The Religious System of China is a monumental work
by Jan J M de Groot that "is an attempt at depicting the Chinese Religion as it is really
practiced by the nation, and at sketching on a broad scale its influence on Domestic and
Social Life. It is the fruit of an intimate contact with the Chinese race for several
years." The work also contains a detailed study of China's funerary stelae, and the mythical
animals used to decorate them.
Ramblings/Blog/Book Reviews and
whatever This is really a series of pages consistings of almost
anything. On these pages I've written about Medicard Part D,
about searching for information on a book on Google and at
the Library of Congress, reviewed several books, and talked
about the IOBA. No telling what will show up there. I'm sure
we'll duplicate information on the rest of the site, but a
lot of it will be unique. Hope you find it of interest.
Repricing A short look at some of the reasons for (semi)automatically repricing your
inventory including a few Perl code snippets.
Setting Up an Internet Book
Store An article I wrote for the IOBA. It presents a "first
look" at some of the things one should think about in setting
up an internet book store.
Transfer Homebase data to
BookTrakker We use BookTrakker for maintaining and updating our
main database of books we have listed here on our site. In
talking to other BookTrakker users, they wanted to know how
they could use someone to enter data which they could
transfer to BookTrakker either in addition to or instead of
using the network version of BookTrakker. Since we use both
the network version and Homebase as "auxillary input
systems", I though I would finally describe how we did the
Homebase to BookTrakker part of it.
