Since I'm home from China for awhile, I decided to take some pictures of my collection. This is only a small part of what I have, but I thought I'd put up some of the highlights.

I only have a couple of shelves to use, so here's a quick look at those. Detailed shots of some of the books to follow.

I randomly found out about the novelization of Phantasm several years ago and went online to order these from the publisher. I got lucky because I got copies 499 and 500/500. And Don Coscarelli drew a picture of "the ball" in #500. It's also signed by Reggie Bannister. The whole Phantasm cast is going to be in Chicago next month, and I might have a friend got and get it signed by the rest of the cast. I've never seen one of these for sale, except on Amazon marketplace, where it was $500. I paid $15 apiece.

Hellbound Heart lettered edition from Earthling. A really beautiful book (but crappy pics of it). One of my favorites, especially after I saw that Camelot is selling a copy for $5000. There's an original drawing by Barker laid into the traycase. They're doing the same thing for the lettered First Tales, which I hope gets published soon. I also have a PC of the limited edition that I still need to dig out.

Clive Barker Imaginer art book. This one is amazing. Already ordered volume 2 when the kickstarter campaign was up. The only problem with this is that I'm pretty sure there are going to be 8 volumes and I have no clue where I'll put them.

Lettered Stealth Press Books of Blood. Camelot advertised this copy as "dinged" but it barely has a mark. Have to say that for a lettered book the quality isn't too impressive. I also got the limited sub press edition of this one

One I've been trying to find for years--lettered Thief of Always. Identical to the numbered edition in every way. For the most part, the big publishers have done a very mediocre job with limited Barkers.

Got a copy of the signed Knowing Darkness at an amazing price on eBay. I know everybody has seen this but I can't believe how massive it is. I've never seen anything like it. I thought the slip cased edition was huge so I had to take some side by side pics to compare.

Thinking of my tiny 4' 11" mother trying to get this up a flight of stairs has provided much amusement.

I've seen a few with good prices on ebay but due to the size of the book and the Canadian dollar not doing so good shipping it is a hefty amount. Hopefully in the future I can grab a copy at a decent price.

I just posted my copy of the "gift edition" earlier today. By far the biggest book in my collection, and that one makes it look small! Very nice addition. Congrats on the EP copy of American Psycho too!

Kafka did give me some sticker shock, but I love the book (I actually teach it), and it’s nice to have something that is a bit more traditionally “literary” in my collection. The shameful part of me that lives in an ivory tower convinced me that it was worth any price.
