I got the first grab bag of the year and every book is just beautiful. Unfortunately, I had 4 of them already, in different forms, but it was still worth the price for me.

They just offered a new grab bag that by the time I was aware of it, it was sold out apparently. I'm so bummed as this one had 4 never released books in it. Did anyone grab this? When you get it, will you share what you got?

THanks

I ordered it. First with be announced by the end of the month. I think it was the Novella one they said. Each book will be shipped as they come in so the shipping price was also reasonable but we will be waiting a while to find out what they all are.

You'll still be able to order them, just not at such a great price.

I often buy on impulse and could actually just as well do without - not this time: I passed.
(Hope I won't come to regret this.)

Just an FYI it's not a grab bag like the one you got. The titles ship seprately, it's basically a bundle, cheaper price, for 4 unannounced books, that you don't know what they are until we announce them and tell you you're getting them.

I'm really looking forward to being all sad and whiny when I see what I missed out on. :(Don't be sad you still can get the books and then be happy and broke like the rest of us.:o.We all know how tough it is to pass up an offer we all have our book regrets.Mine is when they came back in stock I did not get the signed In Lymons Terms.I still got the trade but the signed would have been real nice.

I love to fondle a new signed limited edition, but I'm more of a reader than collector. No offense to the authors, but I'll be listing my nonfiction Stephen King book on eBay "new & unread" soon after it arrives. I expect the other three to follow soon after I (gently) read them.

My apologies to the person who set-up a Grab Bag thread. I was going through back threads and found another one.

When I started this one, I plugged in the words "grab bag" to see if anything came up and nothing did, so I started this one. Sorry about that.

Yeah, but, BW - the more CD announcements to juggle, the better, I reckon :cool: Try correlating the season of publishing when you live in Australia (we're all bass-akwards down here, in the last three days of our summer, and you guys are, what, somewhere in winter, which we don't see for another three months, by which time you'll be in autumn/fall - DAMMIT, already lost track of where I am !!!! - is it Easter yet !!!!). Oh well, at the end of the day (whichever season the day happens to be in) I don't worry about when the CD book is to be published, so long as, at some point, I get an email saying that it's on it's way, I'm a happy, happy Aussie ...

Hey Mr. Woot, I just realized something. Easter is the first Sunday after the first full moon in Spring. Does that mean you guys celebrate is 6 months later? And if so, how stale is that candy??? Or will you celebrate in April like us and talk about birth and renewal as autumn starts?

And isn't awful celebrating Christmas & snowmen during the middle of summer?

Hehehehehe ... Nope, we'll likely celebrate Easter the same as the rest of the rational world (looking forward to it, as Easter Saturday is my 50th and Connie and I are spending the weekend down in the Hunter Valley touring the wineries and having ourselves a hot air balloon ride) - not so sure about the whole birth and renewal contemplation thing though, will likely just get shitfaced instead ;)

Yes, but wouldn't you want them without the lead? They are pretty small, so the lead would kind of ruin the meat, especially since we don't know how steady of a hand that cat has. Probably not very steady since it lacks an opposable thumb :p

What a mouth on you Mr. Wooten! Last weekend I caught the end of the David Mamet movie "Heist" on regular TV and what a hoot that was. If you aren't familiar with Mamet's work (and if you aren't, go out immediately and watch "Glengarry Glen Ross") most of his work is, um... let's just call it profanity laden. Anyway, on the safe for TV version, one of the characters calls another a "cork soaking mother father".

03-01-2012, 08:02 PM

TerryE
03-01-2012, 08:12 PM
Glengarry Glen Ross, starring Al Pacino, Jack Lemmon, Alan Arkin, Ed Harris, Kevin Spacey, Alec Baldwin, and Jonathan Pryce. About the pressures of being a slimy real estate salesman. Brilliant dialogue and a cast that can't be beat. One of my all time favorite movies, and one I can watch over and over and over again.

Martin
03-01-2012, 11:05 PM
Let's just say that I have the ability to convince someone that what I am telling them is true no matter how far fetched. In the case of the co-worker several people kept telling her that I was just messing with her and as soon as she was sure I was telling a lie I would convince her I was telling the truth. This went on for several days.

It is there but you have to find it. If you go to the complete catalog and then look under the author you will find it.
I know what it is already but I still don't see it on the CD site.

Official announcement to come tomorrow.

For easy reference, the previously sold 2012 Forthcoming Grab Bag will include the following items (plus i've written up some notes for general reference):

* the first one we'll ship is part of the acclaimed Cemetery Dance Novella Series -- this has been announced and is Snow Shadows by Mick Garris, it should be published in the next couple of months

* the largest book will be an Oversized 700 page Signed Limited Edition Anniversary Edition by one of our most popular authors -- this will be announced next week and will be published by the end of summer

* another is the brand new trade hardcover by one of the first authors we ever published in Cemetery Dance magazine -- this will be announced in the next 6 weeks and will be published in the fall

* And finally, later this year we'll be publishing a book about Stephen King's work by two of our most popular Stephen King experts, and the signed Limited Edition will only be available for preorders for ONE MONTH when the book is announced, but those who bought the 2012 Forthcoming Grab Bag already have a copy reserved for them. This will be announced this summer and published at the end of the year.

Is there a way to avoid duplicates in the Artwork Grab Bag?

If you want I can make a special note on your order like I did for some people with the misfit grab bag. However with the art print grab bag I can't make any promises. So if you've gotten all or most of art prints there's really no way to promise no duplicates. So like before if anyone wants to buy one but not get duplicates, shoot me an email with which art prints you already have and your order number. I will make a note on your order. If you would like to know ahead of ordering if you are likely to get duplicates go ahead and email me before hand.

For those of you who don't know what the art print grab bag is, it'll be going out to the regular news letter today.
