Back In Black
I'm fricking back.
Much to do, so this place may stay a empty a little while longer.
The Calliope Blog is running strong. Once I have Office on this system I'll finally get out the latest (and possibly last) low tech issue of Calliope.
I'm months late on the APA annish but since only myself and two others contributed I'm really wondering (and a bit saddened) that it may be in it's death throes.
Work is work, as of today I still have a job. Who the heck knows about tomorrow, me and about a zillion other folks out there I'm sure.

Let's see I get the bills caught up and the Internet back on, etc just in time for my computer to blow up. Litterally. So, I'm back to the library etc. for a while.
Then I find out the company is looking at my department for possible job cuts.
2009 is turning out to be just as great as a year as 2008 but at least I kept my job last year.
F*ck it. F*ck it all.

Bio: Eric C. Caren
Cross posted at Calliope Nerve, archived here for my reference:
From The Overstreet Comic Book Price Guid Thirty-Sixth Edition::
Eric C. Caren was born (a collector) in 1959. By the age of 5 he had collected stamps, coins and baseball cards. He started collecting rare newspapers at the age off 11, after stumbling upon an abandoned house full of them in Rockland County, NY where he lived. In high school in the mid-1970's he apprenticed with a rare book dealer in Connecticut and set up as a dealer at a comic book convention in NYC sometime around 1975. He graduated from the University of Maryland with a Business degree in 1981. His first job was director of a gallery that dealt in rare newspapers in London in Covent Garden Market soon after it opened. He established The Caren Archive, a full-time business selling historical collectibles in 1983. He co-founded HGA Auctions with Dennis Holzman. He is a former Director of The Ephemera Society of America, a member of the Antiquarian Booksellers Association of America, and a Consultant to The Newseum (Mr Caren's first newspaper collection will be the most substantial part of their permanent collection). He is a partner with Stephen A. Goldman in the business that bears his name as well as in OldNews, Inc. He has authored nine books using rare newspapers -- The Extra series with Castle Books - and has co-authored his 10th book, The Civil War Smithsonian Institution Headliners Series with Dr. Stephen A. Goldman. Reprints of papers from his and Dr. Goldman's archive are sold at The Smithsonian Institution and The Holocaust Memorial Museum.
