Nice!
I noticed your limited A Feast For Crows (Voyager). I've got one as well.
Do you happen to know if Voyager released any other books of this series as a limited?

I'm not sure, though I wouldn't really be surprised. I found that one at a Half Price Books during a recent sale on the day that you could get any book 50% off. They were charging $29.99 for so I got it for $15. Not sure whether I should keep it or sell it, lol

Inspiring. This made me want to go out and purchase as many limited editions as possible.

Right now, I've got a large book collection, but most of them are comprised of leather bound volumes from the Easton Press. My Cemetery Dance collection consists of four books with one on the way.

Thanks for sharing.

Oops, forgot this part of my CD collection last night

Stephen King Characters Art Print signed by Glenn Chadbourne, CD Magazines 34, 50, 58-62, 64, and Grave Tales #4.

I still need to get a hold of CD #63. I think I might have gotten the last copies of 34, 58, and 59 because after I ordered those the next time I looked at the magazines on the website they were sold out. Either that or I got one of the last copies of them. Excited for the Limited Edition of #61 to get here soon

RJK1981
05-14-2011, 06:10 PM
I can only imagine how many more books I'd have if I had learned of CD before Blockade Billy. I didn't really start having this many Limited Edition until the past few months. I really wish I'd have had the money to purchase SOD Vol 1 as soon as I learned of this place as I believe they weren't quite sold out yet at the time. Now it'll cost me a good amount more to get a hold of most likely unless I get lucky

So many more titles I want to get a hold of but not enough money

One of things I hope to be able to afford one day is a very nice bookcase to show off my collection of limited edition books, preferable with a glass door to help keep the dust to a minimum. At the moment I can't afford to purchase one though, especially if I keep buying books, lol. I also would wait until I am moved as I'd want to secure that kind of bookcase to the wall. I also want to have a room to use a library and perhaps as a place to do writing, which I will likely be getting soon when I move in a few months. Whenever I get that and have it set up I probably will end up with pictures of that as well

Very nice collection amassed in such a short time. I highly recommend obtaining a copy of October Dreams as well. No CD collection would be complete without it in my opinion.

RJK1981
05-16-2011, 04:42 AM
That is one I hope to acquire, would love to get one of the signed copies though I'll probably have to settle with a trade edition for now since the signed copies I've seen for sale are out of my reach right now. I wouldn't want to actually read the signed one and risk ruining all those signatures, so I guess I need to get a trade edition copy anyway

05-16-2011, 01:34 PM
Wow, having no idea what October Dreams was, I did a quick search. Very impressive. That certainly would be the gem of any person's collection.

Martin
05-16-2011, 05:42 PM
I have only the signed edition of October Dreams but I have read it cover to cover and re-read parts every October. This is one of my favorite books of all time!

Thanks. I just wish I had Kealan Patrick Burke's The Hides so I could read that one and then read Vessels. I will likely not be getting that one anytime soon though as I haven't got the money available for books at the moment. At least I got to read The Turtle Boy and the CD Turtle Boy: Peregrine's Tale. I want to get a hold his The Number 121 as well

I agree with Justin Case; very cool collection! I have a large Stephen King collection consisting of 36 books. One day I'll post the pics.

RJK1981
06-17-2011, 04:58 PM
One of these days I will take a picture of my Stephen King collection, have 53 books of his that I haven't got listed up here, though 2 of those are in both PB and HC forms.

For now, here are 2 of the ARCs I got this week from the Early Reader's Club. Won't spill the beans on the others though since I am sure I am not supposed to anyway :p

First picture is of the 2 next to each other, while the 2nd is to show the size difference between the 2. Screamplays came in at close to 550 pages for the ARC!

Ok, well here a couple more pictures then. If it's decided that they should be removed, that is fine, lol. Once I finish Death Hunt on Ervoon I probably will check out Amazonas because I have never even heard of Alan Peter Ryan. Never heard of Lee Thomas either, so might have to check that one out afterwards.

Once I saw what books were headed my way I was hoping Four Legs in the Morning would be the signed one, and sure enough, it was.

Dan Hocker
06-17-2011, 07:00 PM
I hope you like them, it's a shame about Alan Peter Ryan though, he just passed away not that long ago. I was just trying to see if I could find an article or anything about it in google to link but couldn't.

Wow, completely forgot about that one. Once you mentioned that I remembered Brian Keene mentioning something about it on his site not too long ago. It apparently was reported on Shocklines, as well. Here is the link for the announcement from Brian Keene: http://www.briankeene.com/?p=7304

Finally got around to taking more pictures of my books. The first picture is a view of the 5 shelf bookcase I have in my bedroom, as well as some books that sit on the floor there.

184

This picture is a few books I forgot I put into a box in my bedroom closet. Only books from this picture I've read are the 2 on the bottom, The BTK Murders and "I" The Creation of a Serial Killer. I enjoyed both books, though BTK tended to be very repetitive, which got annoying.

Thanks, and no problem. As is probably obvious I like reading multiple types of books, though lately they've all been related to horror pretty much, except maybe Death Hunt on Ervoon. A lot of those books are still in my TBR pile. Most of the books in my box that I haven't organized at all yet are fantasy, many related to the Dragonlance world. Weiss & Hickman are a couple of my favorite authors for fantasy

Newest additions. Received Corpse Blossoms in the mail yesterday. Purchased a copy of A Dance With Dragons while I was at Target because they had a few 1st Edition/1st printings (they had 3 copies at one nearby Target and 4 at another, at least from what I was able to see)

Nice additions. I really need to pick up a copy of ADWD but like Frik I'm not in any hurry. BTW I ordered a copy of "Corpse Blossoms" and I'm really looking forward to reading it. It had some really great reviews and sounds like a cool book. Thanks for posting about it as I wouldn't have heard about it otherwise.

RJK1981
07-13-2011, 01:05 AM
Thanks. Wouldn't have gotten ADWD but since it's apparently on a 6th printing already I figured it'd be a decent investment if I never end up reading the series. And you're welcome about Corpse Blossoms, discovered it through Brian James Freeman's website I think, looking at where he had stories, then saw some of the other names inside and saw the positive reviews on Amazon and decided I'd get it at some point

Blu Gilliand
07-13-2011, 07:29 PM
Corpse Blossoms is awesome. The publisher, Creeping Hemlock Press (http://www.creepinghemlock.com/), puts out a lot of great stuff. They've got a new all-zombie line called "Print Is Dead" you should check out.

Decided to take some more pictures of a couple of my limited editions.

These 3 are from Brian Keene's newest book, Entombed. The cover art is by GAK, and interior art is by Glenn Chadbourne.

262264263

Cover of Shocklines Special Edition of A Priest of Blood by Douglas Clegg. I like the cover, but what I don't like is that the rest of the cover on the side and back is just black, so when it is sitting on the bookcase you can't tell what it is unless you already know.

Just went on a bit of a hunt to try and answer this the cover art is Vince Natale, the interior art is done by Earl Geier, Keith Minnion, GAK, and we think the last person is Glenn Chadborne, but there aren't any signatures on the art pages and no one can remember.....

Also thanks for posting the close ups of the slipcase. It's my favorite slipcase we've done. We where going to try and match the ILT slipcase to the same material, but we where not able to get the same material in a reasonable quantity. However I think we did a good job picking out a substitute, which I think you guys will like once they get done.

Could you share some more pics of In Laymon's Terms? Thinking about getting it and a closer look would be nice. How is it by the way? Does it include stories (fiction), or is it just parts of his personal collection (pics, etc.) and tributes to him?

RJK1981
07-25-2011, 09:31 PM
I certainly can do. I can't say how it is yet, as I have not begun reading it, except for the introductions. I am considering bringing it with me when I leave for vacation this weekend though. I already plan to bring a couple other books though too, so I am not sure if ILT will come with me or not.

These are the outside of the book, showing how thick this book is

There are stories and remembrances in the book. The table of contents if definitely long on the CD page for this one, but you can see even better from these pictures how much really is in this one.

291

Inside the area that is black on the outside of the book are some rarities of Laymon's and several pictures of him. This picture is definitely one of my favorite, but overall the pictures are great and I can see what a genuinely good and fun-loving person he was, which is what I always hear about him.

Newest books I have acquired. Have had them for a few weeks now, but moved, which meant I had to pack things up and cords to upload my pictures from my camera went into a box. Then I had no internet at my new place for a little while plus getting married and unpacking things have taken a lot of my time up, and that's not even including college classes, lol.

Haven't read these yet, but Calvin and Hobbes was one my favorite comic strips when I was younger. My wife (fiancee at the time) was getting rid of some books so I had to grab these. Definitely plan to look at these ones, possibly with my future children (whenever that may happen, not in a rush)

If you open up the book and look at the page design, you will see a black border like thing, that alternates between pages. What you're seeing on the top and bottom of the book, is that line where it meets the edge of the page.

Me and my wife had Christmas at my parents' place today with my small family (was only me, my wife, my parents, my sister and her boyfriend). Tomorrow we are doing lunch and gifts at her parents' place over lunchtime, and then dinner with her dad's side of the family, and then on Christmas we are going a couple hours away to do Christmas with my wife's mother's side of the family. Since we still have some food prepping to do tomorrow we decided to open gifts for each other tonight. While this one isn't all that I was getting for sure, it is the only one I didn't know she got me since we kinda picked our own presents mostly. Definitely is something I wanted and will enjoy

Here are two of pieces of art in the book, which consist of drawings of specific characters. I didn't take pictures of the female ones, but if anyone wants to see I can easily do take pictures and post them. Just looked at the rest and have to say that the artist did an especially craptastic job with the female characters (not that I am a fan of any of them, but the females are especially bad. Maybe he hates women? lol), though I am sure someone out there likes them (considering some people like random splotches of paint on blank canvases), just not my cup of tea at all.

Van Helsing

2581

A very bad image of Dracula

2582

Grant Wootton
12-26-2011, 07:02 PM
WTF !!!! Is the Count about to get arrested for public indecency !!!!! ;) Van Helsing looks like he'd be more at home at the local bank (and, no, not the blood bank).

Sorry, man, but the publisher that commissioned this guy to do the art weren't really switched on at the time - unless they were doing a Sesame Street styled release at the same time and gave the artists the wrong brief ???

Pity the kid who gets that one for a Xmas gift.

I got it for under $10 though and do plan on reading it at some point.

Yes, that would be the right artist. If that's his style I really don't care for it, at least not as something being included in a horror novel. If there is art in my horror books (which I think they should all have now that I've gotten used to seeing it in quite a few books thanks to CD) I want it to reflect the story and not be more cartoonish like those pieces.

These 2 little books (literally as they're quite small) came with Undertaker's Moon, which I thought was a very nice surprise bonus

Two from the Elemental series. Paul did that for me too. He's one of the ones who understands customer service. Those look like terrific titles!

Ah, ok, wasn't sure what they were from except something else they published. Would have been even cooler if they were the signed hardcover editions, lol. Of course, that wouldn't just be good customer service but also dumb business practices most likely, lol

Right now, his website says there's no softcover of hardcover books in the line for sale, but still 2 is a good haul!

Just received a couple packages with books in them. Got them all pretty cheap, though only one is a limited edition.

First up is The Gray Zone, which should be a quick read when I get to it. Have heard very good things about Little, though I haven't read anything from him yet

Wanted to get the limited edition of this one, but was only finding copies for more than I was willing to pay since I've never heard of this author before coming across this book a couple months ago

This one I got only because I want to become an author and have had seen more recommendation for this than most others. Have heard a lot of them for King's On Writing as well, but I already have that one. I also decided to get this to put my purchase price high enough to get free shipping, lol

Do you know if they are sold out then? No matter what the case is, I am definitely pleased by that gesture. Was my 2nd purchase from them (Maelstrom II being the first) and definitely won't be the last. I don't think it'll be like CD where I have ordered a majority of the books sold lately though. Though if I win the lottery I will definitely buy a lot more, lol

I'm guilty of adding something to an order just get"free" something or othe, too. But TCIGTWAN looks like a keeper! Nice Little--heard a lot about this author, need to read some of his stuff.

I have to tell you, those books still in the box? I heard them weeping. Get some shelves -- think of the books.

The cardboard box with paperbacks in it? They are slowly being brought out of the box. Still have to get around to putting them in my inventory database first, but have plenty of shelf room for them at the moment. Room is running out though (isn't it always for book collectors/lovers)

And here is the signature page. This is now the 2nd lettered book I own and have spent just over $50 combines for them both (of course the other one was a chapbook, but still, lol)

And that later print of Carrie looks sweet, they aren't easy to come by in those conditions either!

Second that on the Carrie! I love it, and I need to find a copy of Carrie myself. And really like the copy The Haunting....

Nice finds!

Thanks. Was surprised to find that copy of Carrie in that condition. Was able to get it for $10 which is actually more than half off the price on the DJ. It's just a 9th printing though, which is unfortunate, but that's ok. I have never read this one and really need to. Don't even have a paperback edition of it! I like that copy of the Haunting as well, first one of those I've seen actually.

And you're welcome Tom :)

It may be a later edition, but at least it's a hardback. I think my hardbacks of the first 4 books, came from the group of printings just before that set of cover designs. But they did complete my King in hardback collection.

Tito_Villa
02-15-2012, 03:42 PM
Noooo that is a first edition of that state, i'm pretty sure anyway. The 9th edition comes from all the doubleday printings they released since the first in 1974 :)

Picked up the Horror Hall of Fame from the post office today, so here are a small amount of shots. One thing I found odd when I opened it was that the DJ says trade edition and the $35 price, which made think I was sent the wrong copy until I turned to the signature page. Gonna have to send an e-mail asking about that in a sec. Have the same thing with my limited of Painted Darkness, though I got that one off of eBay and didn't notice it until a while later

Mine will just say Trade editionr $35. That's all I had at the time.

We typically use the same DJ for the trade and the limited editions, unless it's a high end book like a King book.

Ah, ok, thanks for clarifying that. Haven't purchased anything else that had trade and limited editions where I've gotten the limited so wasn't sure about that

No one seemed really all that sure why we did it that way. I think maybe in the early days of CD it wasn't really cost effective to do multiple DJ's. We're not really sure now as it's not very often we do both a trade and a limited. I think Brian was looking into it.

Martin

Some publishers who issue one dust jacket for the trade and limited display the retail of both on the dust jacket.

Yea, not really sure why we don't do that either. Although that might have more to do with the book distributors than anything else.

So far I only have 2 books that had a retail over $75 (With 2 others I'm waiting for from Lonely Road), including that signed copy of It. The other one being Bad News. Still surprised I was able to get a copy of that for only $139!

I didn't know Cemetery Dance or even Richard Laymon existed when Bad News came out. At the time I got lucky to win one on eBay for the price I got it for I had only seen it being sold for close to $500 and up. There are 2 copies on eBay right now that are under $300 though. Still makes me very happy I got it for the price I did

Oops, forgot this part of my CD collection last night

Stephen King Characters Art Print signed by Glenn Chadbourne, CD Magazines 34, 50, 58-62, 64, and Grave Tales #4.

I still need to get a hold of CD #63. I think I might have gotten the last copies of 34, 58, and 59 because after I ordered those the next time I looked at the magazines on the website they were sold out. Either that or I got one of the last copies of them. Excited for the Limited Edition of #61 to get here soon


How much did you get the Chadburne for? I wanted to bid on that SOOOO bad but couldnt.

RJK1981
02-19-2012, 01:35 AM
That was just an art print, so it wasn't expensive (think it was about $15 or maybe a little more, but can't really remember). Nothing like the artwork that was auctioned off which I cannot justify purchasing even though I have enough money right now

I've seen it sold before on eBay but knew nothing about it and didn't know who published it. Saw it again recently along with more info so I decided to go ahead and try to win it with a minimum bid of $3 I think it was. It was published by Nyx Publications, a publisher I'd never heard of until now

Thanks. Think I will do my Douglas Clegg collection next as he's the author I have the most signed book by and probably the 2nd most books total of any author. King will probably always be my largest collection, but not very many limited due to the prices. Will do more pictures soon but that might have to wait until Tuesday since I will probably be too busy tomorrow to do it
