Ghostbusters RPG books: Who ya gonna call?!

I have a large assortment of old, weird RPG books and modules as well as miniature lead figures I need to sell. As I find time I am photographing and writing descriptions to offer them for sale online. Here are two unusual publications by West End Games from the 80s and 90s:

Ghostbusters: Scared Stiffs (A Ghostbusters Adventure) [Paperback] In original shrinkwrap, wrap has some open spots at edges producing minor shelfwear. An ethereal escapade. Price: $20.00
Lurid Tales of Doom (GBI: Ghostbusters International) [Paperback] Still in the original shrink wrap (wrap has one tear on front). Price: $16.00

My garage sale find of the weekend!

Three beautiful (not antique) glass-doored bookcases for $40. a piece. She wanted more but I'm a pro at bargaining and I can't wait to put my collection of books on Assyria and Persia in one of these! We loaded them in the truck and brought them home on Saturday, I cleaned them and now they are ready for some books.

The Caedmon Poetry Collection: A Century of Poets Reading Their Work [Set of 3 CDs]

This provides a choice gathering of some of the twentieth century's greatest poetry read by the century's greatest poets!

A reawakened love for the sound of poetry has made modern poems subtly different from the poems of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. We have only to listen to these poets reading their own works to know how important their interpretations are to a full comprehension of their poems. The ministerial intonations of Eliot, the passionate orchestrations of Thomas, the very very precise formulations of Cummings, the easy conversational inflection of Frost are integral, lending subtle clarifications which go beyond the printed page.

The fact that this recording includes the voice of Yeats is something of a miracle. In the early 1930's, when the thought of recording poets occurred to few, Yeats himself made several recordings for radio broadcast. By sheer luck, an unmutilated copy was preserved; and now the rich and melodious voice can be heard by a new generation.
