    No worries. I just hijacked it for the official thread instead of making a new one and confusing things.

    Thanks for posting this Ron. I was out of the office sick the past 2 days. I have re-purposed your post for the official discussion thread.

    Here's a shot of the full set...the one in the middle without a spine title is THE EVERLASTING by Tim Lebbon, and the one on the left end w/out a spine title is F. Paul Wilson's The Peabody- Ozymandias Traveling Circus & Oddity Emporium. NEP didn't do a lettered for every release, so some you may be familiar with are correctly missing.



    ...and here is another one, by itself on another bookcase top. This one, BERSERK by Tim Lebbon, may be the nicest lettered I've ever seen...certainly the nicest I own. It comes on its own NEP stand, and the face peering out from the car window is striking and plays well to the story within.



    The design is innovative...when the "trunk" of the "car" traycase is lifted up, the taillights go on. You can lock the "trunk" with the key that you can see peeking out from underneath the stand.

    Cool stuff. I think a new collection thread is in order!

    Oh, I already have that covered.

    One bookcase has my HC run of the Dark Tower series, another of my pulp reprint HCs, another with my full run of the metal lettered Necessary Evil Press editions, another with my grandfather's leather law books, another with my various books-about-books...and so on. Believe me, if there was a shelvable area, it's been found and used!

    Won't bore you with the layout in my office and the house, but I can offer the breakdown: Nine full-size lawyer-/barrister-style bookcases, four mid-size lawyer-barrister-style bookcases, one old-time wire-rack spinner for vintage and Hard Case Crime pbs, one short revolving bookcase, one short open bookcase, and one hanging Ikea Billy (glass door) bookcase for the pbs that didn't go in the spinner. Guess that adds up to 17.

    You'd think with all that shelf space that my shelves wouldn't be perpetually at critical mass, with books having to leave when new ones arrive. Unfortunately, you'd be wrong.

    Yeah, even with fifteen or seventeen bookcases, my shelf space is at critical mass, with any new book coming in meaning an old book has to go out...so no room for extra variants of the same book...it's Sub Press or CD, not both, unfortunately. I agree w/ you about Sub Press' edition, though...that too has been part of my decision equation, and thus far has been strong enough to make me resist dumping it in favor of the CD edition. We'll see if that firewall continues to hold. ;-)

    Ron-

    I don't know if you're in a position where you can only have one edition of The Shining, but I have to say, the SP edition's blue monochrome interior art looks just fantastic. I don't have a copy, but if I did, I think I'd be loathe to let it go. (None of which should be interpreted as a slight against CD's The Shining, with which I am mighty happy).
