Pulp collector John Locke adds to the discourse:
Saw your Ed Gobbett post.
I met him through the mail in the 1980s, later in person.
He lived about ten miles from John Gunnison. We occasionally caravaned from DC to Dayton for Pulpcon.
Once eBay caught fire, he dropped out of the convention scene and did all his buying online — and a lot of it. Ed had a deep Robert E. Howard collection, and rarities you never see.
His book room filled with pulps, then it started spilling into other places in the house.
Ed began to give stuff to Gunnison to sell, but not the good stuff.
John will be selling it all in due course.
