    Also very excited for the limited of Strange Weather ... nice to get a limited Joe Hill book from CD
    My buddy across the pond is making a US and UK slipcase. If you're interested, PM me.

    We talked about a slipcase for the trade hardcover for STRANGE WEATHER, but our case maker is so backed up this year that we decided it wouldn't be a good idea to offer it. Some cases are already running months behind, unfortunately!

    Maybe Dan can move these posts to a new thread?

    FLOATING DRAGON is my second favorite Straub book behind GHOST STORY. It's weird and strange and, in my opinion, immensely readable. His work during this period was more accessible than his more recent work. I still regret not picking up the lettered CD edition when I had the chance.
    That's great! I loved Ghost Story (who didn't?) so I'm happy to see this compared to a work I already like. Thank you for the reviews.

    I'd agree with all of this.

X in 1999.

    I have and love the Ghost Story from Hill House, but I would love a nice oversized edition.

    Really? I've always thought that was one of the better djs that's come out in our genre...didn't have much to do with the story (as I recall), but is very evocative and memorable (for me, at least).

    Martin: Yep, Hill House did GS. I'm fortunate enough to have several S/Ls of Straub's: GHOST STORY (Hill House), FLOATING DRAGON (Underwood-Miller), and SHADOWLAND (Gauntlet Press), along with IF YOU COULD SEE ME NOW (Centipede).

    Edit: Sorry, just realized this Straub talk was a pretty major thread drift from Joe Hill's project.

SHADOWLAND has also had a S/L produced...this one from Gauntlet Press. So S/Ls of those books are already out in the wild, for those who want them.
    A limited of Ghost Story was published by Hill House in 1984 as well.

    I would have loved Floating Dragon as well, but SubPress already took care of that title.
