    No, but- I do have couple of days to cave. The author is- imho- the best working Weird Fiction writer in modern times, and one of the handful of whom I buy EVERYTHING from... But- this is uber pricey for a novella that will almost certainly appear in one of her upcoming SS collections, and I cannot justify it. Today.

    And, yay- I finally get to disagree with the otherwise erudite and simpatico Ron Clinton, and say that since I am fortunate enough to keep my books and papers in a dwelling with four walls and a roof (and, I absolutely do NOT take that lightly in these economically crazy-tough, housing-challenged times), that I find "Paper Weights", and the like totally, and bizarrely unuseful, and very much prefer the vastly utilitarian T-shirts, Tote Bags, Ball Caps, et al. But, even better would be an exclusive, original Halloween anthology every year. I think there is still one owed from an older club, but it seems to me to be the kind of thing that Rich built his vision on all those years ago, and why we all love it here- even with all the bumps and roadblocks of the last decade. Would love to see something like that every year for the CDCC.

    I passed. Do not know the authors work well enough to justify the cost.

    Ron, some advise. Never accept wooden nickles
