I have all Cemetery Dance magazines except # 6 and a # 22 without the darn mailing label affixed to mag itself :( Anyone out there that may have these for sale, or know someone that knows someone, etc, etc :) Willing to pay a good price for either, or both.

Now have a # 22 (thanks Jeff) :) So now it's down to the elusive # 6 ... come out, come out, wherever you are :rolleyes:

Just saw your collection it's absolutely awesome! So glad to have in a very small part been able to add to it. Best of luck on your quest for #6 and thank you Grant.

Hiya Jeff - Thanks mate, appreciate your comments (and, yep, you were a part of it :cool:). Cheers, Grant --- and I'll get # 6 by hook or by crook :)

I just looked it up and that's a nice one. J.N. Williamson special. Good luck.

Hi Jeff - # 22 made it to the door this afternoon - excellent (I can now relegate the copy that I had - with the mailing label on the cover - to the reading pile :cool:).

Thanks again mate, greatly appreciated!!!

Cheers, Grant

So, this leaves the elusive # 6 to complete the set - does US$150 maybe tempt anyone out there in CD-Land to part with their copy? :D

I have just about a full run...let me check in my collection and see if I have #6. I'll let you know shortly if I have it (or not).

I await your response with baited breath and dread anticipation - something like that, anyway :D Seriously though, if you got it, I want it (how's that for a poker face :p)

I sold my copy of #6 a while back for about $50 I believe. I would have definitely taken you up on the $200 though if I still had it!!! (LOL)

I do have copies of some of the earlier issues still though - #3, 5, 7, 10, 11, 12 (signed by Dean Koontz), 14 (Stephen King story), 15 (signed by Thomas Tessier), 17/18, 20, 21, 23 (signed by Jill Bauman), 26 (Koontz interview), and 27 - if anybody is interested. And I already have a bunch of more recent issues of CD (a number of OOP ones as well) up on the Dark Discoveries web store for sale as well (http://darkdiscoveries.1freecart.com/c/83934/other-magazines.htm )

Drats, back to the drawing board :( I appreciate you looking through your collection though James :)

Sorry, Grant -- just went through my collection and it's not there. I have just a few holes in my run of CD Magazine, and you appear to have seized on one of them. Too bad for both of us. :-(

Good luck in your search.

Oh well, such is life :( The chase is still very much on, and II'll get the furry little bastard one of these fine days - thanks for looking Ron, really appreciated :cool:

Sigh ... No matter how hard I shake the CD forum tree, no coconuts have dropped (yet) :p

So, the ante is upped to US$250

Hi Grant,
Yup, I've got one. I've been slowly building my own CD mag collection over the years, but have stalled out needing only issue 10 and issue 1. We've probably got the same addiction that is only satisfied when we have a complete run of something. Although it would kill me to take a step backward, (especially since James posted that he's got issue 10 for sale at his store) you're making one honey of an offer for a single magazine. Heck, with that money I could fill in the gaps on some of the other series I'm dead-set on completing (the Pan Book of Horror, the Year's Best Fantasy & Horror, just to name two...)

Tell you what - take a few days to do a thorough check around the web to see if you can find a copy (and perhaps a better price) from someone else. If you still want it, I'll post some scans to make sure you'll be happy with it - a quick look shows it to be in really nice shape (and stored in plastic and boxed for a number of years.) Trust me, you won't hurt my feelings at all if you go another route, but at least you've got an option.
Thanks,
Jim

Hey Jim, I deleted the duplicate posts. Everyone's first 5 posts have to be approved by an administrator, which is why it could take a little while for your post to show up.

Alllllright !!!! Jim has come through for me, and a copy of the fabled (to me at least) # 6 is winging its way to me :cool: Thanks to all who took the time to look through their collections for me, thanks to Jeff S for making the offer of his # 6 from his complete collection (although it was painful on both sides, hey mate ??? ;)) and, of course, to Jim, for putting an end to this particular hunt (crikey, sounds like a freaking Academy Award speech - although, in truth, I can safely say that my mother had absolutely nothing to do with it) :p

"I'd like to thank all the little people who volunteered their back as stepping stones on my rise to the top! The glory is surely theirs, though they'll never get it since I'm the one with the trophy!"---From the Academy Award speech I wrote in the 6th grade that I'll never get to deliver due to lack of talent.

Congrats, Mr. Woot. Couldn't have happened to a more verbose-evil-clown-loving-meat-packing....I mean, nicer guy!

Thanks John - the next hunt ??? Hmm, not altoegther certain, but thinking I might round out my Ketchum and/or Lee collection (probably the former as there are less to track down) :D

Hey congrats Grant! The completist in me is happy for you (LOL)

Jimster - If I didn't remember to send you a note, let me know if you want that copy of CD #10 and i'll set it aside for you so nobody swipes it!

I think we're all relieved that we won't be seeing you beg for #6 anymore. :P

The thrill of the hunt is indeed the best part, and I suppose once I've actually received # 6 (it still has to make it through a 12,000 mile flight and handling by two postal agencies yet) and can slot it into it's proper position in the collection, then there'll be a moments silence - then straight on to the next pursuit - Woo Hoo :D

Ha! I do the very same thing!!! Still, I do go back and check up on them from time to time (just to make sure they haven't run away!) :)

Actually, with so many books and so little room, I'm constantly trying different grouping strategies, to try and make them all fit. There's a terrific short story by Ray Bradbury, "The Fruit at the Bottom of the Bowl" that captures how manic I can be about book collecting. Anyone familiar with it?

Hehehe ... with you on that one (re the making sure that nothing has magically disappeared in the dead of night) and the constant reorganisation required to make new acquisitions fit ;)) .... I'll have to check out the Bradbury story you mention, sounds like my sort of story ...

Hmmmmmm ... why does this not surprise me in the slightest, Mr Boone :p I assume that you exhibit only on special occasions, or, like me, is it a random sort of expression, requiring no particular trigger, and only inhibited during the colder winter months, where I tend to terrorise air-conditioned shopping malls in a similar manner instead of the wild and woolly outdoors ;)

Can only imagine the weather is like stateside - we unfortunates down under have to tolerate (as was the case with the winter just passed) two whole frosts and three foggy mornings during those three months. Man, 60 degrees minimum mid winter is our burden to bear :( On the plus side, we can run wherever we want, however we want, and not have worry in the slightest about snow related shrinkage :D
