Part three:

Let's not for get about these:
131

I found Lisey's Story in a used book store in KCMO. It was still shrink wrapped. The cover is like those econ-clad books in my high school's library. The wrap around on the Slipcase is a heavy posterboard. It was published by Scribner's.

part four:

I have so many leather-bound Easton Press books that I could overload the system just with images. I have the 17-volume Thousand and One Nights; 20-vol complete Ernest Hemingway; 39-vol works of Shakespeare; 30+ volumes of The 100 Greatest Books Ever Written set; 6-vol William Faulkner set; 7-vol F.Scott Fitzgerald set; translations of The Kama Sutra/The Perfumed Garden/The Ananga-Ranga; illustrated 2-vol Gone with the Wind; 3-vol The Faeirie Queen; illustrated 4-vol Le Morte D'Arthur; Illustrated Fagles translations of The Illiad and The Odyssey; The Lottery; Norman Rockwell ilustrated Tom Sawyer; The Wind in the Willows; Planet of the Apes. I'm looking to start Masterpieces of Science Ficiton and Patrick O'Brian's Master and Commander set.

But of interest might be these, my signed editions:

135

Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury; The Andromeda Strain by Michael Crichton; Wicked by Gregory Maguire; The Enchantress of Florence by Salman Rushdie; The Sword of Shannara by Terry Brooks; and The Red Badge of Courage, illustrated and signed by Mort Kuntsler.

Wish I had an impressive collection like that to share. Alas, many of my books have come from backstreet bookstores and the like. I know some of them are old, as they were difficult to find, but I doubt they are worth anything. Very nice collection though.

srboone
06-09-2011, 02:55 PM
Thank-ee kindly, sai Ozmo! My collection started with used Michael Moorcock pbs from back alley bookstores and garage sales, so don't give up!

But I don't consider myself a collector by means--a pack rat maybe. If I were a collector, I wouldn't hold a poorly constructed slipcase against Subterranean Press (especially since they have many titles I'd love to have; ex. Embassytown by China Meiville--the next great SF novel!). If I were a collector, I'd buy traycased and boxed editions of works. (They look beautiful, but they clash with what I want my library to look like.)

Anyway, after visiting your website, you have some talents I wouldn't mind having (artistic, etc.) Keep up the great work!

ozmosis7
06-09-2011, 03:00 PM
Thanks, I appreciate the website visit. I am trying out the whole online serial novel thing as well, with a Zombie theme--in some ways.

I have recently been offered a 2nd edition limited print signed copy of Joe Hill's Heart-Shaped Box (my current favorite book) for $80. That would certainly spruce up my collection. But alas the couch, fridge, and MB shower are on the way out, so as tempting as it is, I have to pass. Perhaps if I sold a kidney or something eh? :P

If you'll indulge me one last time, I forgot about the big boy (it was still in the basement from when i had to go flying down there last week). This monster is the ceterpiece of my library. It mesures 13 1/2 by 17 1/2 inches and had a shipping weight of 24 lbs. Part of that was the clamshell case it came in.

The Works of Geoffery Chaucer was printed in 1896 by The Kelmscott Press and is considered to be one of the most beautiful books ever printed. It's roughly around 600 pages and an original single page runs between $3,000-$5,000. Only 425 copies were printed and I think only 13 complete editions are in existence today, tho many partial copies exist. This is of course a facsimile copy published by Easton Press. (run of 425).

I can't remember where i got the afghan it is resting on here, but after reading Lisey's Story, it is now called an african:

Stayed up most of the night reading I am Legend--25 to 30 pages an hour is about average for me--had to read around the baseball games as well.:p

Dry in a lot of places, but I love intellectual pursuit books, so Legend gets an approval nod from me. Halfway through, I realized that there's also 10 of Matheson's shorter works in the volume. :)

I love happy surprises.

Centipede Press' The Ninth Configuration:

Bookseller stickers.... don't get me started on that one. Lets just say I don't like them, not one bit. But, compared to what my bookstore does to books, stickers aren't so bad. They put those plastic things on the inside of the back cover:

http://img.tootoo.com/mytootoo/upload/54/541081/product/541081_83923f50377fee6e3656682adcde8fef.jpg

The glue is so strong, it makes them almost impossible to take off without damaging the book!

You need to find another bookstore!:mad:

peteOcha
07-19-2011, 12:05 PM
I wish it was just that easy. It has the best selection of books in the area. Other stores with books in English maybe have a shelf or two at the most and most of the time they have nothing new that I don't already have. Although I heard about some other bookstore in the area that supposedly has a good selection, just need to find it.

Why anyone would do that to books is beyond me. Would it be possible to talk to them and have things set aside for you without those tags being attached? Obviously you'd have to know what you'd want to get ahead of time though. Might not be possible, but wouldn't hurt to ask I suppose.

srboone
07-19-2011, 06:09 PM
And here I am bitching about having to use Goo Gone and leather wipes to clean residue of a cover. I've never encounter a sticker on a paper cover (like SUbterranean Press uses), tho; I'd probably just pass the book up. I was able to get a good copy of King's The Dead Zone cheaply because of 4 stickers placed on it (one a child's unicorn sticker)-took me all day, but i fixed it.

I'll try that, maybe I can work something out with them. Have them set aside the books for me when a shipment comes in or something like that. Or convince them to get rid of those damn tags.

I noticed Waldenbooks near me was putting the sensor tags on for a while. Except they didn't put it on near the back, it was randomly inserted in the middle area of the book. I had a stack of manga books I wanted and just noticed one felt different. I got and haven't been back since.

TQ&IT has been the only game I've liked in the last few years. I started playing it on a computer that only had 512 RAM and it was so slow. Now that I've upgraded to a higher RAM, it plays like a dream. I love it! It's a long game tho...

The forums for TQ are still going strong. Titanquest.net is the one I belong to; Iron Lore is out of business, but the fan community has created a patch that makes the game so much better--and there's hundreds of mod for it.

DVD copies of my favorite TV series: Quantum Leap (1989-1993)

Doctor Sam Beckett led a group of top scientists into the desert to research his theory that a man could time travel within his own lifetime. Unfortunately, in order to save his funding, he was forced to enter the accelerator prematurely and vanished. He then found himself in someone else's body with partial amnesia. His only contact from home is Al, a holographic image only he can see and hear. Setting right things which once went wrong, Sam leaps from life to life, hoping each time that his next leap will be the leap home.

QL is a family show, something you can let the kids watch. Each episode is self-contained and can be watched out of order. It also had the only series finale that I wasn't disappointed in. The Sci-fi Channel (Syfy--what the hell is that????) sometimes runs the entire series.

Of special note would be Season 3, Episode 5: "The Boogieman (October 31,1964)". The infamous Stephen King episode. Find a site that streams it and watch it. You won't regret it.

NOTE: I love the X-files. Definitely my second-favorite. But it did go on too long. Should have ended when Duchovny left the series.

One of the many joys of the original work is that the wood Pinocchio was carved from was given to Geppetto by a rival carpenter as a joke, who knew that the wood was alive and wanted to vex G. The illustration is of the converstion G has with the piece of wood.

Finally, a first edition, 1927, of the very first Hardy Boys book, The Tower Treasure.

13701371

The text has changed over the years, mostly to reflect the changing technology and mores of society; also, the police force of Bayport was the equivalent of theKeystone Kops--that was also cut. The orignal stroies were 24 chapters long. Today, the books are only 20 chapters. Here is my favorite example of what was cut out.

1372

Slim Robinson is the Negro-Italian son of the caretaker of the Applegate Estate who is suspected of stealing the treasure.

While I'd never gone out of my way for an S/L or flat-signed book until recently, I started scouring back-alley book shops in Topeka and Kansas City in the mid-80's for old Michael Moorcock paperbacks. This is what my meager collection started out as:

The bottom row of pic #4 is still on my TBR list. A number of the books in pic #3 were purchased in Australia. I've collected as many Moorcock books in HC as I could since 1995. Mohter London in pic #4 currently sits at #3 on my all-time favorite list.

Meager in comparison to you and Mr. Woot! ;)

Moorcock is one of the most eloquent authors I've ever read. He writes dark fantasy mostly. If anybody is looking to read something by him, I would recommend The Warhound and the World's Pain. I think Mother London is his best work, but it's about three survivors of the V-2 rocket bombings of WWII who encounter each other in a mental institution--not the dark fantasy he's really known for.

peteOcha
11-06-2011, 07:27 AM
Great stuff Squire! Not meager at all! If I ever have the chance to pick up something of his I'll be sure not to pass it by. I remember you saying that he had something that could be compared to The Dark Tower series...?

srboone
11-06-2011, 07:46 AM
Well, as far as The Eternal Champion series encompassing 95% of what he's written. Since he writes in trilogies, you have to be careful of what you pick up first. Moorcock also ocassionally places himself in his own novels, though he is never a motivating factor in them; he usually just appears as a traveller in the megaflow of time.

I was always curious as to why Grant published Moorcock's The Vanishing Tower--#4 in the original 6-book Elric saga--and none of the other 5.

Of couse there's now 12 books in the Elric saga, plus a plethora of short stories by a whole sh'bang of authors.

Pictured is maybe 20% of what he's written...

Most of Moorcock's books are 180-220 pages in length (day to day-n-a-half reads). If you read enough of Moorcock and his crazy time-flow theories, you realize that all of his eternal champion series books happen simultaneously, so any one should be able to be picked up to read, but this is the one that cemented by love for Moorcock:

His latest historical conspiracy put-on. This one apparently has a character so odius, vile and hated that the author has been accused of anti-Semitism. I don't know about that; I just think that his books are highly ironic in nature and simply not for the philosopically gullible. He might be an intellectual snob, but his novels are experiences that are not soon forgotten. He is a professor of semiotics (the study of signs, omens and portents in language---I had to look that one up) at the University of Bologna.

No special art for this volume, simply the Trade HC in a letherbound edition. I must comment on the extraordinary difference between this book and the musical based on it: 180 deg opposite of each other. Where the musical is very family-friendly tho quite scary in places, the book is a very pessimistic discussion of the place of religion in society. Elphaba (the wicked witch) is actually a child of the three religions of the land: the dogmatic, the mystical and the scientific. This isn't the palce for a discussion of the book, but the set of the musical I saw was outlined with the Dragon Clock-- representative of the scientific religion. I wouldn't have known what it was without reading the book.

Well, I'm back and I must say I really enjoyed "A Conversation with Stephen King." But it started out being advertised as a reading followed by the sit down conversation. The reading was part of the pre-game slideshow which included things people had written in the memories book at the Sixth Floor Museum. King reading snipets from his book were interspersed through out. He couldn't have read more than 10 seconds at a time and since the loop was about 6 minutes long, there weren't that many. Oh well.

When he wasn't waxing political, King had something interesting to say. He's witty, sly and I really think that he still can't believe he's been able to write full-time for 30+ years. Very enjoyable evening.

It all ended with a big fustercluck when the organizers realized that there would be a stampede for books at the end. They had to hold half of us back for about 45 minutes, but it all worked out in the end. We passed the time talking about first Kings read, favorites and least favorites. I was greeted with a chorus of "no way"s when I said The Complete and Uncut Version of The Stand was my least favorite King. Ce la vie...

More happy surprises today: 2 remarques by Ronald Kelly (more on them later); he was kind enough to include one of Deena Warner Halloween cards featuring his story "The Halloween Train." I had also ordered one from Deena Warner's website, and also in the mail today was a letter containing a second copy of the Halloween card! So I have two of them them!:)

Is this Halloween Train part of a longer tale? I love it.

No. Deena Warner sends out illustrated cards every Halloween; the cards feature a short short by a different author each year. This is 2011's card and it featured a short by Ronald Kelly. One of the aspects of Kelly's works I love is his child characters.

Here's the website:

I don't know if she sends cards oversees or not. You can always ask.

Those RK remarques are excellent Young Squire - Limited Editions signed by the author, then double signed and remarqued, to you personally, are freaking fantastic !!!!!! :cool::cool::cool:

Thanks, Patrick! And you're welcome! That was my first SK event, don't know if I'll get to any others. It was a lot of fun (navigating Dallas at night wasn't, but that was all my fault...)

Well, I'm one of the infidels who has a 1st/1st trade US HC of The Satanic Verses. Rushdie is difficult to read, but always worth the effort.

Interesting, Squire!
When I attended the NYC Harry, Carrie and Garp event a couple of years ago, selected audience members were allowed to ask SK a question. One of these was a young boy (or did he ask J.K. Rowling?? I forgot..), together with his dad...Salman Rushdie.

It's called XXXX cos, apparently, some Aussies can't spell beer - no problem drinking it though, nope, no issue there :p

TerryE
11-18-2011, 02:10 PM
Or is it just because it's twice as strong as Mexican beer? And you know they say that compared to Australian beer, American beer is like making love in a canoe.

11-18-2011, 03:11 PM
XXXX-Australian for beer! As long as the X's don't stand for poison! It says "Bitter" on it, so that's a plus!

Grant Wootton
11-18-2011, 06:08 PM
Well, XXXX is really Queensland's beer, we here in New South Wales primarily go for VB (Victoria Bitter - which is, as the name implies, a Victorian beer - why ??? 'cos largely, NSW beers are crap :p)

1925

Part of the promo jingle's lyrics include such gems as :

You can get it jumpin'
You can get it pumpin'
You can get it pressin' a suit
A hard earned thirst needs a big cold beer
And the best cold beer's VIC
A LONG COLD VIC
You can get it liftin'
You can get it shiftin'
You can get it any old how
Matter o' fact, I got it now

Jeez, no wonder I stick with freaking bourbon !!!!!!

Very nice pictures.Love the red badge of courage.Those last few photos gave me an idea.I think I'll open up a B&B.Books and Beer place.Great limited books
and great limited beers.could be a money maker.
On a side note Gregory Mcguire is from this area and he seems like a nice guy. I read Wicked along time ago and enjoyed it.Have not read the others yet either.
