HA! My mother still wonders what the big deal with horror stories is. Of course, she's been wondering about that since at least 1973, when she caught me reading HP Lovecraft!

lol, I was born in '81. My mom definitely wouldn't enjoy horror, but that's ok, lol. She doesn't do any reading anymore hardly because of her eyes, but I know she used to, just not stuff I would have enjoyed! I definitely wouldn't show her some stuff I read and plan to write. Might not even show her the story I am slowly working on that I started for NaNoWriMo, though it is not horror. Just might not agree with her religious views, lol. Then again, what I am writing isn't meant to be offensive and she's got more of an open mind about some things than when I was a little kid. I think if she didn't have more of an open mind she likely wouldn't approve of that shirt and wouldn't have bought it for me!

Great gift! My parents are open minded enough to care very little about what I read as kid, and neither are very religious (if at all), but neither liked horror as well.

Born in 1977. Horror wasn't allowed in the house. Got busted once when I tried to sneak in a copy of McCammon's Stinger (the one with the claw coming out of the ground on the cover). I had to resort to just reading the jacket info at the library. Sometimes those were scarier than the actual book!

I'm a 1973 also - I honestly never read much as far as novels go - I was into I did like stuff revolving around dinosaurs (but what kid doesn't!), but was more of a TV/video gamer (go Colecovision!) than a reader, although my Dad had a huge sci-fi book collection (sci-fi book club) of stuff like Asimov, Clarke, the Star Trek and Star Wars books, Anne McAffery (sp?). I do remember trying to tackle Dragon Riders of Pern as a grade school kid for a read-a-thon....didn't get far. Book order forms at school usually resulted in ordering a dinosaur or nature book or a Garfield comic book.

I kind of wish a was encouraged to read more as a kid, as I really missed out on a lot I think now. I even worked at a small independant book store as my first job at 16 or 17 years old, but still never got into reading much - meanwhile I had the chance at new releases, etc. Idiot!!!

Got my newest book from a Goodreads win (that I didn't know I'd won, lol) and the newest CD magazine last week but got distracted when I was going to post pics. Figured I'd post pics now before I get my package tomorrow. Also realized I forgot to post a pic of an ARC I won from Darkfuse.

Cool stuff. I am half way through the new Cemetery Dance magazine. As well as the new Dark Discoveries magazine. Both are great so far...however the Bentley Little story in Dark Discoveries I like better than the one in Cemetery Dance.

Very cool collection! Saw a few Rick Hautala's in there, and I can't recommend his best of short story collection, Glimpses, highly enough. I'm even trying to get my mom to read the story 'A Good Day for Dragons' found within.

I am now also convinced that I am the only person on the planet who doesn't have the limited CD edition of It, though how that's possible I'm not sure. I did manage to get a copy of the gift, and tried for the limited once on ebay but got priced out at the end. I am jealous of everyone in the world.

Ha, the limited of IT is a great thing. Likely going to be the only Limited Stephen King book I'll ever have though. The gift editions are great too.

I have a copy of Glimpses on my Kindle that I have yet to read. I'll probably get to it at some point, but don't do all that well with reading books of short stories

You guys are absolutely right, the gift editions of IT are super-cool, and I'm extremely happy with mine. To quote Frasier Crane, "If less is more, just think of how much more more would be." I just caught on to the whole thing a little too late and missed my shot at the limited. My favorite King book, and the CD limited looks just like money.

Glimpses is horror, but it reaches your heart. I saw you purchased John R. Little's The Grey Zone, and it performs in a similar way. Brilliant, scary and touching.

Ha, he has written it. A chapter from it is in the PB of The Twelve as a bonus. From what I understand it has been delayed in the US til after this year, though I am not completely sure, but I do know it isn't even listed on Amazon.com. It is listed on Amazon.co.uk as coming out there this coming October, which I though I also saw on the US site in the past.

Got this in the mail a couple days ago. Got it for free from the author in exchange for an honest review. Read the first couple chapters of it today and am liking it so far, so that's good. It's Science Fiction, so not what I have mainly been reading lately, but I am a fan of the genre. And heck, just finished Prophet of the Ghost Ants, which is also not the type of book I have been reading lately. Definitely enjoyed reading that one

Ah, ok, never knew that about the number line. Either way, I know it is a first since it also says first edition further up. Not that it matters, that book isn't going to be a collectible

I remember watching that movie too and being very upset by it, of course I was really young, later on I saw Henry:Portrait of a Serial Killer, which is loosely based on Ottis Toole and Henry Lee Lucas and was further disturbed by the whole thing, even though Adam's death isn't dealt with in that movie, it's still creepy to this day

It's called simply Adam. Probably freaked out every parent who saw it. I know mine were paranoid after the abduction. I was eight years old when it happened and ten when the TV movie aired.

Awesome, thanks! Now if only the TV in my living room was a Smart TV, then I could watch the Youtube videos right on my TV. I do have the ability to view webpages since I have a PS3 hooked up to it though, so I may have to see if that would work for me as I'd obviously rather watch on my TV

You can watch youtube videos through your PS3. There's a youtube app, it's pretty great, you can even control it through a smartphone if you have one.

I'd ask how to control the Youtube app from my phone, but I am quite sure I'll be able to figure that out without too much trouble when I actually get around to watching these, which will likely not be for more than a week since I am going to be going up to the cabin Sat. morning

Wow, this got here today! Was definitely not expecting it to get here until I was already on vacation since the projected arrival a couple days ago said the 28th. Decided to see if it still said the 28th today only to find out it now said it would get here today! I go to see if it was outside the door only to find it got here before my wife left to go shopping with her mom to get food for up at the cabin and that the package got here before she left. Now I have more thinking to do about what books to bring with me, lol. Most likely I will be bringing this one, though I'm not entirely sure yet.

Nope, didn't ruin my vacation at all. :) I can't do what I normally would have done due to having MS, but I went up on vacation to get away from most distractions and do a lot of reading and playing cards with my wife's family. If I didn't have the issues that I have I likely would have done some fishing as well. I brought a few movies to possibly watch, and I watched none of them. I did watch one movie, but it wasn't one I brought. I also watched a little TV, but not much, probably 5-6 hours for the entire week, plus an hour and half for the movie.

Good luck with that. I got lucky when I found a lettered copy of Keith Minnion's chapbook, Down in the Boneyard on eBay. Haven't gone searching for it since, but have only seen it for sale there one other time. Can't remember how Keith said people got them originally, but think it came with a certain book order or something like that. Think it was the last lettered chapbook from them, so a lot of people probably wish they had it :D:cool:

Yeah, it is pretty cool. I've never encountered that part before, but I also don't get much from Thunderstorm since I usually don't have the book money for the ones I would want. Not to mention their print runs are so small of some of their lines.

These arrived in the mail today. Keith Minnion offered me these PC copies with a remarque for a fair price after seeing some of my collection in an album I created over on Facebook. I couldn't refuse the offer, of course, since I love Keith's artwork. The post office caused a little bit of damage to one, but oh well, didn't buy these with the intent to sell them. I'm sure that if I had paid a lot of money for them I would care more though.

Yeah, wasn't sure what the remarques would be, but I didn't care, I couldn't pass the offer up. These are my first remarques, but hopefully not my last ones! Would love more remarques from him and others, like Chadbourne. I'd say Keith and Glenn are probably my top 2 artists. Of course, Alex McVey, Canigula, Jill Bauman, and Vincent Chong are excellent as well and wouldn't mind remarques from them either.

After the packages yesterday I got this today :D

1576415765

Been wanting this for a while. Would have gotten it from Thunderstorm, but by the time I had the money to spend on it, they were sold out. After getting this and books from yesterday I am only missing one of Ron's essentials line. Hopefully will be able to swing buying Twelve Gauge soon. Will eventually have to hunt down Hindsight.

Definitely. Probably not going to be having much more coming in for a while, just Ron's Twelve Gauge and the next Maelstrom set after it's ready

This arrived on Saturday, thanks to Kim at Camelot :D

Only have one that is not currently on my shelf, which is Twelve Gauge, which Ron will be sending back to me shortly :D

I am amazed at how quickly Twelve Gauge sold out considering Pitfall, the previous Essentials book, is still available at the publisher

That is odd. However, you'd be surprised at how often people forget to check the publisher's website, just assuming a given title is sold out and going right to eBay and overpaying.

Yeah, I've seen plenty of Centipede Press titles listed in eBay for over the retail price even though the book isn't sold out! The publisher's site is where I look first as I'd rather give my money to the publisher unless the price is low enough. I especially prefer the publisher over people saying they need the money when they obviously have the money since I know how much things costed and they say it for everything

Surprised by the low print run, though the run was determined by pre-orders. I was expecting something along the lines 100-150. This is one of the lowest runs I have for a numbered book. It's not the lowest though

that's cool, There's a new limited edition of an old Edward Lee book being done by Necro Publications that only has a 52 numbered run right now http://necropublications.myshopify.com/products/sacrifice-by-edward-lee and now that I look, it's sold out but Camelot still has copies http://camelotbooks.com/books/detail/sacrifice2

The numbered edition of Jeffrey Thomas's Lost in Darkness (also by Bad Moon) is an edition of 42 for the same reason.

Nice adds. Bad moon Books tends to do very small hard cover releases most always under 100 copies. Don't know why but that seems to be the norm on most but not all of their book releases.

They only print enough copies to cover preorders. They'd probably get more interest if they advertised a bit, even just some social media stuff, but the only time I know to order something from them is when an author plugs their own books.

That's how I first found out about the book. I did see it mentioned on the Bad Moon Facebook page, but Saw it first from Keith. Didn't know they mainly did smaller print runs since I don't typically buy their books. Only have one other that I can think of right now, which is John Little's book Scavenger Hunt

At least Bad Moon has a Facebook page. I wish Thunderstorm had one, but have not seen one from them.

Thunderstorm has a newsletter they send out when new stuff is up for order. However, I think you need to be a book club member to get early notice, because every email I've gotten has announced that something is shipping and a few are left to purchase.

I'm on their newsletter list, but yeah, don't get early notifications for most things of theirs. I'd be interested in membership with them, but I don't have that kinda money available for buying books.

Got deliveries today, which I wasn't quite expecting. I was expecting my latest win from eBay, but I also got a delivery from Ronald Kelly and my latest win from LibraryThing. First off though, I recently got Pure from CD and my Halloween postcard delivery from Deena Warner that I've gotten recently.

Ronald included the audio book with Twelve Gauge. Haven't seen a cassette tape in a while, lol. Don't have a cassette player, but wouldn't open it if I did most likely, lol, will just add it to Ronald Kelly collection. Still a couple other books I want to get a hold of at some, like his Thunderstorm edition of After The Burn, though that'll likely have to wait a while. Might get the paperback edition at some point, as I'll have the money for that sooner.

Nice additions. Looking at the Clegg book myself. I loved the production values of Pure but the story did not grab me. I have decided to pass on the other books in the series.
