Great collection! They all have to start somewhere. :) I really like your copy of Nightmares and Dreamscapes.

Pete - I believe it is the British cover, which is cool. Ordered it, expecting a paperback, yet to my surprise..... :cool:

Hey TJ - is that a US or UK paperback of 'Salems Lot'? Great cover.

TJCams
01-07-2013, 12:09 PM
Lincoln - That would be the US cover - purchased that at a local bookstore here in Windsor Canada. Unless of course a cover will differ from US to Canada, which I doubt. :)

Yes The Nightmares and Dreamscapes book was the one I went wow to also.Very nice stuff.

I still haven't got to Nightmares & Dreamscapes yet - it is certainly near the top of the TBR list. However, as well as know, those things change all the time! Not bad for $1.05 eh!

And the latest arrival to my collection.... 11694

I have not read that one either but I found a copy just like that in my tiny Podunk hometown's Dollar General mixed in with very cheap romance and suspense novels for $3

I have read The Teratologist and His Pain and White is one sick mamajama, can't wait to read more!

TJCams
02-19-2013, 07:45 PM
Went to bank on Friday, to get some US $ to go grocery shopping - low and behold, on the used book sale table, grab myself a copy of Christine by King. :)

And....arrived today from AbeBooks - Contagion by Robin Cook

TJCams
02-27-2013, 08:37 PM
Another CD add for my bookshelf, and soon to be read likely.... I also believe, aside from the one chapbook I have, this is my first signed numbered book! :) Thanks CD!!!!

Here are some e-book titles I have added to my Kobo, so that counts as my collection too right????

I love Ramsey Campbell even though I've only read short stories so far, I think he is amazing and unique

That will be on the top of the list to read after I finish with Torn.

Kobo had a trivia contest, and each day you answered correctly they sent you a coupon code for different % off an e-book. I saved a few of the bigger coupons and picked up:

All by authors I have not yet read. :)

The Fleshless Man is a good read but Invisible Fences from Mr. Prentiss is a great read. I have heard a lot of positive about Gifune and Malfi but have not read them yet.

you have heard correct.Both are great writers.If people take advantage of the offer in the other thread and join the dark fuse ebook club they can read alot of their stuff for a great price.

Love the book. My books are going to be delayed.One that I ordered is out of stock.So I decided to wait and have them both shipped together.

04-12-2013, 07:02 PM
If the sale is still on Monday, I will grab a couple small ones probably. They marked down everything to 50% now I believe.

Tommy
04-13-2013, 04:15 PM
Nice additions! thanks for the info about the DRP sale, I passed because I have so many preorders and other books on hand to read that I would simply be being greedy at this point

TJCams
04-15-2013, 12:17 PM
I don't really need any more books right now, but with the price on some of the more interesting titles (at least for me), I may grab 1 or 2 more.

bookworm 1
04-16-2013, 12:53 AM
Not me. I am not getting anymore from the sale. I need to down size more. So far I have been doing well. Just wish I had not signed up for the e horror site. Now my kindle is filling up fast.:)

I've been trying to contact DRP about the staus of my order and they haven't responded yet...

TJCams
04-16-2013, 01:31 PM
I was surprised how quick my order arrived. Figured they would wait until end of sale. I bet they are pretty swamped with the final push as they call it to get to the 1000 donations.

Theli
04-17-2013, 06:17 AM
I think they were waiting to get some stuff from the printers. I had a minor delay recently and he had explained they had changed printers and had caused some unexpected delays. They take care of you though, I got an extra book free for my troubles. You can check on the status of your parcel on the website too if you log in. I'm waiting on some stuff still too.

srboone
04-17-2013, 07:48 AM

I never ended up placing another order. I really really wanted The Harmony Society by Waggoner - I read The Men Upstairs and it was pretty darn cool. I also wanted Voyeurs of Death and Tales of the Weak and Wounded.

Yep..... got a messed up taste I guess!

TJCams
05-31-2013, 08:20 PM
Embassytown may be next on my list after I finish The Stickmen, or Hyperion.

The good thing about AbeBooks, and me being more of a reader as opposed to collector is you get books, that are usually in new condition for around $1.00 with good shipping rates too. That humungous Anathem cost me $1.05.

As is probably pretty obvious, I am more of a reader as opposed to collector, so I have no problem grabbing a cheap used book - more times than not, they are in great shape.

So, the last few days, I've spent going through things in my house - we have an annual block sale on street where a bunch of neighbours have our individual yard sales. I was looking for various items, books included, and came across this - which I forgot I even had.....

You know, I tried, I kept plugging away at the paperback version I have - just couldn't finish it. May revisit it at some point, but I actually lent it to my Dad who is a big sci-fi fan (mostly space related stuff like Clarke, Asimov), but he said he'd give it a go and see how it is.

This autographed version will most likely go up for sale either on here or good ol' eBay. It's 1st edition too!!!!!

Stopped at a used book store in Detroit (actually Southgate) on the weekend - it's an old Border's store ( a small one ) that turned into an Ukazoo - well they are closing now too.....

Grabbed a nice, like new, hardcover of Thunderhead by Preston & Child, and a very good condition pb of The Songs of Distant Earth by Arthur C Clarke - total of about $7.00. Pics will follow soon.

I actually like the PB cover of Thunderhead better, but for the price and condition - how could I pass it up!!! It will be first Preston/Child.

11-25-2013, 08:53 PM
I've been looking for a nice copy of thunderhead but the only ones I come across have yellowed pages and are beat up.

TJCams
11-26-2013, 12:49 PM
I haven't read it, but the overviews I've seen sound like it's a very fun read. I want to branch out a bit from sci-fi/horror, or science type reads. One other one I want to get a good copy of (for cheap hopefully) is the first in the Sigma Force series by James Rollins - Subterranean

Joe315
11-26-2013, 01:37 PM
Subterranean is his first book (as Rollins). Sandstorm is the first of the Sigma series. Subterranean wasn't originally published in hardcover. A hardcover release of his first three books were done recently, however.

TJCams
11-26-2013, 03:07 PM
That Sigma series looks good - I want to start from book 1. Yet, I also want to get into the Pendergast series too - and Thunderhead is NOT part of that.

Joe315
11-26-2013, 09:53 PM
No but there are characters on this one that are in the Pendergast series. On thing that is cool about their books is that they all take place in the same universe.

So, this weekend there was a large used book sale for a local Raise A Reader literacy campaign, at a big outlet mall in town (in a store that is no longer open). I will get pics, but I grabbed the following: Needful Things HC, Bag of Bones HC, Tommyknockers HC, Clive Barker Weaveworld HC, and my first Laymon book - To Wake The Dead HC. :) Also grabbed 3 or 4 Robin Cook HC books for my wife, as well as Tell No One by Harlan Coben.

I discovered it on Goodreads somehow - it does sound like a pretty cool story. Not sure when I will get to it.

And today's arrival, via AbeBooks (although I prefer the other version of the cover....)

This cover was, IMO, a blatant attempt to resemble the covers of Pocket's Robert McCammon novels, most especially Swan Song, which the tagline referenced. (I personally thought Fire was pretty awful. Certainly not in the same class as Swan Song or The Stand.)

15166

Hunter

TJCams
05-09-2014, 12:58 PM
I, sadly (yes I know...), have not read Swan Song yet...

As I said, I stumbled upon Fire on Goodreads where it shows you similar books, or whatever it is. It isn't high on my TBR list, but wanted to give it a look, and thought the cover was cool in a simplistic way.
15167

Now, seeing your post.....WOW, very similar indeed, and no doubt intentional.

TJCams
05-27-2014, 04:26 PM
Just arrived today - my latest Goodreads win.... ARC of an author I just stumbled upon somehow

15223 15222

I loved Hunter Shea's Forest of Shadows - got it for my Kobo from Samhain - If you haven't checked out his stuff yet, I suggest you give him a try.

Theli
05-27-2014, 06:22 PM
Cool, hadn't heard of him. Nice add.

srboone
05-30-2014, 02:40 PM
Nice. Another author I'm not familiar with.

TJCams
06-02-2014, 03:16 PM
I found him via Samhain Publishing - have a lot of e-books and also print too. I really enjoyed his Forest of Shadows - I'd give him a try if you have a chance.

bugen
06-03-2014, 01:55 AM
TJ I stumbled on Samhain a while back because of a John Everson tweet and picked up a few books during a 60% off sale, including Shea's Forest of Shadows and Evil Eternal. The only 1 of the group I've read so far is Maynard Simms' The Eighth Witch, but he was a new author to me and I dug the book (a lot). Been meaning to read Evil Eternal for weeks now. It seems they're doing something right over there... maybe Samhain has a finger on the pulse.

TJCams
06-16-2014, 07:03 PM
And, didn't post this, but I do own a copy, and am reading it now....

Very nice! Haven't read Imajica yet.

TJCams

Very nice! Haven't read Imajica yet.

I see on Goodreads you gave Weaveworld a very high rating. Would you say Barker is pretty easy to read?

srboone
06-18-2014, 03:20 AM
I find him easy to read, but I sometimes find his stuff is quirky for the sake of being quirky. Weaveworld is a good example. But it still is a marvelous fantasy and provocative statement on the nature of art.

TJCams
06-18-2014, 01:19 PM
OK - Thanks for that. I was pretty sure Barker was as you said. I read Cabal years (lots of years!) ago (after seeing Nightbreed).

I think the reason why I keep not reading Anathem (Stephenson) is because of all the made up words, etc. that he uses - heard mixed reviews.

TJCams
06-30-2014, 12:33 PM
So.... my street (block) had a block sale. My neighbour had books ( uh oh....), that if they didn't sell were to be donated to a local charity re-sale store (Goodwill). I said I'd gladly take them, as we were taking a bunch of stuff down to the same place. How can I donate a batch without making sure there wasn't something I was interested in first...... ;)

So...ended up with:

I'd be curious if it would add value to it.

slayn666
02-19-2015, 01:32 AM
I can't see how it would. As far as I know, the only time a physical flaw does anything except detract from the value of a book is when it was present in ALL copies of a given edition, and only that edition, as it becomes a method of identification.

Beyond that, it's a second printing and, unless you're dealing with The Gunslinger, it's 1st/1st or bust with King =/
