I've been in touch with them, and we're trying to work something out!

There was an article in the Boston Globe about it recently too.

Well, this is interesting.
A repost in another group of the Boston Globe article from last year about David Markson's library got this back on my radar.

Over the past year plus, a Facebook group has popped up by fans of Markson's who sought out his books and have used the gorup to share their finds:

and the group admin has also created a tumblr: http://readingmarksonreading.tumblr.com/

Another article from the last go 'round I had missed:
