Last night the owner bought in two full boxes of sci-fi anthologies from the seventies: Galaxy, and Fantasy and Science Fiction. He had me price them up, and today I shelved them. The entire time I was bagging, pricing, and organizing them I thought “I should buy these. They’re super cheap even before my discount. I like sci-fi stories, and these are by some of the most influential sci-fi writers of the generation before me. I think I’m going to buy them. Plus, as a set, they’d look really good on a bookshelf.”
Then, I noticed it wasn’t a complete run, there were several volumes missing, and suddenly, I didn’t want them anymore.
