    My order will show up when it does. I only meant to talk about Grab Bags. Besides I have many, way too many, books to read. I'm a patient peon. ~Cap

    Dinged grab bags are almost all shipped. Just a handful left that I should get out today. You should probably get your shipping notice later today if you haven't already.


    As far as grab bags go, I will say here what I tell pretty much everyone. Grab bags are for people who don't order very much. The more you order from a publisher, the more likely you are to get something you already have in a grab bag. So grab bags are always "buyer be aware".

    I think this is exactly why I have cut back my grab bag orders - especially if I have pretty much everything I really want on my shelf or on order.

    Received my Dinged Grab Bag order today and I could not be more pleased. All three books are absolutely mint condition, the flaw in each book is that they are limited editions with missing signature sheets.

    I received one duplicate, Tabitha King's Small World. I can trade that when I venture to Powell's.
    I received one I was interested in but had not purchased, Bill Pronzini's The Revenant.

    I received one I really wanted, Lonely Roads limited of The Fall. I actually have a copy of The Strain without the Signature sheet so I am thrilled to add this one.

    I am envious! I would have loved to get a copy of The Fall! My dinged grab bag was nearly as sweet. I got Small World, 4 Killers--which was never released to the general public--and Gone Girl which is a sharp production. I almost bought Gone Girl a few times so I'm happy to have a copy finally.

    Great score but that combo would have been complete duplicates for me.

    My Dinged Grab Bag was at the USPS today. Inside-Revenant by Bill Pronzini. I can't see anything wrong with this one. It's signed, no bumps, it's in perfect condition to my eyes. The Book of Baby Names by Norman Prentiss. This one is a PC copy-Bent dustjacket and one big bump on the upper right corner. Now this fits the defintion of dinged. Sick Chick Flicks by John Skipp. It is a trade paperback and is in perfect condition-Just not signed. I think I'll especially enjoy reading the first Pronzini and Prentiss books. I'm quite happy I snagged this Dinged Grab Bag.

    Edit-The only thing I saw after looking at the Pronzini book again is a tiny raise or rumple on the back of the dustjacket. I guess calling that book dinged means quality control measures are in place.
