    I'll have to ask my daughter; she'd know. Probably look at me sideways wondering way I'm inquiring LOL.

    I just don't think most guys are, Martin. Not a sexist thing, just a point of fact. Unless we are, "enticed" into said tub

    Well I have this board and Jeffingoff to thank for this one now being in my collection.

    I have regretted buying this book since it was first released and I passed. I recently mentioned that on this board and Jeffingoff sent a link to an eBay auction of the book. The reality is I was well aware of that auction as I have been watching it not sell for quite some time. The price was above what I was willing to pay. That link got me thinking, it has been for sale for quite some time, maybe they would take a lower offer. I made my offer and it was accepted.

    I am happy to have this book in my collection now.

    Bad News Edited by Richard Laymon:

    This edition has a fantastic slipcase and is signed by all contributors.

    Great add with Bad News. Martin I was one of the lucky ones who got the postcard in my box. I was wondering why it wasn't mentioned on the card. I really love Nocturnal Readers Box. Thinking about enemy subscription when it runs out or asking the Mrs. to renew it again for my Christmas gift.

    I paid a little more than issue price for a book that is in "Like New" condition 17 years after issue so I am very pleased and I will cherish this book! Thanks again for the nudge, I am thrilled to have it in my collection!

    Glad you got the post card, I can't complain as I more than got my value from the box.

    Great add with Bad News. I honestly think it has one of the coolest covers. Definitely a conversation starter!

    No shame here. I can bath bomb with the best of them!

    Peter Straub is always hit and miss for me. When one of his story clicks with me it is fantastic (Ghost Story, Hellfire Club, Lost Boy:Lost Girl). When they are a miss for me they are often my "worst reads" for the year (Mr. X, A Dark Matter) .

    I read his novella "A Special Place:The Heart of a Dark Matter" with low expectations as I did not care for the novel that this is an offshoot to. I read this last spring and the story has stuck with me. I absolutely loved it:

    P1360906.jpgP1360907.jpg

    With that said I reluctantly passed on the novella 'The Process (Is A Process All It's Own)' when it was announced by Subterranean Press. This is another venture into the world of 'A Dark Matter'.

    Then the fine folks at CD offered the Sub Press edition at a discount and I went for it.

    I am just over half way through and so far it is not really working for me. Hopefully that will change as I wrap up the story.
