Might have to get Currency of Souls when I get money. I still wanna get a hold of The Number 121 as well, though I might still stick with finding a HC copy. Knowing how I am with short story collections (I have a few, mostly from CD, but I am not good about actually reading them. I still haven't even finished Shivers VI or any of the other large collections I have gotten, lol) it isn't a high priority though.

Do you read eBooks? The Turtle Boy is free on Amazon Kindle (Don't need an actual Kindle to read it either), or 4.99 for the whole Timmy Quinn series, which starts with Turle Boy.

CD's version of THE NUMBER 121 is far and away the superior one, and easily one of my all-time favorite books. It's a gorgeous edition. If you can track it down, definitely try and snag a copy.

And I'm with you on collections. I'm the same. I think, unlike novels, they exist to be savored bit by bit over time. I have some collections and anthologies here that I've been reading for ten years.

Hey thanks, TJ, and I'm glad you found me! As others have said here, I would recommend KIN or THE TURTLE BOY as good places to start. If you do take the chance, I hope you enjoy them!

I do plan to get it, though not sure when yet. Need money first. Will end up having to make room for it on one of my bookcases that has contains all my Signed Limited Editions and unsigned books from companies like Cemetery Dance, but that shouldn't be a problem since I still have some non-small press hardcovers on one of the bookcases. Will probably wait until I move somewhere else though as I will need to purchase another bookcase as well anyway since I am running out of room (less than a shelf left, lol) and have over 20 books on orde still!

I did read King's Full Dark, No Stars straight through without switching to something else between stories, but that is the only collection that has happened with, and was partly because I was just hanging out with my girlfriend (Who I married less than a year later) as well as taking care of her since she had seriously hurt her ankle not too long before Christmas and there was no way she was going anywhere like that and needed help with doing most things since she couldn't walk. That also allowed her family to be able to keep their plans instead of cancelling at the last minute. Don't think either of us will forget that one, lol, was our first Christmas together. Was also the first (and so far only) King collection I have read. I'm sure if it wasn't for the circumstances surrounding it I wouldn't remember when it was I read that collection though. Had to guess on when I read a few books when marking them as read on Goodreads.

Oh, and I would agree with Kin being a good start too. Still reading it, but am loving it. Would be finished by now, but took November off from reading pretty much due to NaNoWriMo and finally have started reading a lot again a couple days ago. Read a little when at my in-laws, but had finished part one of Kin at the end of Oct. so I figured I was at the perfect stopping point and didn't want to start and not continue the next part.

I found a good price on the CD S/L of 121, but I also need to save money. But I could get the pb from B&N for around 5 bucks all told--seriously thinking on it.

But Kin is an outstanding read!

Oh, I will grab one eventually. It's great to be able to diversify on the authors I am reading, and I 100% can attribute that to finding the CD website/forums.

This is exactly the predicament in which I find myself. I recently reacquired three large boxes from my ex-wife's basement, and there are about 300 books in them, which would be fine if my shelves weren't already sagging under the weight of those I already have. But while good sense advises I hold off book buying until I find homes for the current titles, I can't seem to do it.

That's one I read all the way through too. An excellent collection. I think I always end up reading King's stuff straight through. Same with Joe Hill's collection 20TH CENTURY GHOSTS, which was superb.

Well, as of now Powell's does not have your paperbacks. They did have a limited edition of Currency of Soul's for $25.00 that I almost bought. Ended up passing due to book condition. I would rather pick up a paperback then a beat up limited.

Yeah, CD is good for that. I have discovered and become a fan of a lot of authors through Cemetery Dance, andit all started with King's Blockade Billy. My second purchase was either Simon Clark's King Blood (which was gutsy since I had never even heard of him before, lol) or Blatty's Exorcist/Legion book. Dicovered Brian Keene through my first grab bag.

I discovered Burke through CD as well, though I didn't read a CD title of his first, found a good deal on a Turtle Boy HC. I still don't know how I got that lucky, don't think it was an eBay swipe, though it was from there.

I think it's easier nowadays to get a copy of TTB. I just won a copy on eBay for about $15. A few years ago, I'd have been lucky to get one for ten times that. I think digital availability has affected the second hand value of the titles. Makes me feel bad for the collectors, but honestly I just want people to be able to read the books.

I would agree, plus with the down economy prices likely dropped a lot. I don't remember right now what I got Turle Boy for, but I think it was around that, maybe even less. The cheapest I'd seen for that at the time was around $65-70, closer to $100 for one in new condition.

I am a collector, but I got into the game late, so a lot of what I have gotten has been for pretty cheap. I'm also not a hard core collector as I will read most of my signed limited editions. I will never read my limited edition of the the 25th anniversary edition of It that CD did. I do plan to read my copy of the gift edition though

I know what you mean. I'll buy signed limiteds, but I read them all, which devalues them immediately, but that's fine by me. I don't buy books with the intent to resell them.

Martin
12-20-2012, 08:05 PM
I buy limited editions for the stories and the production quality. I do not buy a book I would be unwilling to read. I am careful with my books no matter the edition because I want them to continue to look good and to last. Much to my wife's chagrin I have no interest in selling my books.

That's how I am too, which is part of the reason I am not a fan of the mass market books, especially paperbacks. I did buy a signed edition of the IT 25th anniv. from CD that I will never read though. Not when I have the gift edition of that as well.

12-20-2012, 10:58 PM
I read my gift edition of It and left my S/L/N one alone in its traycase. More and more I find myself buying s/l editions of books, then when I decide to read them, go out an buy a paperback version. I did this with Under the Dome and most recently American Psycho.

So if anyone is looking for an inexpensive reading copy they are out there now. Also amazon still has The Turtle Boy for free.

Hey thanks Tommy! I'm quite fond of "Cobwebs". As for acting, I was supposed to play a role in Debbie Rochon's directorial debut but had to back out because of other commitments. But sure, it's always fun getting to go before the camera and make a fool of myself, so I'd always be up for more roles. I'm not actively seeking any at the moment though. I just take these things as they come.

Loved Kin. Took longer than planned to finished since I took a whole month off from reading for the most part when I was doing NaNo, but finished it earlier this year. I actually switched from reading my ARC to my signed HC as I gifted the ARC to my now brother-in-law for Christmas.

That's great, RJ! Thanks for passing it along!

I'm actually at work on a sequel as we speak...

Thanks guys!

I won't give too much away this early, but I can tell you that it picks up some time after Kin, and focuses on Chester "Beau" Beaumont, addicted to painkillers and given to frequent hallucinations of his deceased friend Finch, after barely escaping Hood Mountain with his life. He is hired by Kara Lambert to find her sister Claire, whose psychological issues have only deepened in the years since the Elkwood Incident, leading to a conviction that she has found the whereabouts of Luke Merrill, the only surviving member of the Merrill clan. Claire believes that the only way to get her life, and her sanity back, is to confront Luke and kill him. As his chemical dependency worsens and the line between real and unreal begins to blur, Beau's efforts to find Claire takes him back to Elkwood and Hood Mountain, and on to Florida, to Durance, a rural community maddened and yet thriving on the production of crystal meth. There he will unravel secrets and fight to survive the darkness that almost claimed him once and may already have claimed Claire.

Sounds awesome and almost like you've taken a tour of my home state of South Carolina, which by the way would make a great cameo location in the sequel, plenty of meth-addicted, murderous rednecks lurking in the woods around these parts, just saying :cool:

A lot of rural areas are like that these days, it seems. As research for the new novel I recently read Nick Reding's Methland, and it was a hell of an eye-opener.

sadly, I could probably right a part 2 to Methland without ever having read it, just when I thought drugs couldn't get any scarier, bath salts start making the rounds and people start getting their faces chewed off, great fodder for horror stories but not so great in real life, but anyway, can't wait for your sequel and I hope you publish through Cemetery Dance cause they are great!

The worse an economy gets, the more viable drugs become as a profitable industry. It has actually saved rural communities from destruction, albeit seeding long term destruction of another kind.

When I read the part about the community surviving thanks to meth I was wondering if you got the idea for that from Methland or something since I saw you had been reading it on Goodreads. After reading the description of that one on Goodreads I decided I wanna check it out sometime. I don't read many non-fiction books, but do enjoy them. Enjoy true-crime books. Read "I" The Creation of a Serial Killer in one day I was so interested in it. Having half of it coming from the serial probably played a role in that. Also loved Killing Pablo about the hunt for the drug lord Pablo Escobar. It's amazing how towns thrive thanks to what someone does for it thanks to money made from illegal drugs and how towns will protect people like that. The way he lived in prison was amazing too. I don't know if that would be useful as research in writing a novel, but I imagine "I" The Creation of a Serial Killer could be useful in that you can discover how a serial killer feels/thinks.

And no problem in sharing Kin, thanks for writing it! Not sure if that has been read by the BIL yet, they are down in FL so I don't get much chance to talk to him. I also recommended they get The Turtle Boy too since my sis has herself an eReader

Hey RJ: I actually read Methland after deciding to incorporate meth addiction and culture into the Kin sequel. The book came highly regarded, so that, along with a few documentaries, and my recent trip to Florida, aided immensely in research. I'll also keep an eye out for those other books you mentioned. Thanks!

Thanks Mr. Kealan! Just bought and downloaded Kin from Smashwords. Was introduce to your work via Master of the Moors when you did the e-book serial. Really kept me on toes waiting for each chapter. But didn't have a card then or I would've gotten The Turtle Boy and your other limited editions as well.

I am ascending you the the ranks of my favorite authors where you'll be rubbing elbows with the likes of Stephen King, Ronald Kelly, Michael Moorcock, Umberto Eco, and Mark Helprin! :cool::cool::cool:

Hey Larry: Because of the weekly episodic format in which I originally wrote MASTER OF THE MOORS, I was unable to go back and change things for continuity sake. So when it came time to reissue the book, I was able to clean it up a lot, and tighten it. The original "asylum" prologue is gone, and overall the book just flows better now.
