Harlan Ellison's The Glass Teat & The Other Glass Teat Omnibus (Numbered Edition) from Charnel House. I got to look at it for five minutes before running around all weekend, but I must take some pics when I get a chance.

Just got today:

I had to go to 5 Barnes & Noble Stores and Barnes & Noble. com to find a copy that didn't have a completely mangled dust cover. I looked at over 25 copies of this book and spent 3 1/2 hours travelling from store to store before I could find one that was acceptable (some ruffling on the top of the spine.) But this is ridiculous. I never had this problem with Borders.

Thanks, Mr. Woot! The whole series is illustated by Barker's paintings--which is why it takes so long for the next volume to come out. This one was turned in at 1800 pages and the published version is just under 600--seems like a lot didn't make it...

I used to read Barker faithfully, till about a decade (nah, must be closer to two??) ago, when he would begin a new series, but somehow never continue it. Must be me though - I totally lost track of the Arabat series. How many books are there by now? Is this the second? Third? Will there be more?

And, congratulations, Tom!! Enjoy!!

This is the third book. Funny thing is, the only Barker I've read are his young adult tales: The Thief of Always and Abarat. I know I started The Great and Secret Show, but I can't say if I finished it or not.

Sent off for Easton Press' The Martian Chronicles signed by Ray Bradbury.

http://www.eastonpressbooks.com/leather/product.asp?code=2844

I think it's part of their "Masterpieces of Sci-Fi" collection that they are selling singly (usually a signed volume comes every seventh book in the set. It's not numbered.) It's the original collection of short stories, not like SP's definitive MC volume, but I couldn't pass it up.:cool:

It's from Goldsboro books, it's just the standard version I believe, but they're numbered. Not quite sure why, think it's the number he signed for Goldsboro.

Just noticed they've found some stock of the signed Horns by Joe Hill again. Only £14.99 as well

The signed and dated trade edition of Full Dark, No Stars by King, Night in Lonsome October and The UK signed edition of The Travelling Vampire Show by Laymon as well as the limited edition of Mister B Gone by Clive Barker.
Can anyone give me a guess of how much these books are worth? I of course have a good idea, but I'd be interested to know what others think. The trade by King was actually $225, which I thought was kinda high whereas Just After Sunset was $200, both at Betts.
And now I'm not sure if I'll be able to afford the limited of Weaveworld by Barker since I'm also paying on the Books of Blood limited by Barker as well as the limted edition of Dawn to Dusk by Bradbury too.

Just ordered this (released 26OCT11):

• A handsome slipcase edition featuring a linen slipcase and book cover, foil stamped original design, acid-free paper and a satin ribbon marker.
• A special conversation between George R. R. Martin and Barnes & Noble. The author discusses his writing influences, his own style, his characters and their perspectives, having his vision come to the screen, and more!
• Barnes & Noble' s online series Meet the Writers interview with George R. R. Martin, in which the author talks about A Dance With Dragons, the fifth book in the Song of Ice and Fire series and a love of reading.
• George R. R. Martin answers questions about the new HBO original series A Game of Thrones.
• A special full-color preview, including original character sketches, of A Game of Thrones: The Graphic Novel, No. 1—based on George R. R. Martin's novel of the same name.

It seems a B&N exclusive; I had tried to order the one from Harper Collins, but I never was able to get one.

It appears there are two different states of the UK proof of King's 11.22.63. Both are numbered but have very different numbering schemes. The covers are identical. One has the statement "Embargoed/Hodder & Stoughton" on every page and the other doesn't. Here are the two pages:

I apologize for the lousy scans, but I don't want to take the chance of harming the spine by opening them too widely.

I just got the first of these. I also got a copy of the Publisher's letter, but I'm not posting it until well after the book is published. I don't want to take any possibilities that it could disclose my contact.

Just picked up the Wildside Press release of the first Five Sten novels by Allan Cole and Chris Bunch. Nice trade paperbacks. Three more to go. Hope they don't drag their feet like they did with their Robert E. Howard releases. Cole and Bunch also wrote a great Vietnam novel called A Recoking for Kings. Anyway the Sten novels are great military/spy science fiction. I've enjoyed them for years and I'm glad to be able to get these nice trade editions.

I'll post a few later. They're ok. I can't committ beyond that. I like the set that the University of Nebraska put out in 2005. The Black Stranger is a great collection. The best of the Wildside books is The Gates of Empire. A collection of his historical fiction. "Sowers of Thunder" one of my all time favorite stories. I discovered these in Zebra paperbacks around 1976. Good luck with your Howard hunt. I think I'm done. Oh, the Donald Grant's are a sentimental favorite. I will pick one of those up every once in awhile. Mostly the non-Conan stuff.

Just put up a few. The two on the left are from the University of Nebraska Press. The Black Stranger and other American Tales contains most of his Horror stories, including "Pigeons from Hell". Lord of Samarcand and other Tales of the Old Orient, historical fiction, Red Blades of Black Cathay, etc. Excellent books, acid free paper, good print, tight binding. Great value. The Wildside editions to the right and back are Black Hounds of Death, Gates of Empire and Treasures of Tartary.. Part of a ten Volume set of which I have nine. Not interested in Hour of the Dragon, unless I pick it up for almost free. Not a favorite Conan Story and I'm not a completist, I buy what I like. The collections are a bit of a mish-mash, except for Gates of Empire and Other Tales of the Crusades. I picked them up on the secondary market and was glad to get them for a reasonable price. I think you can still get them at the Wildside Press site. they run about $35.00 each. I think they would be great for someone starting out with Howard. Love 'em no, enjoyed them yes. But I highly recommend the University of Nebraska set. I think there about five or six in the set? A real academic approach to the collections. Love 'em and enjoyed 'em.

I always go back and forth between selling them and keeping them for th kids, who probably won't want them anyway!!! I did pick up a nf to f of a book club copy of sword, so at least it "looks" like a matching set on the shelf.

The Landover are fun reads, but they're not "serious" fantasy, which I expect you already know.

Getting a 1st/1st of Sword is a long way off for me. I'm only buying up the cheap ones right now. Sword is a $600 purchase, can't really justify spending that kind of money at the moment. That and I have a lot of much much cheaper stuff I want to buy first.

4 signed 1st editions of Stephen Kong's new novel 11/22/63. Had a great time at the king event in Boston yesterday meeting lots of people and making new friends. King was on top form during the reading and answering a few questions, actually reading a second time to answer a question! Pictures and a video of the reading to come when I get back :-) Just arrived in Portland and the weather is great!!!

Wow Tom, thats just awesome! Have a good time!

It really is enough to share since the idiots at Simon and Shuster screwed everything up with the limited of the book and now having a "random drawing". I had it in my cart the other day and the website went down and I missed out because of them. I'm not bothering with any random drawing.
Can you send me a copy Tom? If I was you I'd send me a copy. Thanks man!

Just picked up a couple of new additions to my "non-collectors" collection. The first is the first volume of Clive Barker's Hellraiser Masterpieces. This, and subsequent volumes, collect stories from the Hellraiser anthology series originally published 1989 - 1993. This volume has stories by Neil Gaiman, Mike Mignola, Alex Ross, Kevin O'Neill, Larry Wachowski and Barker himself (although he is credited with the story itself the words are from 3 other writers). It is very much is the same vein (pun intended) as the Hellbound Hearts anthology which was where I first read the Neil Gaimen story, Wordsworth.

The second was a bit of a blind buy. I am a keen reader of The Walking Dead series (and have nearly finished the first series of the tv show). This book tells the back story of The Governor who, for those who have read the books, will know has a rather large impact on the main characters (as well as having some rather unique personality quirks). I am a sucker for a good origin story and so will be interested to see how Robert Kirkman makes the change from writing graphic novels to the more traditional form of story.

One i have been itching for a hell of a long time for. A UK 1st edition of 'Fluke,' by James Herbert. For some reason it's a really hard one to find (probably because its over 30 years old and was a really different story for Herbert), especially with no sunfading.

Dave ... can I call you Dave? Anyway, I love McCammon. I am reading The Five right now and was suggesting Swan Song (one of my all time favorites) to someone earlier ... BUT I've never tried any of the books in the series that The Providence Rider belongs to. I imagine you have read the others? If so, what did you think overall? Are they horror? Everytime I read the descriptions it doesn't sound like horror .. more like some sort of Sherlock Holmes vibe?

Hi Ron. Yes, you can call me Dave! The 1442397 is something I use because it's meaningful (to me) and allows me to use the same ID on all the many forums I belong to. There are way too many Daves in the world.

The Matthew Corbett series is really good. I wasn't sure I'd like the books at all, but I figured it's McCammon, and I read them free from the local library, so why not? I was quickly drawn into the story and I'm always looking forward to the next book in the series. If you're not sure about it, you can pick up the first book in the series for a few dollars, used (Speaks the Nightbird).

As for his older books, I hope They Thirst comes out as a limited edition soon. I know I have it buried in the attic somewhere, but it must be 20 years since I last read it.

In addition to the now-20-year-old Dark Harvest limited, Subterranean Press will be publishing a new signed, limited edition of They Thirst, but it probably won't appear until 2014. A limited edition of Bethany's Sin will be published in 2012, and a limited of The Night Boat will be published in 2013.

I just made a post condemning them and their cheap looking books. I'm almost positive they're the ones who published some Bradbury limiteds?? But I've had those for many years so maybe they changed. It's either them or PS Publishing which is horrible too.

Here's what I just got:

The limited slipcased edition of After The Darkness which I can't find anywhere except at The Overlook, for only $60 bucks but had a coupon so it was less.

And Night Shapes published by our very own CD Publications way back in 1995!! I was even buying books from you guys back in those days, but missed this one (as if I could actually remember it). It's by William F Nolan and it's even slipcased, signed and numbered by him and Peter Straub.

I may have mentioned this already but I thought I had bought a DVD of RED, signed by Ketchum but it was actually The Lost, so I just picked up RED too.

Can I ask how much it was?? I didn't know such a thing existed. I have the "regular" edition signed and it cost a pretty penny and that was actually my last purchase (Naw, that can't be right but it was one of my LAST purchases). I then bought the special slipcase to go with it from the overlook. It's pretty cool but lol, it's just an ordinary book with a sig in it and it cost a fortune. You can get plenty of limited editions, including the UK limited of Under the Dome for about the same price I paid for this one (at Betts).

Have you or anybody here have their special DT package? It includes: "DARK TOWER VII SPECIAL OFFER!

ARTIST EDITION + TALISMAN/BLACKHOUSE GIFT SET"

It's awesome looking!! I can't believe just $165 for all this and the slipcase alone looks like it's worth 80 bucks. I also can't believe they still have these left for sale. I bought mine probably a year or more ago and it's probably in the top 3 best produced sets I've ever seen. Even if it was unsigned, it's still worth that price.

But it is Grant so it's hard to get depressed about how any of their books look.

Did you have a chance to get the limited of TWTTK or was it the gift version? I was able to get the limited but damn, they're really going up in price (the limiteds). I have those trades as well.....DT IV-VII along with the limiteds, but I have all the other trades as well except of course, the first one. Just really dumb luck on my part that I won that lottery so many years ago for Desperation, then I didn't realize there were only 1200 copies of Little Sisters made (I think) until recently, and somehow I entered yet another one of their lotteries for that one which I don't even remember, and once again get a relatively low number in 544 so that's the only reason I had a chance at the upcoming eight book. How is it possible to get 544 in a lottery? I would of thought the earliest numbers would have been taken? But then again, since I have the number 911 for the last three DT limiteds, why didn't I get that same number for Little Sisters? I don't get that.

But do you or anyone here know exactly why so many collectors had a chance at Little Sisters but passed on it? Was it because they didn't expect an eight DT book? And why is it one of King's limiteds that's so expensive? I know I'm missing something lol, but my brain has sorta freezed.....but allow me to ask another question to this really long post: what would you recommend if you were me.......buying a remarque of a King book or just try and go for another limited when they're produced? I ask because I have so many limiteds and just one remarque. And I have to do something with all these books since I'm running out of room.

Ok, that's finally it. I hope I at least gave you guys something interesting to read:)

I don't have any of the DT limiteds, so I was not eligible for TWTTK limited. I don't mind. I do need to replace my three Plume Trade PBs of DTI-III with Grant Trade HCs at some point. As for the other questions, I don't buy limteds based on theoretical future value. I buy them because I want to display them on my shelves. But if you're needing to make room for more books, Scott, you can certainly make as many gifts and donantions to my library as you wish!;)

LOL. Well, let me think about that and get back to ya :)
But it's not always about a book's value to me. I do buy lil paperbacks quite a bit to read. In fact, I have so damn many it's impossible for me to read them all. I just have to force myself to do it, that's all. But I'm still trying to get through The Fountainhead and it's soooooo long. On top of that, I constantly change books. I'll even listen to some non-fiction audio book and then try and read a novel along with another non-fiction book or two but with historical non-fiction, I can read it in just a few days. It takes me forever, as people here know, to get through a single novel and that's why I greatly prefer short stories and that's why I'm so excited about C.W's book coming up!! But sometimes it's too much, especially with all the crap that's still going on in my life at this point.

I know what you mean about not being able to get some limiteds you'd like. They really are too expensive and you also just have to have that dumb luck I talked about with Grant and just happen to have funds available to be able to buy one. But I'm no rich man and I have a couple of ruined credit cards to prove that :). I make good money but I'll never be a millionare that's for sure. I also don't have any responsibilities anymore when it comes to a wife and kids so that's why I can buy some of those books. But certainly not like Mr. Woot can!! LOL.

Can I ask how much it was?? I didn't know such a thing existed. I have the "regular" edition signed and it cost a pretty penny and that was actually my last purchase (Naw, that can't be right but it was one of my LAST purchases). I then bought the special slipcase to go with it from the overlook. It's pretty cool but lol, it's just an ordinary book with a sig in it and it cost a fortune. You can get plenty of limited editions, including the UK limited of Under the Dome for about the same price I paid for this one (at Betts).

But that's another reason my house is full of books...it's not just fiction all over, it's non-fiction that's just as bad and probably worse since I have more of that than even limited stuff. Ridiculous really :)

Hey Squire? Does blu-ray play in "ordinary" DVD players? And what about TVs that have a built in DVD player? That's how utterly ignorant I am of technology. I miss the good ol' days of VHS, I really do that's why I have about 100 or so horror films on tape and 5 VCRs. And I have hundreds of "regular" DVDs.....don't tell me they'll become obsolete in favor of blue-ray?

My latest purchase even though I mentioned it elsewhere, was The Bachman Books, a special edition. I'm only mention this one because I've paid it off so it counts as a purchase.

A BLu ray will not play in a DVD player, but a DVD will play in a blu ray player; so if you are in the market for a new player, get a Blu ray--they're pretty cheap now. As far as a combo player goes, single components work better than combined ones. I wont' buy them.

My 2 cents Tom, for what it's worth, is to go with the Lettered format (only because Lettered just reeks of exclusivity :D). And, yep, of course you have to sign it !!!! And, save me a copy, alright ??????? :cool:

And, make sure you get a multi-region player, too !!!!

It's horror, a couple are moving into a new home (a picturesque cottage in the English countryside) and are being helped by 2 friends. Apart from the wierd old lady from the state agents who handed over the keys everything goes great, that is until the cows come to vistit. It doesn't take long for the realisation that they aren't the normal beef burger variety to hit home and a fight for survival follows.

Thanks Squire. Leave it to me to get it backwards. But unlike you I love combos...DVD players built in to TVs. I even have 3 TVs with built in DVD and VCR players that still work great. But what you're saying is that regular DVDs will not be around much longer? They'll go the way of the cassette tape? What am I suposed to do with the hundreds I have?? I guess just hope none of my combos break.

Yep, that's one thing I do need to do since there are so many of those "PAL" DVDs with great flicks on them that unexplainably, have not been put on DVD over here. The Mutilator is a perfect example, one of the best slashers of all time!

Isn't Nicole Kidman from Australia Grant? Nothing against her nationality, but I have no clue how she's made it as an actress. She's just not that good, but she was in that movie I think called Dead Calm. But Tom Cruize (sp?) isn't any good either. He has to be the most overrated actor in history.

Thanks Squire. I was worried about my DVD collection. LOL you have 800??? Wow. They'll be around for 20 years? Then I have nothing to worry about since I'll be dead by then most likely.
I still love VHS since it reminds me of the good ol' days. And that's why I have so many TV combos and seperate VCRs so I'll always be able to play them.
But if they break, I guess nowadays no one can fix a VCR. I'm also worried about a TV I bought in 2001 with a DVD player. The DVD player quit working and I'm wondering if it's possible to fix it now? I think it would just need a new laser....but it's an obsolete TV but it's also fantastic because of different sound modes you can mess around with.

I think DVDs are on the way out, but slowly. Sony closed one of their biggest DVD/CD plants here in NJ last year due to declining demand. Still, there are so many DVD players around they should always be easy to find.

As for VCRs, I bought a couple for $5 each at a garage sale a few years ago and they worked fine. My daughter had a lot of kid movies on VHS, but has pretty much grown out of them now. I still have my first Sony VCR that I bought in 1993 for $440...!

If your TV/DVD player combo has input jacks, you could just buy a cheap DVD player (I see them as low as $20) and plug it in. I certainly wouldn't pay to have the old DVD player fixed.

I was only going to have the DVD player fixed because I like combos so much and have so many. It sounds funny that I'm an electrician but I don't like messing with all the wires for a seperate DVD player even thought it's rather easy to hook up. I guess I have a thing about combos :)

But even if they do stop making them, I get the feeling DVD-r shops will be around a very long time, just like people still use VCRs (at least I hope they're stay around).

LOL I remember in about that same year (1993), my grandma bought me a VCR and it was the latest amazing stereo VCRrs!! And the cost for that Zenith was about $450...the problem was I didn't even have a stereo TV lol. I exchanged it for a mono one.

Haha well i guess you could come to mine, but hopefully later on i will be able to start selling them, i am just sorting out the finer details with Jerome at thedarktower.org . But if you would like to reserve a copy just send me a pm, and if you would like a certain letter mention that too.

The copies will be $25, of which $18 will go to the Haven Foundation fundraiser and $7 to me to cover a small portion of my costs. But in that price everyone will be entered in a drawing to win a piece of the original art by Glenn Chadbourne :)

I was only going to have the DVD player fixed because I like combos so much and have so many. It sounds funny that I'm an electrician but I don't like messing with all the wires for a seperate DVD player even thought it's rather easy to hook up. I guess I have a thing about combos :)

But even if they do stop making them, I get the feeling DVD-r shops will be around a very long time, just like people still use VCRs (at least I hope they're stay around).

LOL I remember in about that same year (1993), my grandma bought me a VCR and it was the latest amazing stereo VCRrs!! And the cost for that Zenith was about $450...the problem was I didn't even have a stereo TV lol. I exchanged it for a mono one.

I went with the high-end Sony model because it had....an S-Video output!!! I think it was an extra $40 for that feature :) I bought a 32" Sony TV at the same time, and the TV is still being used in our friends' basement as a kids' TV. They built them to last back then.

The photos do not do the cover art justice. Mr. Clark outdid himself, the detail on the covers is incredible.

They sure did build them to last in those days. I have a 32" Sanyo in the basement I bought around 1989 and it still works perfectly.
But you know that S-Video? I think that's just a marketing ploy; it can actually make your picture worse.

DMG has some 1st trade HCs of DTII (the best DT;)) that Phil Hale flatsigned when he stopped by their offices last. Got an email notice that mine is on it's way!

Damn. I would of liked one of those.

I just bought a few metal bookmarks and some King paper ones if that counts as a purchase.

Absolutely, Scott. If my beer and pizza purchases for the Superbowl yesterday counted as worthy posts, so does you bookmarks!
