Also, how do you all feel about F. Paul Wilson writing a story inspired by Pines to be included in the book? It seems disrespectful to me for another author to be included in the book. I don't know. I guess that's Crouch's call. All this combined makes me think I've already decided to pass. Again.
    Well, it had a list price of $50, and using store credit made it $25, so I bought it. I'm not expecting much - Gauntlet tends to over promise and under deliver, but at this price point I don't really care. If it's really terrible, I'll just sell it. If I ever get around to selling the stack of books I have waiting to sell, that is...

    My copy of Ravenous arrived today from CD. It is my first Ray Garton limited edition. The only book of his I've read is Live Girls, which I loved, so I'm looking forward to reading this one as well.

    I don't get wowed by signatures too often, but the calligraphy on this is just astounding!
    I agree! That is a tasty sig!

    Ordered direct from Gauntlet. Barry said in his newsletter last week they were still shipping so I guess I can wail a while longer, just seeing if anyone else is waiting.

    Did you order directly from Gauntlet? I know they were doing inventory last week and therefore weren't doing any shipping. However, I got my shipping notice for Ravenous from CD two days ago, so they have started to ship. Tracking says label created, USPS awaiting item.

    Too bad you can't remember, I'd like to know what didn't work. I mean, I can certainly understand something on one of Garton's works turning off someone unfamiliar with him, but a long-time reader would know generally what to expect.
    It's been thirteen years (2008 pub.) since I read RAVENOUS, so I just don't recall with any detail. I could guess based on the very vague memories I have of it, but it would be unfair to the book and quite possibly inaccurate.

    Garton hasn't had too much published post 2010 -- I think there was FRANKENSTORM, TRAILER PARK NOIR, and MEDS, perhaps (or not?) a couple others that aren't leaping to mind -- so I suppose my lack of buying/collecting his stuff was a mix of my diminishing interest and his lack of new work. That said, I *did* pick up TRAILER PARK NOIR -- how could I not with a title like that? -- and enjoyed it, so my decision to skip his work isn't steadfast...if he comes up with something out of that RAVENOUS world and it sounds interesting, I'll give a shot. Hell, I have almost an entire shelf of his work -- probably more than two dozen different titles -- so he's built up a lot of goodwill with me over the twenty/twenty-plus years I read him, but ultimately I guess it doesn't take much to really shake my confidence in an author -- I've had it happen with Koontz, King, and a number of other once-loved authors that I now either don't read or with whom I'm very selective -- and, for me, RAVENOUS and BESTIAL were those books.
