There's a lot more forthcoming, it's just a matter of finding the time to catalog and take pictures of what I have coming in. I sell used books part time and usually only have time to work on cataloging and inventory on the weekends.

I guess I should introduce myself since I haven't said much up until now. I've been a horror fan since I was about 13 (41 now) I was never into collecting much until about 4 months ago. The company I help run is, among other things, in the liquidation business. Mainly we focus on furniture but a few months ago, I had the opportunity to liquidate thousands of books, which I did and opened a book corner in our retail store. There was something about being around so many books that triggered the collector bug in me. When I was you, anger I always wanted to collect, but could never afford it, and now that I can, I've gone a bit crazy the last few months. The books I collect are all over the map. I'm a big Stephen King fan, but collecting King is a tough nut to crack, so along with King, I've focused on Joe Hill, Joe R. Lansdale, David J. Schow, Robert Block and F. Paul Wilson, to name a few. I'm also really big on anthologies, primarily from the 50's on, I've got some signed/limiteds, as well as a lot that aren't all that valuable. Since I work full time during the week, most of my weekend days are spent cataloging my personal collection and inventorying all the books I'm selling in my store, and my hopes are eventually to make enough money selling books in my store to support my habit. I'm not quite there yet though.

I haven't read that one, but I loved The Haunting of Hill House and I remember liking The Lottery when I read it in high school.

Not part of my personal collection per se, these are the two King shelves in my store. I'm not into shameless plugs or anything, just thought I'd post these for fun. My picture taking abilities aren't that great and all I know how to do in Photoshop is the auto fixes. Not surprisingly, King is one of my biggest sellers.

Bango, can you tell me the table of contents for "11 Great Horror Stories" (post # 26)?? I think I borrowed that book from my cousin 35 years ago, and it was my introduction to Lovecraft. But there was another story in the book that I still remember, but have no idea of the title or author. It was about a guy who murdered and ate his wife. The detective caught him because he bought a lot of mustard, or something like that.

I love a lot of those other books too. I used to check a lot of the Hitchcock anthologies out of the library. Come to think of it that story sounds like one that would be in one of the Hitchcock books. But I'm pretty sure it was in something I borrowed from Henry.

Finally, is that a complete set of the Green Mile serials? Mine disappeared years ago.

It might take me a couple days, but I'll check 11 Great Horror Stories when I get a chance and put up a scan of the TOC. I believe I have at least one full set of the Green Mile Serials, but I can't recall offhand what kind of shape they're in. I'll see what I have and let you know.
