California Antiquarian Book Fair

Kyle and I went to the 53rd annual California International Antiquarian Book Fair in Pasadena yesterday, not only to check out books but to visit with the awesome Obadiah Baird, editor of The Audient Void and owner of The Book Bin in Portland, OR.  He drove all the way down here to vend at this event and since we missed him last year, we decided to visit.  I also scored The Black Book of Clark Ashton Smith. 

I also met a Lovecraft book collector named Tim.  We had a short but lovely conversation about Lovecraft and Smith and a few acquaintances we share.  It also turns out that he has my book and will be coming to the L. A. Vintage Paperback Festival next month to get it signed.
