Does anyone here know anything of an Advanced Book Exchange bookseller named W.C. Thornton in Hanson, Massachusetts? I ordered an issue of Crypt of Cthulhu from him over a month ago on May 12, & never received it. I wrote to him nearly a month later, and he said basically Terribly sorry (paraphrased from memory), and promised to send the book on June 4th via Priority Mail. It never arrived.

I filed for a refund on June 21st, and just received an email on June 22nd, today, from this bookseller, saying terribly sorry (another paraphrase), again, and saying that he was shipping the book out today. I checked the tracking number he gave me, and it seems to be fake.

Has anyone else ever heard of/dealt with this seller before?; does he have a reputation for trading hot air for money, like this, with other customers?

I looked up his website and it appears legit. I also checked the BBB and there is no record for him or Abe Books listed. He apparently is just flakey. I hope you paid with a credit card. I would just file a reversal at this point.
