    I can't recall were I found that information. As I do not own one I am unable to speak to if all editions came with the letter. I believe I have seen an image of the letter at one time.

    No, mine (#222) doesn't have it, either. Makes me kinda wonder if a publisher's letter (and whatever it contained) was truly distributed with each copy or not.

    Just for fun I checked ebay and they have one up now with a buy it now price of $250. The description states it is #10 and has the publishers letter. I am unfamiliar with the seller http://www.ebay.com/itm/Ghost-Story-...QAAOSwol5Yxv1K

    My heart was racing!

    I'm going to double check mine. Maybe it was laid in somewhere...

    They have a big book sale at the local mall about 3 times a year. At the most recent I nabbed some great reading material.


    Also been browsing some used book stores recently.

    These are from a little while ago, already read Mucho Mojo. Need to track down Three Bear Mambo now, no luck yet. Hit Man was a repeat, already had the PB, but this was a Proof copy that I found in a random spot at a book store. Was pretty excited to find it and snapped it up for a good price.

    Got these at a different used book shop.



    The bottom two were free, If you spent $10 or more you can choose a book from a free shelf. Great find there too, was wanting to read The Devil in the White City. As I was going up to pay I noticed The Bottoms right at the counter, which was fortuitous because I couldn't find any Lansdale in the rest of the store. And lo and behold it's an ARC! Not just that it had promotional material in it too, not even $5.

    This beautiful portfolio showed up recently too. With my two original remarques. I was really blown away by this. Way more material from both artists thatn I'd expected. THe prelim sketches were particularly interesting.

    I'm also proud to say that I own two of the original pieces from this portfolio, one from David Palumbo and the other from Glen Chadbourne.

    Wow! Great haul. I really dog that Palumbo painting.

    I have yet to make it through the novel "Inherent Vice", but I loved the film version.
