I also have a large inventory of Kelton first editions and used out-of-print titles, but I don’t try to keep a list of those because the inventory is constantly changing.  So, if you’re looking for first editions by Elmer Kelton, or titles that are out-of-print, contact me by phone (325-659-3788) 
or e-mail (cactusbooks@suddenlinkmail.com)
