Well, I went to the Days of the Dead convention and got schooled in con life. I didn't realize signatures were so expensive. And I didn't realize that once there I wouldn't care that signatures were so expensive. I spent $175 to get signatures from three Cenobites (everyone but Doug Bradley) and Ashley Laurence for my edition of Hellbound Heart. It was worth every penny. I met and talked with the Cenobites (Nicholas Vince, Simon Bamford, and Barbie Wilde) and loved every minute of it. I'll have to hunt down Bradley to make my edition complete, but I'm thrilled.

The Cenobites!

Careful, the con life is addicting. I spent 6 hours in line to get Robert Englund's autograph just to have it announced he was leaving for the day. 6 hours in a hotel's maintenance hallway. UGH Someone ahead of us brought 25 things for him to sign. He charges $80 for an autograph. SO, had to go back the next and final day and still waited another hour. It was worth it though. I also waited in line for nearly four hours for Bruce Campbell's autograph. Hulk Hogan was at one convention I went to (this was before the sex tape and racism scandal) and he charged $100 per autograph. Insane! Years and years ago most celebs would do it for free, then it became 10 or 20 per autograph. Now, all bets are off.

I met and got Doug Bradley's autograph on 2 books. A lovely man to chat with and he only charged $20 per autograph.

Every one of the actors playing the cenobites was charming and friendly. I talked nearly 15 minutes with Nicholas Vince (he played the Chatterer) and it was like being with an insanely interesting old friend.

I expected to pay $10-$20. But the cheapest was $30. Ashley Laurence charged $50 and when I went to also get a pic with her, her bodyguard almost told me to pay more, but Ashley waved him away. By comparison Clive Barker was charging $60.

I paid for two photo ops, one with with him and one with him and the cenobites. Those were pricey. That one day at DOTD cost me $440 (attendance, signatures, photo ops, and lunch--there was this HELLRAISER burger I just had to have!)

It's funny but they use to put the prices up of what each celeb was charging for an autograph but some of the guests balked at that because they were charging less than others and yadda yadda yadda so they don't do that any more.

Blame assholes that would bring stacks of headshots for people to sign (for free) then turn around and flip them for massive profits. I honestly can't hold it against the actors.

I understand why celebrities (and sports stars) charge for things because so many people turn around and sell the items on the secondary market, so coming across those who don't charge is highly refreshing.

David Petersen (Mouse Guard - I know, I know, but I have to use his name in at least 50% of my posts or the checks stop coming) will sign everything - but I've spent so much money on his things the last few years I feel like I've earned. Same with Terry Moore - he didn't charge - but I've bought practically everything he's produced (his wife even said she's happy that I have the books even if I didn't buy them from him because it means someone did.)

Chris Claremont was charging for autographs, and while I tried to get one, people in front of me had literal boxes/cases of issues to get signed, and after waiting almost an hour and never moving, I gave up.


Oh - I'm curious about this Hellraiser burger . . .

As far as sport stuff - I've gotten all my Sounders stuff signed at games so I never had to pay.

My wife was an original Turner Classic Movie employee getting into high management level. Whenever an actor/actress came in for an interview the staff would get 8x10 autograph head shots. Ended up with a few including Charlton Heston, James Garner, Patricia Neal and a few others. Not at home right now so I cannot recall the others.

Yeah, I totally understand why they charge money. And it's cool. My edition of HELLBOUND HEART is worth a lot more than the $375 I've spent acquiring it and getting it signed.

As for the Hellraiser burger, it was a cool idea and a wonderful presentation, but it tasted like garbage. The drink I had with it (named Dead by Dawn!) was so much tastier.

The chains were some jelly-like substance that had the consistency of snot. I plucked that crap off immediately. My brother in law ate his chains and declared his burger just fine. I probably would have enjoyed the burger more had I eaten the painted toothpicks.

That reminds me, I "promised" to make a thread of my own . . .

So here are some recent acquisitions instead.

First up - my second CD lettered edition - and one - if I'm totally honest - I wasn't expecting to acquire. You see, I throw up random bids on eBay sometimes because every now and then you can score a pretty good deal on something. This is the first of two "oh what the hell" items I won:

CD Lettered Smoke & Mirrors:
21135 21136

It's a beautiful book - and one I'm tempted to not keep because screenplays don't do anything for me - BUT look at those contributors! Damn!


My second WTH bid on eBay scored me this really nice original Mouse Guard drawing/sketch (per David Petersen on Twitter, he says this definitely looks like something he did):
21137

I paid $18.50 for that so I feel I came out ahead.

And not as exciting as the above, but here are two books that will actually get read that arrived today - the new Powers collection from Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming, and the new short story collection from N.K. Jemisin:
21138

Let me just say that I'll never get tired of opening a box from Camelot and seeing the wrapping paper around my books - it always feels like a present doing that one little thing.

This arrived Wednesday, but I wasn't able to pick it up until today:

21146

Two books - first the new Cosmic Interruptions from Joe Lansdale:
21147 21148
(I either forgot or had no idea, but it was a nice surprise to see that the two artists also signed the limitation page.)

The second book from Camelot is Sea of Rust (by C Robert Cargill) from SubPress. It sounds interesting, so I ordered it from Camelot only because they don't charge until they actually ship. I have a reading copy around here somewhere so hopefully day I'll actually read this. :)
21149

Lastly, these arrived last week or so - purchased before my employment issues - but I got these for almost half off cover price - revisting some of my loves from my younger days, so I couldn't pass up this giant collection of Todd McFarlane's Amazing Spider-Man run:
21150

And then I've been re-familiarizing myself with the classic Batman: The Animated Series, so I picked up the deluxe edition of Paul Dini's and Bruce Timm's Mad Love:
21151

(If you're curious about this re-familiarizing, I've also picked up the new Complete B:TAS Blu-ray, a paperback copy of Paul Dini's and Chip Kidd's Batman Animated book (I really want a hardcover!) along with all of the Animated Batman Funko Pops. I'm kicking myself for not grabbing Mondo's amazing action figure they announced awhile ago, but that was a tad pricey (just like their damn prints!) Trying to not buy everything related but there are some fun stuff out there related to this series.

Cool stuff, TD...I hope I don't end up regretting not going for the ST Lansdale four-volume set. I have all of Lansdale's collections, so knew these would be largely (completely?) a set of reprints of stories I already have in one collection or another, but still....ST does a fantastic job, and I've seen pictures of the first volume, and it's far more illustrated than I'd thought, and looks just incredible. I still may break down, but so far I'm trying to exert will power to resist.

SEA OF RUST has tempted me more than once...several times when the trade ed. came out, and again when your S/L ed. from Sub Press was annouced. It's another book I passed on, but if I ever see a sweet deal on the S/L I'll probably jump on it.

Odds are you'll probably find a sweet deal on Sea of Rust a little bit down the road - an author with limited or no name recognition (at least for me) and a very basic by the numbers edition - it should pop up on eBay or at least be available when SubPress has their next 50% off sale.

Picked up a neat little toy yesterday:

It was time for a new one anyway, plus with my upcoming move, I needed something a little more appropriate for snow. Which by the looks of our current forecast, I’ll get lots of practice!

It is nice that mother nature is getting you ready for your move.

Last 24 hours have been slightly expensive for book buying:

CD 50% Off Sale:
Muse
The Girl on the Porch
Knight of the Word

Dark Regions:
Rosemary’s Baby Artist Edition (Suntup)
—Took advantage of the Gold Coin promotion to get a 50% Off coupon and gift card.

Subterranean (through Camelot)
The Chalk Man (everyone’s praise on the forum for Tudor pushed me over the edge)
In the Shadow of Spindrift House

Now I’m very seriously considering the following:
Upgrading to the limited of Rosemary’s Baby
Or picking up the Artist Editions of Misery and Horns
Anybody want to push me in one direction or the other? Are Subtup’s Artist Editions that nice to quench the thirst? The limited editions SO much better that I’ll never look back?

Scored some great bargains there, Keith!

I'd say you need all of them as far as Suntup goes. I have the AGE of Misery and it's a very nice, big book. I have both editions of Horns and Rosemary's Baby ordered so we'll have to see once they start rolling in. I was very impressed with the limited of The Haunting of Hill House.

I so have this feeling that Tudor is going to become very popular although I can't tell you why. I have yet to read (listen) to any of her stuff. Yet, I have the Sub Press edition ordered as well and the UK edition of her latest book ordered.

The Folio Society edition of Something Wicked This Way Comes arrived yesterday. A few comments. I wish the overall color was more Pumpkiny, if that makes sense. The yellow is almost acid. I know we’ve had a discussion about the value of introductions in the past, but I’ve come to enjoy and appreciate a good introduction, I think it can add some perspective to the book. Now I’m not familiar with comic stylings of Mr. Frank Skinner. I’m sure he’s very good or dating somebody’s wife on the editorial staff, no, I kid, I kid, but his intro missed the mark for me. Which is sad because I think a book of this stature deserves a bang up intro. Finally, why does Mr. Dark look like the GD Joker?? I don’t get it. Now it may sound like I don’t like this book, but I do, just not all of it lol! I think it was a good buy and a nice addition to my collection, it’s just not my favorite edition.

All good points.

(Edited to remove the rest of my earlier post...upon reflection, I feel like I was a bit too critical of the design features of the book and like I was dumping on someone else’s nice acquisition, even if I was just agreeing and expanding upon the points, which wasn’t my intent at all.)

Overlook Connection has never done a signed/limited Stephen King book, nor have they recently announced one...not sure who you’re confusing them with. They have offered trade editions with alternative dustjackets by Glenn Chadbourne, but that’s it. No idea how those were received by the King collecting community and if they’re still doing it.

Yes, The Overlook Connection did two different S/L editions of McCammon paperbacks. The first was a slipcased set of his first four novels (the Pocket Books versions, not PBOs) and the second was a slipcased edition of The Wolf's Hour (PBO). All of the books have a rather cheaply made tip-in sheet that is signed and numbered. The slipcases are fairly nice though.

The Overlook Connection’s edition of The Girl Next Door, in addition to being signed by King, was also signed by Jack Ketchum, Christopher Golden, Lucy Taylor, Edward Lee, Phil Nutman, Stanley Wiater & Neal McPheeters. This was the trade edition of which 500 were published and were slipcase. The original cost was $75. The lettered edition was $300. It was published in 1996.

You bet -- that Ketchum HC reprint is a handsome edition with a great intro by Stephen King...I have a copy of it in my own collection. My only point was that Overlook Connection has never done a Stephen King novel (or collection)...to my knowledge, the only work specific to King they've done is throwing on variant dustjackets by Chadbourne on trade HC editions.

Cap, if you've never read Ellison, please don't start off with Doomsman. Ellison hated it so much that he would buy back copies from fans :)

You can read about one fan's experience in this link: https://www.philgiunta.com/harlan-ellison-has-left-us/

I actually have a copy of it too, but it's been at least 30 years since I read it.

I would recommend Deathbird Stories or I have no mouth and I must scream as two good Ellison books to start off with. I'm a big fan of his non-fiction, especially books like The Glass Teat, The Other Glass Teat, Harlan Ellison's Watching, etc.

Got these yesterday, along with a few others that I'll post later. I know some Centipede items can be a bit pricey, I've passed on a few myself, but these two are examples of their high quality affordable books. I love Weird Fiction Review, I look forward to it every year and their Library Of Weird Fiction line is top notch. Can't wait to pitch into the Robert Aickman!

I wish these were available digitally.....The print price always make me pass, no matter how tempted I may be. I would love to be able to read the whole series on my tablet, though.....hint hint!

Today Circus Boy Annual showed up. The TV show Circus Boy ran for two seasons, 1956-1958. It starred Micky Braddock, actually Micky Dolenz, as the title character and the series spawned comic books and (My favorite) four big hardcovers with stories based on the TV show. I have two of the big Circus Boy hardcovers to read. I'm itching to start one and just get lost in it.

Howard and I go way back to the Lancer editions with the Frazetta covers. But I really didn't begin to appreciate him until the Zebra Paperback editions came out in the mid 70s. The Jeff Jones Covers were fantastic. Pigeons From Hell was the first one I bought, introducing me to Howard's Horror work. That Zebra series was amazing, Sowers of Thunder, The Book of Robert E. Howard Vols 1&2. There are more expensive editions but none that mean so much to me on a personal level. The University of Nebraska put out a short series, that Featured a great Collection called, The Black Stranger And Other American Tales, if you ever come upon it, pick it up. The Hardback edition is kind of pricey, but there is a paperback edition. I know Howard is some what under a cloud because his material represent the racist attitudes of his time and place, Texas in the 20-30s, but his writing is so good, some genres, so much fun.

Honestly compared to his contemporaries, Lovecraft, or even Burroughs, Howard isn't that racist. I feel like some of his characters and stories may even be a bit progressive, considering the time and place that he lived. Nonetheless that doesn't make him exempt, his ideas on race are definitely outdated.

For several years I participated in Nielson radio ratings. Every few months they would send me a survey and when I returned it they sent me an uncirculated dollar bill. I always found it funny that they paid a dollar for each survey completed. I would use the crisp new dollar as a book mark. Periodically I find a new uncirculated dollar bill in a book. I am also pretty sure I have traded a few books in at Powell's that had uncirculated bills in them.

OK guys, I’m going to start posting some of the catalogs. The collection represents four decades of catalogs and ephemera, starting with Fall/Winter 1963 all from the F and S.J. Book Company of Staten Island NY, interestingly some of the catalogs don’t have zip codes. The second catalog is from summer 1964, next Fall 1964, Summer 1965 and finally Winter 1965/66. I can just imagine somebody sitting down to draw the covers, after spending hours at the typewriter. WOW!

The Forgotten Squadron: The 449th Fighter Squadron in World War II by Daniel Jackson. This World War II military history book is trippy. The features: Nice marbled endpapers, high resolution photos printed directly onto the inside sides (left front and right back) of the book plus the dustjacket's description of the book with the photos. In the middle of the book I found a huge bookmark from Schiffer Publishing Ltd. I got it from hamiltonbook.com I was curious why the lowest price was $29.95 + tax + shipping from hamiltonbook.com Now I know why. :) I'd been looking for a history of the Flying Tigers that was not a 300 + page book. While not a complete history of the Flying Tigers The Forgotten Squadron: The 449th Fighter Squadron in World War II may be adequate. I purchased a $5.99 DVD-R documentary on eBay supposedly about the Flying Tigers. That DVD-R was a disappointment.

I was given this beautiful bookshelf by my wife's aunt. Doesn't help with my goal of a whole wall of shelves but I'll get there. Already had to re-arrange twice after getting my copy of Hunter of the Dead from Thunderstorm and my Delerium City of the Dead from c marvel.

Yes, I received a shipping notice the same day it arrived in my mailbox. It was shipped on July 8 via Media Mail and I received the shipping notice yesterday, July 11.

The media mail thing was probably incorrect. I had the guys switching all the media mail shipments to priority mail, because slipcases are not allowed to be shipped via media mail. As for the notices, that's probably because I was out of the office that first week we were shipping these, so shipping notices probably didn't get imported as often as they normally are. Also for anyone still waiting I think the last of them were shipped yesterday, so everyone's orders should be out the door now.

I'd take a room full of those cases. Nice!

Sounds like you're talking about my office/library. :cool:

Very nice, Khaos, I'm a big fan of books behind glass, but be careful: those barrister bookcases tend to multiply like rabbits!

Hmm, yes, I see someone else that bought all the special editions of the LOTR DVDs back in the day.

Thanks guys. I'm definitely looking casually for more shelves. Shelf space is a huge issue right now. Before this I only had two smaller shelves and one large long not very tall one that was better suited for toys etc. My dad built the other 3. My Star Wars books are all arranged with the paperbacks in front of the hardcovers and all stacked. So it's a complete pain. And those I just finally put out after adding this shelf.

Love barrister cases but both of mine must be the same sex; no offspring thus far :(. I probably need at least 4 more just to display all my stuff. That's not counting future purchases. Ugh.

The scientists at Jurassic Park thought the same thing and we know how well that went.

Didn't know this leather edition existed.Looks so good. Now I want it as well lol. I shall search for it. I think the easton press one that I have seen are separate books some being signed, and they are somewhat very pricey and very hard to find.

There is one other i believe which you are talking about. That one i saw on ebay selling for 300$.

In today's mail The Wide, Carnivorous Sky and Other Monstrous Geographies by John Lanagan (Trade hardcover edition). I took advantage of the Summer Sale of Dark Regions Press. I had two discount codes (Both used successfully) and got this beauty for just over $10. Without a doubt this is the nicest trade hardcover or paperback edition it's been my privelege to own. Kudos to Dark Regions Press. They knocked this one out of the ballpark.

Got this from Kim today. Looking forward to reading it. The cover is really beautiful. The scan doesn't do it justice. It's from a painting called Downriver.

I actually bought something today that I think is a historically significant piece of horror genre . I paid $245.00 for it, which for me is a pretty big purchase for a single item, but I couldn't pass it up. I had to share it with Y'all because no one in my "real life" would get it. I don't have it in hand yet, i'll share it fully once it comes. I think it's so cool. It is a book, that's all I'm going to share for right now. Stay tuned.

Well here it is guys, my mystery book, Stephen Jones and Kim Newman’s Horror: 100 Best Books first edition, 1988, #270/300, signed by approximately 80 contributors, some that I can even make out, Stephen King is supposed to it there somewhere. I’ve always thought this is a great book. I’ve referred back to my trusty paperback many times over the years. Joe Lansdale’s entry on Ray Bradbury’s October Country is a particular favorite. It was a lot of money to spend on a book, but a pence to spend for a piece of history….80 signatures, couldn’t pass it up. And the photos won't load, I'll try again later.

Hey, congrats, Mike -- that's a great one. I have that one as well -- mine's #194/300 -- and it's quite the production...the number of signing authors is staggering (I think it's around 80). Stephen King, however, is not one of the signing authors...I've seen a copy or two that where he's signed post-pub., so perhaps the previous owner of yours managed to snag his sig as well, but he wasn't one of the original ~80 signing author group, unfortunately. Congratulations again...that's a great addition!

Well, the seller told me there was King signature, but who could tell, it looks like a bunch of DRs got together and signed it HAHAH!! Hope I can load the photos soon.
