I have way too many books, but I do take good care of them, I keep them in a dark, cool environment, with Mylar on all the dust jackets and never read the limited/signed editions I have but rather borrow or buy cheap PB's of those Limiteds, I've been collecting since I was ten or eleven when I noticed all these strange, kinda creepy covers on my older sister's shelf by a man named Stephen King, it was not until Full Dark, No Stars and Cemetery Dance's Limited Edition of it that I realized that such collectibles are out there, now I am obsessed and have been collecting signed trade and signed/limiteds since, Thanks CD for kicking my mania into high gear! :)

My picture taking is not the best but I will try to add better shots of the rarer items later on but for now...

It is definitely a labor of love with me, I shudder to think what life would have been like without books, I'm so grateful I was born after the printing press

you are in for quite a shock, proceed with caution, I've read Header, The Pig and the House, The Bighead, A Portrait of the Pyschopath as a Young Woman, The Minotauress, The Tertaologist (with Wrath James White), Mangled Meat, Brain Cheese Buffet, You are My Everything and some other short stories and he is one sick puppy! he balances the extremes of his material with a great, twisted sense of humor

American Psycho, a very nicely produced book but for the price, it really needed to come with a slipcase, still proud to own one.

This cemetery dance slipcase fits AP great. I'm not sure if they have any left as they aren't on the site anymore but maybe Dan could look.

That one is another Necro release and I've actually only read the Ed Lee story from it because it was included in another anthology, I learn from Dave at Necro Publishing that there is not a PB version planned because so many of the stories have been included in other anthologies so that is the only edition, the pics I took don't do the DJ justice, they also did a deluxe limited edition that came inside a little cage making the whole thing look like the gates of hell,

Cemetery Dance is of course my favorite small press but certainly another favorite is Necro, love the subject material and the quality of the products they put out and Dave is a really nice guy, can't say enough good things about them, I scour Bad Moon Books' website quite often as well, So many books...

Thank you! The lip stamps were for Tell-All book tour, I may be wrong but from what I've read, starting with Diary each book tour has had it's own particular stamps, in some cases like Snuff, Rant and Haunted there are two different stamps, I've never seen the stamps for Diary, they are getting up there in price
I wish Ellis would write more books and leave Hollywood alone for a while, he's still one of my favorites though
Thanks for looking more to come, my camera died on me before I got to more

I think your right about the stamps. I have an ARC of Diary signed with the stamps. Off the top of my head i think they say "property of waytansea library, not for sale" but I'll check tomorrow.

haha, I used to avoid swimming pools because of the chlorine but that wonderful story gave me a whole new reason, it might just be my favorite horror short story ever simply for the response it elicits from readers upon their first reading, very potent indeed :eek:

You won't be disappointed, I felt the whole thing would have benefited greatly from editing out some of the weaker stories but the ones that do work are ones you'll never forget, it is being made into a film and I am VERY interested to see how some of those stories are handled

The part that is really creepy, the part that keeps me up at night is trying to figure out exactly what caused such a diehard Duran Duran Devotee to cast aside his/hers/its obviously-loved and well-maintained fanbook, I mean what was it that pushed this person over the edge and caused them to say "To hell with Duran Duran" and then fling their prized possession to the four winds, or was it unintentional? was there a struggle? is there an overly-hairsprayed Duran Duran fan with a duct-taped mouth being menaced in Rural South Carolina somewhere? Dear God, the horror, the horror!

I still have not introduced myself to the world of Lee yet either, but Bighead was one I want to grab, and well, now I have a few others too to look out for. :)

How does he compared to Wrath James White?

Tommy
03-29-2013, 04:52 AM
How does he compared to Wrath James White?

I've read a fair amount of Ed Lee but only one full length novel by White solo and The Teratologist written by both and from what I see, Lee is a satirist and even, dare I say, a moralist who is poking fun of societal habits and attitudes by way of extreme body horror and most of the time with a kinky, twisted sense of humor (I still sometimes think to myself "Shake-a-Puddin'" and start to laugh (From The House)). White seems to go for the jugular with no apologies, there's more sadness in his words then Lee's but a sadness with real power. Oddly enough, with The Teratologist, I felt more White in the writing than Lee. Both writers definitely have a taste for warped sexual themes but I really should read more White before I analyze him. I'm currently working on his short story collection The Book of a Thousand Sins

The Resurrectionist is the only taste of WJW I have experienced. I am curious to make a comparison.

Thanks, I got more coming tomorrow, I am still recovering from the MMP, I also got two autographs from Bruce Campbell and it was a near three hour wait in line for his signatures! but he is worth it, love The Evil Dead movies and I can't wait for the new one! Also got Jason's autograph (Kane Hodder) and four different Leatherfaces including the original Gunnar Hanssen, also the two leads from Human Centipede 2, Danny Glover and the Man who played Godzilla in 12 of the original Japanese films, Haruo Nakajima

The jacket was part of Cemetery Dance's Unique Collector's Extravaganza 2013 and I don't think it was referred to as "prototype" but I couldn't think of a better word for it, this is the first time I ordered one of these and was very pleased with what I received, now that I have this one King plate, I want more :rolleyes:

Very nice. I really want to get Wool (the omnibus version). They had it on Amazon about a year ago, with the different version yellow cover. I put it off, put it off, then it was gone. I think this was when the author signed the mass publishing deal. So, I missed out on it. I am in no hurry, but should it pop up for a good deal, I hope to grab it one day. Although I would settle for the current mass produced cover I suppose.

Very cool. A lot of people here have picked up Wool. I haven't even heard of Hugh Howey.

Hugh is a great guy who spends a lot of time with his fans listening to their ideas and signing books for them etc. Not too mention that I really do love WOOL, havent read The Shift or Dust yet but I certainly will eventually, 20 Century Fox have the film rights and Ridley Scott is eyeing the project but who knows when he will get to it, he has like a billion other projects in the works now

Especially your Kings, I have a few questions; I was wondering what the first Doctor Sleep one you have there is, Is that the signed UK edition, or the limited UK facsimile sig. version? Also what's the massive book next to Stephen King: The Non-Fiction? Then on the last row there is 3 books without titles on the spine, and one I can't make out. The first I imagine is Knowing Darknes, but what are the three books between The Secretary of Dreams and the Big Book of Necon?

It is the Doctor Sleep UK facsimile edition of 700, The book besides SK the Nonfiction is actually a slipcase made for comic books but I use them for different things, that one has my signed copy of Cycle of the Werewolf trade paperback, my copy of the Whispers issue with Before the Play and a few other king items, the first book after SOD v2 is the deluxe edition of Ghost Brothers of Darkland County, beside that is A book of Horrors limited edition with an add-on slipcase, beside that is the signed limited of the big book of necon with all the sigs except for King's
