The French Collection

I recently received an email to my editor@feastoflaughter.org address from a French book collector asking if I'd be interested in purchasing his Lafferty collection. Alas, I cannot afford it, but he did encourage me to share his contact information with other Lafferty fans to see if someone would like to purchase it. Here are his collection and his contact information:
