Mc’s Books

Well, yes, I’m on your favorite curb with my card table set up and my thermos of soup in front of me, interrupting your stride by calling out, “Books here! CDs! Great birthday and holiday gifts! (Gift wrap not included.)”

I’m proud of my work, including the work that has gone out of print. As much as ever, I want it to reach readers. Okay, yes, this is also a way for me to take your hard-earned money out of your pocket without doing time.

Thank you, dear readers!
