      Nor I.
      But I was so frustrated with missing a Little Sisters of Eluria sale (I had bought a copy via Abe books, and the order was cancelled..) I bought this instead. Even the lettered edition....
      Hope I won't regret this.

        You wont! I started reading Bentley Little on an SK recommendation. He was discussing his favorite books of the year and mentioned The Store and washed love all over Little. Hmmm...if The Master loves him, I'll check him out. Started with The Store and never looked back. If you don't mind some utterly out there premises and can live with occasionally being frustrated with the direction he takes at the end, you should enjoy him. His writing style certainly differs from the "normal" and he turns everyday things into nightmares(a wal mart like entity, homeowners insurance, and yes, the mail!) which is his charm. Absolutely need to let your imagination ride with this guy. If you want to get a good idea of how he rolls, start with his short story collection, aptly titled, The Collection. The Mailman is one of his best(and earliest) works. I'm waiting for this edition to read it again!

                Send yes! The signature sheets are finally back and we'll be able to send right at the end of the year for a spring publication. Not exactly what we had in mind, but there were factors out of our control, unfortunately. But it's going to be a big, beautiful book, so I hope you'll find it worth the wait!

                    Worth the wait??? CD has taught me something my mother could not.Patience. Of course it will be worth the wait.Besides I have too much to catch up on already.
                    Now I have something to look forward to when spring gets here.

                      Yep, Cemetery Dance products are definitely worth being patient for as they are very good quality and not rushed in order to meet a particular timeline. Was going to say books, but had to change it to products as the IT art portfolio will definitely be worth waiting for as well.

                      Even though I don't actually have one yet (though 2 have been pre-ordered), the same goes for the books that are published by Lonely Road Books

                          Well if you would like to send me one for Christmas that'd be fine with me I think I'd rather have one of those Renewable Certificates though. If only I had the money for one, lol

                                But, ummm, it is better to give than to receive. Yeah, that's it. No need for a mailman guy, just drive (because gas is cheap, you know) and then I can give you a meal and even throw in a box of paperback books that I have 1st edition hardcovers of now. See, so you'd get a meal and a few books (I'll even throw in the cardboard box too!) and I'd get a book (maybe Dark Forces?). So we'd both be giving a receiving. You'd be getting more items, so it would even out or benefit you more, right?

                                Sadly, I am sure there are people (even people I've known in the past) who find that to be a good deal, lol
